The Extremaduran people speak their own language along with either Spanish or Portuguese. The vast majority of them live in Spain, but a smaller number are in Portugal.
The Extremadurans suffer from one of the highest unemployment rates in Western Europe. Most of the jobs are either in agriculture or the energy sector.
Like most people in Spain and Portugal, the Extremaduran people are Roman Catholic. They view the church as the place to be married and buried, but it has little influence in their daily lives. Their mindsets are often secular.
The Extremaduran people need to allow Jesus Christ to transform their lives. He offers life to the full for those who will accept his “yoke.”
Pray for those who follow Christ among the Extremaduran to disciple others in the ways of Jesus Christ.
Pray for the Holy Spirit to transform Roman Catholic churches in a beautiful way.
Pray for the Extremaduran people to crave spiritual truth.
