Brother Greg, thank you for posting this!!
Yes,Macedonia really needs prayer and more christian workers to spread the Gospel!
Macedonia is a small, mountainous, land-locked, eastern European country. It is one of the former Yugoslavian republics. Macedonia is bordered by Serbia & Montenegro (and Kosovo) to the north, Greece to the south, Albania to the west, and Bulgaria to the east.

-Macedonia may need evangelical pioneering more than any other European nation
-Evangelical Christians make up less than 0.1% of the population!
-Many towns are without any evangelical church!
-Few full-time evangelical missionaries are present and those who are find that the work is slow and there is not yet a great movement among the churches
-95% od macedonians are considered orthodox christians, but
-Long ago, the Apostle Paul brought the life-changing message of Christ to Macedonia, but today many Macedonians say they are Christians simply by their birth in an Orthodox Christian nation, and Christianity means lighting candles and leaving coins on icons; they've never heard about a personal relationship with Christ.
-The people of Macedonia have put their hope in the religious traditions of Orthodoxy or Islam rather than in the blood of Christ.
-The Macedonian Orthodox Church is spiritually weak and vehemently opposed to evangelistic ministries. But despite their harsh criticism (and often ostracism) of those who belong to evangelical "cults", the members of the evangelical church hold strong to their faith and have been involved in outreach ministries to their fellow Macedonians.
-In Macedonia attending evangelical church is still unfortunately considered by many like you are involved to some 'cults' and 'sects', how sad!
-Many,many haven't heard about personal relationship with Jesus and the Gospel
The need is same and big, as 2000 years ago "And a vision appeared to Paul in the night; There stood a man of Macedonia, and prayed him, saying, Come over into Macedonia, and help us." Acts 16:9
The same cry is going on today!
All brothers and sisters who have on heart to help and pray for Macedonia are welcomed!
If anyone has questions about my country, let be free to ask me.
I want to add another site with information about christianity in Macedonian -
