M-Fuge Youth Tackle Barriers to Share Gospel In Germany

Seventy-five high school and college students from five U.S. states took part in M-Fuge International for a week-long experience sponsored jointly by LifeWay Christian Resources and Southern Baptists' International Mission Board. From July 5-12 the participants learned how to lead people to Christ in Cologne, Germany.

Led by both LifeWay personnel from America and Southern Baptist missionaries from several countries, the week-long experience was a "crash course in international missions--a dive-in-and-get-it-done approach to sharing the Gospel with people despite language and cultural barriers," reported the Baptist Press.

M-Fuge youth were bolstered by Bible studies and worship and trained in prayer-walking before venturing out to the streets, parks and shopping centers across Cologne to share their faith with people who at first, would be total strangers.

For Southern Baptist missionaries trying boldly to share Christ with the people of Cologne, the week was "an integral part of their plan. It was not just a classroom exercise, but rather a sowing of Gospel seeds."
