  1. Some good practical thoughts about ministry in Europe, which hasn’t been easy. I gather that we should start with the common beliefs of Catholics, then disciple through the Sola Scrittura – The Cross of Christ alone brings forgiveness, freedom from sin, the New Birth, Sons of God, Dead to Sin (Romans), Fruit of the Spirit, meeting…(i have ministered in Italy)

  2. I live in Ecuador which is also a Catholic country just like Spain. When I say “Dios te bendiga” (God bless you) Christians will say, “Amen!” Catholics don’t know what to say. It’s a good way to open a conversation. Everyone needs Christ, and the covid pandemic makes this evident.

  3. We live in Loja,Ecuador. I think this article shows a clear path to more effective evangelism here.
