The Swiss Alps in Switzerland are one of the greatest tourist attractions in the world. Switzerland is a very wealthy industrial state with an educated and skilled workforce. Tourism and banking are important foreign exchangers.

The great reformers of the past, Calvin and Zwingli, who expounded the truths of Scriptures, are all but forgotten in Switzerland. Not too long ago, almost every person would have been either Catholic or Protestant, but today, many consider themselves non-religious. The churches are reaching crisis proportions with a lack of clergy and the spreading of liberal theology in the congregations. Yet, there is modest growth in the Free churches, which is an active movement for the renewal of Reformed churches. Catholics are also returning to a more conservative and traditional faith. Pray that these trends to return to their faith will continue in Switzerland.
