Cesar and Simone Sotomayor (Austria)
Cesar and Simone are missionaries to the Farsi speaking refugees in Vienna, Austria. They have worked among the refugees for 10 years and believe that now is the time of opportunity. They do a regular weekly outreach among these refugees usually in camps and on the streets of Vienna. There are Farsi, Dari and Pashtoo speakers on Cesar’s team who are able to communicate with the refugees. There is a Christian coffee shop called “Oasis” that provides a safe space to meet, have fellowship and share the Gospel with refugees, the majority of them being from Afghanistan and Iran. They also offer courses of German language for beginners.
One of the goals of their ministry is to help refugees feel welcome and safe in a strange for them world, to show them that they are not alone in a totally foreign land, and simply to live together in the love of God. They have the joy of seeing Afghans and Iranians come to Christ and follow Him! Their ultimate goal is to revive an Afghan congregation in Austria. The Farsi name of this project is “Anjoman” (Fellowship).
