Central Europe

Praise and Prayer Needs for Central Europe

Pray for Hellas, our TWR partner in Greece, and our broadcasts on commercial FM stations there. An opportunity came up to broadcast on a new station near Thessaloniki. Please pray for the provision of funds for additional airtime.

Praise God for this exciting report: “Over the last seven years TWR-Romania has distributed more than 6,000 fixed-tuned solar panel radios, produced by Galcom-Canada, to listeners inside and outside Romania. The radios allow Roma people throughout the region to listen to Thru the Bible programs in their own dialect.” Pray for God to reach more gypsies with the hope of Jesus Christ!

Our Bulgarian team requests prayer for a spiritual awakening in Bulgaria, where people are becoming more and more indifferent to Christianity. Pray that TTB would be an effective missionary tool for reaching the unsaved and a source of biblical education among believers who need to grow in their faith.

Many of our listeners in Central Europe are facing instability and financial hardship in their circumstances. Ask the Lord to use the TTB broadcasts to deepen their trust in God.

Ask God to bless our ministry to the millions of Roma (Gypsies) scattered across Europe. They are often treated as outcasts in the societies in which they live. Our broadcasts in the Romani language minister hope to millions who feel rejected and devalued.

Region Highlights

  • Our first productions aimed at this region were Croatian, Czech, and Hungarian–all of which started in 1975.

  • High emigration rates in this region of the world hinder many countries’ ability to recover after years of repressive Communist rule.

  • Islam is the largest religion in Albania – some sources have it as high as 70%. And in Bulgaria, Muslim missionaries outnumber Christian ones.

  • The Romani (Gypsy) community is scattered throughout Europe–mostly Spain, France, Romania, and Hungary where they are the largest minority group.
