ECM longs for...
The population of Bosnia and Herzegovina consists, among others, of Bosnians, Croats and Serbs. This country always has been poor, but the situation has deteriorated after the civil war in the nineties. It now is the poorest country of Europe and its people are heavily divided because of the war.

In the midst of the mainly Islamic population, the Christian testimony is barely heard in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The Trajkovski family is active in a church plant in Novi Travnik. Furthermore, by broadcasting radio and television programs, they are reaching a large target group with God's message of hope.

ECM longs to see that through their contacts and through the small chuches in this country the Gospel may be heard more and more clearly, as a message of peace and prosperity.

Facts

Economy
The war of the early 1990s devastated Bosnia and shattered its fragile agrarian infrastructure. Massive population movements, wholesale destruction and disruption of communications sank the economy further. Foreign aid is still important as is rebuilding the infrastructure; tourism is growing in importance. Seemingly, the only issue the different communities agree upon is to aspire to the financial windfall of EU membership.
