Europe – small, but big


Ortwin focuses on these aspects: Europe’s history very briefly. God’s calling for Europe and how did Europe fulfill it? The postwar continent and the beginning of the EU. Today’s problems and challenges. God’s everlasting faithfulness over Europe and His present work. ‘Europe shall be saved!”.

Ortwin was born 1937 in Borneo, Indonesia as son of a German couple, sent out by the Basel Mission. During his childhood he lived in Japan. After school he studied Languages and Theology in Tübingen, Basel and Reading/GB. For 15 years he was a national prayer leader in Germany. Since 2006 and especially 2015 he and his team have been trying to build up a “Canopy of Prayer over Europe”.
