After the USSR dissolved in 1991, many of their “client states” such as Yugoslavia made radical changes in their economic policies. It was difficult for Yugoslavia to move from a socialist to capitalist economic system. As a result, many were unemployed, and those who had jobs were often not paid. To make matters worse, Yugoslavia broke up into several smaller nations, and there was fighting. For these reasons, many Yugoslavians had to move to places where they had safety and job opportunities. These included Luxembourg, Czechia, Netherlands and Canada.
In the case of Canada, many Yugoslavians arrived as early as the 19th century. Most of them came via California. Most were farmers but some worked in factories or on the railroads.
The Yugoslavs have been in Canada for generations, so they are acculturated. They speak the language of the host country and work just about any kind of job.
Most of these people are ethnic Serbs who are Orthodox Christians. They have a foundational Christian belief, but there is sometimes a tendency to look to traditions instead of the living savior. Like many Europeans, the Serbs often have a secular worldview.
The former Yugoslavians need to find their way to the cross and the empty grave and put all their trust in Jesus Christ.
Pray for Serbian disciples to make more disciples who will make even more disciples.
Pray for a spiritual hunger that will lead Serbians to focus on Jesus Christ.
Pray for the Lord to use Serbian Christ followers to teach others the principles of the Bible.
Scripture Prayers for the Yugoslav former, general in Canada.
