  • become aware that God wants everyone to know of His love
  • move from a focus on self to a focus on others
  • apply Bible thoughts to their lives as they learn to pray, give, and help others.
  • and their families learn of ways to give their time, talents, and money

Missions Area: Germany

Germany is not a large country. The people of Germany value a clean environment. They recycle effectively. A house could have 3 to 6 cans to sort garbage. Many people ride bikes and take public transportation to places.

Street art and street musicians can be seen in many places.

Many of the people do not think about spiritual things and do not see a need for God in their lives. Missionaries have to develop relationships and show how God is at work in their own lives to have opportunities to share about Jesus.

Additional information and activities are in Summer Mission Friends Leader, pages 26–42, the July leaflet of Summer Mission Friends at Home, and First Steps in Missions, vol. 23, pages 81–88. WMU Year Book 2017–18 also has planning helps.
