Serbia is a country of just under 8 million people. While 80% claim to be Christian only .6% are Evangelical. A majority of the people in Serbia equate religion with nationality so if you are Serbian, you are Orthodox. Among all of the main faith groups (Orthodoxy, Islam and Catholicism) only the Evangelical communities worship in multi-cultural communities. The Balkan Wars left a range of unresolved issues: the devastated economy, a fragile democracy, and poor relations with neighboring countries and treatment of minority groups (including in Kosovo).
Please pray for:
- the Evangelical communities to strengthen in numbers and be a catalyst for good.
- the Serbian youth to not fall prey to the evils of the world and to find a new reason to live in Jesus Christ.
- more missionaries to be led by God to Serbia.
