My name is Simona and I come from Slovakia. I graduated from law school in Bratislava 2 years ago. I am very thankful for the opportunity to work as an intern in the office of Europe 4 Christ! in Vienna. I used to make translations of the monthly newsletters for Europe for Christ! and kept in contact with the office in Vienna through internet. Then suddenly, it happened that I had couple months off work and I told myself why not use up this time to help out a little with the project directly from Vienna.
I consider Europe for Christ! a very good initiative, very practical and highly needed during this time. The idea of the initiative is very simple and direct: bring together people from the whole continent to pray for Christian Europe one short prayer a day and send out useful information on alarming topics concerning Europe to common people all over Europe, even outside the continent. It is important to remind people on the matters in Europe that are important and relate to all of us. Everybody has a lot to do; most of us have a time-consuming job, family, friends, and various other obligations. Many people and also many dedicated Christian people do not have time, although they would like to, for keeping track of where Europe today is standing, how the situation has advanced, what new issues Brussels and the state governments have brought up, etc. Europe for Christ! is here to do some of the job for the people; to research, identify and draw attention to alarming issues, harms and also progresses that have been made in Europe concerning the freedom of religion, natural rights conception, concept of family, etc. Europe for Christ! also reminds people that their voice, whether expressed by prayer, an email, or a letter to a politician counts and it is able to make a difference. Staying passive is the worst attitude we can have.
I am also excited to spend some time with such dedicated and godly people who really put their heart to the project and its aim. Simona
