Situated in southern Central Europe, Austria has been at the "center" of things for centuries. It was at the center of the Roman Empire, classical music, and the Nazi invasion of Europe. The true story of the von Trapp family was immortalized in the famous musical: "The Sound of Music." The mix of spectacular scenery and culture makes Austria one of the most unique places on earth.
Although 78% of Austrians profess Catholicism, statistics indicate that the church is losing up to 40,000 members each year. The Catholic educational system turns most young people away from religion. It is estimated that only 3% of the younger generation has any religious affiliation. We are praying for a team of three or four dedicated missionaries to impact Austria for Christ. With only seven Independent Baptist missionaries serving in this country of 8.2 million, the need is great for more workers! Will you pray for Austria?
