Focus: Mentoring Christians in leadership positions, discipling new believers and church planting.
The People Lithuanians are proud and reserved people with a long history of occupation by foreign powers. Today they are developing their own identity on the world scene.
Major Challenges These include the language barrier; closed, reserved society that is hard to penetrate; and the perception in this predominantly Catholic country that evangelicals are a cult.
Prayer Focus That there will be spiritual openness and that many Lithuanians will come to Christ. That Jesus’ sheep would be strong, united and holy and they would be involved in reaching the lost.
