"The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord," Mark 1:3a
Reaching Europe is the unified effort of several current missionaries to spread the word of the great need for workers of the Gospel in Europe. Like John the Baptist crying in the wilderness, so too is Europe a wilderness of lost souls whom have never heard the Gospel. We must all work together to prepare for the coming of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. Unlike John the Baptist, we do not wear camel hair coats or eat locusts, but if it meant the difference between heaven or hell, we might!
The goal is simple: each summer, we prepare and bring a team of people from churches around America to aid the missionaries already established on the field. Having served as a missionary, I understand the need as well as the burden (I mean blessing, ahem) that groups can be to missionaries. The Reaching Europe team will handle the logistics of the whole process: scheduling flights, hotels or Airbnb lodgings, rental vans, printing gospel literature locally, and a whole lot more. As a team, we work to get the Gospel to the millions untold of Europe with a yearly goal of distributing 250,000+ tracts.
Please pray about (1) joining a Reaching Europe missions team (2) supporting the ministry of Reaching Europe in prayer or in finances.
Please pray about you yourself becoming a missionary to Europe.
Europe is a land that is in darkness. The gospel came to America from Europe, but as we see the land today it is void of truth. Through years of war and negative influences the people of Europe are left in darkness. It is the goal of Reaching Europe Ministries to bring the truth, the light of the Gospel to this dark land.
John the Baptist cried and prepared a way for Jesus. This is the cry of Reaching Europe. Jesus is coming soon, and His field is ready for harvest, but where are the workers? There are many many cities in Europe with no Gospel witness. I plea with you to help by coming to Europe and making a difference in the life of one. Jesus commands us to go. Scripture assumes that we are the light in a dark world. Yet country after county and city after city in Europe is void of men to preach the Word of God. We are proud to be Baptist, KJV, and Independent, but has this pride taken the place of going?
I say, no.
I plead that we must stand for truth against the lies of the Devil and against the lies of the Catholic Church. Moses was willing to stand in place for the Israelites. Are we ready to at least go and share the Gospel with those whom have never heard? Jesus is coming again. It will be too late for many, but for such a time as this great hour, please have compassion and ask God if you can make a difference in getting the Gospel to those who still have time before it is eternally too late.
There is a need. There is a void. There is an opportunity to reach Europe with the Gospel. The void is not the Gospel, but the laborers. Each summer, Reaching Europe connects with current missionaries already on the field and joins them in the evangelism of cities and towns that have never heard the truth of the Gospel before.
The plan is simple:
- To be "the voice of one, crying in the wilderness" of the Gospel desert called Europe.
- To educate and encourage others to go to Europe and see the need for light and salt of the gospel.
- To encourage those serving in Europe and engage with them in the trenches.
- There are many other goals to Reaching Europe and can be found by means of this link: vision.
The price is priceless when considering the cost Christ paid on Calvary. The people of Europe need to hear the Gospel news before it is too late. The cost to get to Europe and spend 10-90 days there varies from $2500 to $7000. Please contact Jason Mann for details.
What is involved in taking a missions trip? How many can go? Each trip will be a little different depending on the focus of that trip. The goal is to have 10-15 people per trip. This is a comfortable number for hosting and leading.
