Our Treasure in Jesus
God, we love you! As your Church, help us do what it takes to let the people of Bosnia grasp the Good News that we are new creations IN Christ! (2 Corinthians 5:17)
Testimonies from Around the World
This year, we are highlighting real stories from around the Muslim world. Pray that God’s kingdom comes in Bosnia and all around the globe!
Mesbah from Bangladesh said that, “Atheism seemed right after one becomes disillusioned with his religion”. But later he realized that this vast and orderly universe and every unique aspect was not created by chance. These masterful creations must be the creation of a Creator. He later attended a church service. The pastor presented an excellent argument for the existence of the Creator. After that, Mesbeh joined a Bible study and was baptized into Christ a few days later.
Pray that as “the heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims his handiwork…” (Psalm 19:1-4), men and women continue to hear and turn to the One who spoke them into existence and continues to speak through the Word who became flesh.
“If others share this rightful claim on you, do not we even more? Nevertheless, we have not made use of this right, but we endure anything rather than put an obstacle in the way of the gospel of Christ.” (1 Corinthians 9:12 ESV).
Jesus, give the church in Bosnia grace to cherish your name above all else, that they would be equipped to endure in hope any measure of suffering or challenge, rather than see an obstacle placed in the way of your gospel. The challenges and obstacles to the advance of the gospel in Bosnia are many, but as the church lays down it’s rights and claims, you are faithful to bear the fruit of glory from the tree of suffering. May it be so among the Bosniaks.
Jajce, located in Northern Bosnia, is known for its beautiful waterfall and historical landmarks.

We can reach our world, if we will. The greatest lack today is not people or funds. The greatest need is prayer. — Wesley Duewel, head of OMS International
