Hundreds Protest Against Covid Restrictions in Switzerland

On Saturday, nearly 2000 people participated in a march in the city of Wohlen, Switzerland near Zurich. They were protesting ant-coronavirus measures put in place by the Swiss government.

Though the measures in Switzerland have been quite moderate compared to other countries, some citizens are clearly not happy with the restrictions.

Switzerland is a country of nearly 9 million people and no North American Baptist missionaries of which we are aware. Operation World put this percentage of evangelicals at 4.4%. The country also had the highest proportion of foreign residents of any major country in Europe. The city of Geneva is 45% non-Swiss.

Pray for the Christians of Switzerland and for gospel workers to plant churches there. Switzerland certainly had a long Christian heritage, but like many places, it has also become increasingly secular.
