Austria is home to quaint villages nestled between towering Swiss Alps and crystal lakes. Striking historic architecture set against the mountains blends both natural and man-made beauty. A historic legacy of music and culture has made Austria an appealing tourist destination. The people, though stand-offish at first, are kind underneath the facade. Although material wealth is prevalent, Austria is spiritually poor. On the surface, it is a strongly Catholic culture, with dramatic cathedrals and adherance to Catholic traditions. However, there are more registered prostitutes there than Christians. An effort is rising among the youth to quench spiritual drought. Be a part of this movement.
Our ministry will be with missionary Gowan Wheeler and his team. He and his family have been in Austria for ten years. He has a passion for Austria and changing students' lives there.
Our team will fly into Vienna and then travel to beautiful Salzburg, Austria. We will help Gowan hold a summer camp for the youth of Austria and Germany.The team will be in charge of the games and other needs Gowan has in the camp's orchestration.
Most of the students are the only Christians in their schools, and they look forward to seeing others who share their faith. This is our chance to support them in their endeavor to pursue God.
