L’Abri began in 1955, when Francis en Edith Schaeffer opened their home in the mountain village of Huémoz (Switzerland). When the Schaeffers started, there was no plan for a “L’Abri.” Without any money and unsure of being able to remain in Switzerland, the Schaeffers had merely decided to open their home to the students their daughters invited home from college. What grew out of this humble beginning is the work that today is called L’Abri with branches in 9 different countries. The Dutch work of L’Abri started in Eck en Wiel in 1971.
