Macedonia, Strumica

Project Macedonia, Strumica  project information
Mission Type
County The former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia
Location Strumica
Date 6/20/2013 - 7/2/2013

There are only 13 Methodist churches in all of Macedonia. Carol Partridge, our United Methodist missionary who serves all of the churches there, will be our team's host and guide. Historically, protestants in Macedonia have suffered persecution from both the Orthodox Church and the Turks, who are Muslim. Tension still exists today but the Methodist Church in Macedonia has made great strides in its efforts to broker peace and cooperation among the various religions in the country. The churches there have developed extensive outreach ministries that serve women, children, youth, the elderly and the physically disabled, refugees and the Roma minority. The primary focus of this VIM trip will be to offer a Vacation Bible School for the children. We are hoping that we will also be able to work with the women, perhaps teaching them to conduct a VBS in the future. The "Roma of Europe" is one of the Mission u study topics in 2013.
