The Canary Islands are a chain of seven Islands located off the west coast of North Africa. They are a privileged place to live, surrounded by stunning views of creation. Evangelical churches have a presence in the larger cities, but many towns have no witness to Jesus Christ.
From the healing waters of el Hierro to the eternal spring of Tenerife, the islands are bursting with natural wonders. Although many tourists never leave the beautiful beaches, a drive of just a few kilometers can take them through several diverse, spectacular sub-climates.
Many outdoor enthusiasts take advantage of the year-round temperate climate and travel to the islands to hike, kayak, cycle, run the trails, or participate in triathlons. A love of nature and the outdoors is evident among the tourists and the locals. How many of them stop to wonder if there is a God who created it all?
Many Canarians search for answers in tradition, and many others avoid searching at all. But the answer to all of their questions and doubts is found in Jesus Christ. Many of the islanders have never heard that God, the creator of all that they see around them, offers them a relationship with him that will bring them lasting meaning and joy.
Pray that the message of good news will come to towns like Santiago de Teide, La Victoria de Acentejo, and Firgas, a message that they have never heard. Ask God to change the hearts of the Canarians, so they can discover the love of God and find the hope of the creator of the mountains, the sea, and the sun that adorns these breathtaking islands.
