Bosniak in Bosnia-Herzegovina

Bosniaks are typically characterized by their tie to the Bosnian historical region, traditional adherence to Islam, and common culture and language. Once spread throughout the regions they inhabited, various instances of ethnic cleansing and genocide have had a tremendous effect on the territorial distribution of their population. Partially due to this, a notable Bosniak Diaspora exists in a number of countries.

Ministry Obstacles

The Bosniaks have experienced much harm over many years from those who have called themselves Christians. This isn't easy to overcome.

Outreach Ideas

Christians need to build friendships with the Bosniaks, serving their physical and material needs as that is possible.

Pray for the followers of Christ

There are a few followers of Christ among the Bosniaks. Pray they will be bold in their witness for Christ, yet loving and tactful. Pray they will live holy lives, zealous to know and serve Jesus Christ.

Pray for the entire people group

Pray the Bosniak people will understand that Jesus desires to bless their families and communities. Pray that the Bosniaks will hunger to find out more about Jesus (whom Muslims call Isa al-Masih), referred to in the Koran. Pray the Lord will open their eyes to his true nature, and will draw many Bosniaks to himself.

Scripture Focus

"The people who walk in darkness, will see a great light; Those who live in a dark land, the light will shine on them." Isaiah 9:2
