Did you notice? Something has happened – something unfavorable at least for a few. The winds of change have blown against the Serbians in Kosovo. Once part of greater Serbia the Republic of Kosovo declared independence in February 2008, making Serbians living there only a small minority of the population. The Serbians stand resolutely against the declaration of statehood for Kosovo, and continue to see themselves as part of a pan-Serbian state. Most are strong adherents of the Serbian Orthodox Church and a minority is Roman Catholic, but few have a saving faith in Christ. Intercede that a new wind will sweep over the Serbians in Kosovo – a wind stirred by the life-giving breath of the Holy Spirit.
More Prayer Requests
A couple working with the DIASPORA CLUSTER in ITALY share, “Nine of the top 22 Unreached, Unengaged People Groups (UUPGs) in the European Affinity are related to Italy or Italians. For this reason, we just relocated to Milan, Italy. Please pray for the movement of the Spirit among these UUPG’s and for US churches that might possibly embrace them and begin churches among them. Also lift us up as we build relationships in our neighborhood, as well as across Italian borders in Switzerland, France and Germany. Pray that our language skills will be sharpened quickly and that we will sense and obey God’s leadership in our new setting.”
A member of the HOPE FOR SAXONY TEAM (GERMANIC CLUSTER) requests intercession for a T4T (Training for Trainers) Group of two young college guys, who meet on Thursdays. Pray that they will be faithful and share Christ’s story with their friends.
Members of the DIASPORA CLUSTER (BRAZIL) have a vision for 2013 to train about 100 people and have about 20 groups with the vision of T4T (Training For Trainers). Intercede that this vision will become reality.
Members of the FAR EAST RUSSIA SUB-CLUSTER share, “The land of Sakha (Yakutia) Republic in Russia is filled with gold, silver and diamonds. Legend says that as God passed over this vast land, His hands grew so cold that he dropped all of His precious treasures in this expansive, arctic place. The republic is home to the coldest city on earth, Yakutsk. If it were an independent country, it would be the eighth largest in the world. Yakutia mainly consists of Orthodox Russians and ethnic Yakuts, who are reviving ancient shamanism. May those who dwell in this remote land have the opportunity to receive the ‘unsearchable riches of Christ’ (Eph. 3:8).”
