Pastor Erman woke up really early one morning. Upon waking he began reading passages in the Scriptures asking God to guide him as to what to share with the church congregation that day. These people were relying on him to hear about Jesus and learn about the love of God for them from the Bible.
Pastor Erman Salkovic works on the frontlines in Serbia preaching the Gospel to the Roma people; some of the most impoverished people in the Western Balkans. As the warrior God called him to be, he goes out almost every day to do outreach. In Belgrade alone there are over 100,000 Roma. Most of them live in the slums. With unemployment rate at 90% these people are not your typical congregation.
They need hope, and that is what Pastor Erman is bringing by preaching and spreading the Gospel to these forgotten people. He’s been ministering to these people since 2002. At this time, we would like to provide a family home for Pastor Erman and his family. He has identified a house close by to where he ministers in Zemun, Serbia. The house is about 970 sq. ft, has two bedrooms, one bathroom, kitchen and foyer.
The asking price is $47,000 EUROS about $70,000 Canadian. We’ve already secured $25,000 EUROS and an additional $22,000 EUROS or about $33,000 Canadian is needed.
Would you consider generously assisting us in this worthwhile project? All donations are tax-deductible when payable to Shining Light Ministries. Ljiljana and I are going to the Western Balkans this summer and we would like to make the purchase of the property at that time, if all the funds become available.
Pastor Erman is a key minister in the Belgrade area (1.37 million population), the capital of the country of Serbia. The reach is limitless, and it’s time for God’s people to take back the city and provide hope to these often forgotten and impoverished people.
In Proverbs 22:9 it says, “He who is generous will be blessed.” (AMP) Please, prayerfully consider helping in this urgent and immediate need. Let us partner with Pastor Erman in spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ in the Western Balkans.
