TELL ME MORE: Most of the students at Portugal’s Madeira Adventist Primary School do not come from Adventist homes. So they often share with their families what they learn in school about Jesus.Today there are nearly 176,000 members in the Euro-Africa Division, a ratio of about one Adventist for every 3,400 people. Church growth is steady, but slow. Many challenges to mission remain in this diverse territory. Post-Communist-bloc countries that once embraced the gospel are quickly becoming secular. In some non-Christian nations sharing the gospel can be difficult, even dangerous. In wealthy countries people often feel no need of God.
