We thought you might be wondering: "What does it feel like to live in a country like Austria?"

David and Linda James explain:

“When the Lord called us to Austria over 20 years ago, I don’t think either of us could have imagined the incredibly rich and varied life He would give us here.

“The stunning beauty of mountains and lakes are a constant reminder of His power and artistry, the spiritual darkness around us a reminder of why His Son had to die to set us free.

“It can take a very long time to win the trust and friendship of the Austrians around us, but once won their friendship is faithful and generous.

“In an age of increasing rootlessness, I deeply appreciate the still strong sense of community and tradition in the small towns and villages.

“Though at times a hurdle to people being open to the gospel in a new way, the gospel does indeed mean community and it’s a privilege to be used to build God’s communities in this spiritually needy country.”
