The ongoing refugee crisis has changed the focus of Michael and Maria Long’s ministry. The FM Church of Thessaloniki is multicultural and multilingual, with Muslims regularly visiting since Easter 2016. Currently, there are separate meetings in English and Farsi. The Greek FM nongovernmental organization (NGO) called Anagenesis (New Birth) runs language classes, youth activities and women’s groups to befriend refugees and build family trust as a community. These activities open the door for sharing the gospel and growth in the Christian faith.
