There are hundreds of untold stories of believers who have suffered deeply and are now quietly living in faithfulness to Jesus through forgiveness, love, and reconciliation. Helping believers share their stories will have a multi-faceted impact:
On a local level, I hope to be a resource for busy and overworked local churches and missionaries by assisting them with their global communication–helping them tell their stories in a truthful and compelling manner.
On a global level, I hope to raise awareness regarding God’s work in the Balkans so that the global body of Christ can learn appropriate ways to support and encourage local believers and missionaries in the Balkans.
In terms of research, there are many areas in the Balkans that do not have many believers or missionaries. I hope to explore these places, people, and contexts, for such research will greatly assist the local churches and mission agencies in their work.
