Europe: Hearts That Have Grown Cold

Europe is the world’s second-smallest continent, covering about 7% of Earth’s land area. Of Europe’s 50 countries, Russia is the largest and most populous. It’s the third-most populous continent after Asia and Africa, with a population of about 743 million or 11% of the world’s population. From the Renaissance forward, Europe played a predominant role in global affairs through colonialism. The Industrial Revolution, which began in the United Kingdom at the end of the 18th century, gave rise to radical economic, cultural, and social change in Western Europe, and eventually the wider world.

Greece: Jordan & Hannah Newell—HPC

At the Hard Places Community, our team is thrilled to be centered in Athens, Greece, fighting for people of all nationalities. Thousands of refugees have fled from war and strife, made their way to Greece, and are searching for safer and better lives. We at the Hard Places Community are passionate about seeing these lives restored with a new hope. We are praying for restoration and joy within this suffering population.
