Preaching the gospel in a secularized society

The Presbyterian Church of Portugal (IEPP), the oldest Protestant church in the country, traces its history to 1838, when a physician and missionary from Scotland opened a small hospital and a school and began to preach the gospel on the Portuguese island of Madeira. Soon, persecution began in this predominantly Catholic country, and most members of the IEPP had to flee.
