Challenges for Prayer

Christian media ministries for prayer:

a) The Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina Bible Society was formed in 1999 as a cooperative effort for Scripture and literature publication. The Bible Society is translating the entire Bible into Bosnian.

b) TWR broadcasts in Serbian (6.5 hours/week), Croatian (4.5 hours/week) and Bosnian (2.5 hours/week). More Christian radio is clearly needed in the major languages.

c) The JESUS film is available in Serbian, Bosnian, Croatian and Romani.
