Pastor Steve Aubushan, Bosnian Refugees in St. Louis, MO

"I’m the pastor of Vandover Baptist Church in St. Louis, MO. There is a program that occurs on Saturday mornings to feed the Bosnian refugees in St. Louis. Besides meeting just their physical needs, we know that the most important need is to meet their spiritual needs. Very few of the people here have heard the name of Jesus Christ. They’re from a Muslim background."

In Belgrade, Serbia, there’s a very poor community of about 2,000 people who don’t have electricity, a sewage system, or running water. They feed themselves by collecting from garbage dumps. These people are living in appalling conditions.

Open Air Meetings in Zagreb, Croatia

I used to study theology in Zagreb, Croatia during the communistic era. At the time, it was not possible to freely express the confession of your personal faith in Jesus Christ. You couldn’t imagine having open-air meetings and preaching about Jesus in those meetings.

Bosnian Refugees Evangelism

There were over 50,000 Bosnians in the St Louis area, and we had the privilege of meeting many of them. Some were from a Roma or Gypsy background; some were from a Serbian or Croatian background. Nevertheless, they were all Bosnians. A few local churches in St. Louis wanted to evangelize these people for a few years already but were unsuccessful to obtain a Bosnian speaking evangelist until they contacted us. They asked us to come in May and in July-August of this year in order to determine if a church can be started among these people and then to locate a ministry family from the Western Balkans that would be interested to relocated to St Louis and do the work.

Macedonian Roma Work

Shining Light Ministries has just received a wonderful report from Rev. Aleksandar Vuletic of the work among the Roma people in Skopje, Macedonia, which they completed this summer. There are over 75,000 Roma that live in this city. Most of them came from a Muslim background. They didn't know the Lord and they live in very poor and often despicable conditions.

Open Air Meetings in Macedonia

Struga, is a city located in Macedonia, where the Apostle Paul first preached about Christianity. Struga is also known as the Motherland of the Gospel, and proved to be a terrific site for our open air meetings. It is here where hundreds of Macedonians and Albanians, mainly from Kosovo, were exposed to the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

A Different Fire From Heaven

Many houses and buildings have been burned during the NATO air campaign against Yugoslavia. Often even people have perished from the fiery bombs. But in Southern Serbia, in the central area of the Balkans, a different fire has been burning within the hearts and souls of the Gypsy people.

The Balkans Revisited

I thought that throughout this year my life would be peaceful, that I would have time to indulge in personal interests and projects. My desire for the past 10 years was, and is, a deeper study of the Psalms. Little did I know that the war in Kosovo was going to postpone that dream.
