Opening Closed Doors

ABWE missionaries find creative ways to engage with the Portuguese.

From Message magazine issue "The Doctor Is In"

At first glance, the old-world charm of Portugal is captivating. But despite its old-world appearance, a new age has taken root and the doors of many hearts are closed to the gospel. Most Portuguese are far more interested in other pursuits, and ABWE missionaries are creatively using these other interests to connect with them. Missionaries are reaching people through community choirs, running clubs, and a bookstore, and we pray Christ will use these ministries to open doors and hearts to His grace.
