Chad is responsible for ministering to missionary children throughout Western Europe and for taking part in evangelistic efforts. He says it is a tough place to share the gospel and when he approaches people, a typical response is, "Oh, we already know about all that. We don't need it."
The region is marked by "a spiritual deadness that you can't believe," Chad notes. "To me it's the hardest mission field on the planet right now. I think about Ephesians 6, where Paul talks about [how] we're fighting a spiritual battle. And the battle lines are drawn in Western Europe, especially with all the immigrants there."
