Maybe you have heard about Serbia, maybe you have not. Serbia has been a country for a long time. After World War 2, the Soviets took over Serbia and shortly afterwards combined several countries into what was called Yugoslavia. In the 90s, parts of Yugoslavia broke apart and reformed with just Serbia and Montenegro. Finally in 2006, Serbia became its own independent country again.
Serbia is completely landlocked and surrounded by the countries of Bosnia, Hungary, Romania, Montenegro, Kosovo and Bulgaria. Sadly, the country is filled with darkness. It is a country that is around 90% Christian, but that is mostly mad up of Orthodox and Catholics. Also, 3% of the population would be Muslim and that number continues to grow as many refugees spread across Europe.
It is home to one of the largest Orthodox Cathedrals in Europe. Sadly there is little gospel witness in the country. A country for years that suffered under Communism, but now the doors of it are open to the gospel. Who will give their lives and go take the gospel to Serbia. Will you give your life to share the life changing news of the gospel with the people of Serbia?
