Title: Luxembourg

Tier: 1

Type: country

Nearly half the population of Luxembourg are expatriates. The resulting growth of other faiths presents a challenge to traditional faith. Islam, Orthodoxy, Jehovah’s Witnesses, and Eastern mysticism and the multiplication of Protestant and Independent groups have transformed this small nation into a melting pot of religious expression. Pray that believers in the Lord Jesus might seek and make use of chances to share the gospel, and help shape the nation according to biblical principles.
