Introduction / History

Sweden is deeply rooted in the matters kept closest at heart such as family, religion and traditional holiday celebrations to unite the people. Sweden has one major language, Swedish. Some minorities speak Finnish, Lappish, Norwegian, Arabic and Danish. Most Swedes can also speak English. However, Swedish still remains the official language. As in many countries there are different dialects. The southern Swedish dialect is related to Danish and can be hard even for other Swedes to understand.
Most Swedes remain in Sweden, but there are some who have migrated elsewhere for work. Germany is one of these countries. Many of the Swedes live either in Berlin or Hamburg.


What Are Their Lives Like?

Many Swedish adults in Germany are employed in industrial occupations and office work in the public sector. People in rural areas of Sweden still farm as a major means of employment. The majority of Swedes, nearly one-quarter, are employed in the service industry.
Reserved to strangers, Swedes tend to be a challenge for evangelism at times. Depression is a problem for many. The younger generations are more and more influenced by western globalized culture.


What Are Their Beliefs?

The main religion is Lutheran, and most children are baptized as infants. However, most are atheist or agnostic, especially those in Germany. Materialistic worldview predominates. There are Swedish disciples, but much fewer of them in Germany than in other countries.


What Are Their Needs?

Pray they will move beyond a mindset of self-sufficiency and put their trust in God.
Pray for the Holy Spirit to do a miracle in Sweden by drawing thousands to Christ.
Pray for the Lord to thrust out Swedish Christian believers to take Christ to Swe
