When our team arrived in Macedonia first week of September, the local church gathered for the first time since March. It was a huge encouragement to them to know that God sent people across the globe in the midst of a crisis to be with them, pray with them, share with the youth and help them reach out into struggling and impoverished gypsy communities.
The Macedonian church is in great need of evangelistic support – partners who will teach them creative ways of evangelism and reaching communities with the Gospel. Though this time our evangelistic efforts were somewhat limited by the Covid-19 restrictions, there are two specific groups of population we plan to target on our next Macedonia mission in April 2021 – the youth, children and the Muslim Albanian minorities. We also plan to cross the border into Greece to minister in the Thessaloniki area, following in the footsteps of the apostle Paul.
When the Lord gave us the “Macedonian call” to the Balkan region in January 2019, it was an extremely strategic and timely moment. We look forward to what doors God will open to us in this region.
