Challenges for Prayer

Most ethnic minorities have little to no meaningful interaction with the good news. Pray for sensitive and loving outreach to:

a) Bosniaks, who may number up to 11% of the population and will be almost exclusively Muslim. Their extreme hostility toward Christians is justified, given the atrocities in the Balkans during the 1990s.

b) Albanians, among whom there are no evangelical churches or groups of believers.

c) The Romani, officially only 0.5% of the population but likely significantly more. As in other Balkan nations, they are poorer, often despised and are proving more open to the gospel than most ethnic groups.

     For an additional 3 Challenges for Prayer see Operation World book, CD-ROM, or DVD-ROM.
