KOSOVO: unilateral declaration of independence

Religious Liberty Prayer Bulletin | No. 467 | Wed 27 Feb 2008

FEB o8 UPDATE (excerpt)

KOSOVO: On Sunday 17 February Kosovo's Albanian leadership made a unilateral declaration of independence. Kosovo's Christians are now a tiny minority in a Muslim dominated self-declared independent state. Since the Balkan wars of the 1990s Islamic groups have been consolidating in Kosovo, with plans to turn the province into a base for terror operations. Kosovo's Serbian remnant (predominantly Serbian Orthodox), along with an incomparable wealth of Christian heritage dating back to the Middle Ages, are immediately and seriously at risk.

Please pray for the Church in Kosovo. Psalm 46.
