It’s amazing to see new and young believers listen to the Lord’s leading and make difficult choices for the sake of Christ. Zijah and Lorena, the leaders of the Caring for Refugees project in Bosnia get a front row seat!
They shared a story about a woman in their small church in Bosnia named Demila.
Demila Graduates from Med School
Demila is one of our sisters in Christ who came to faith about one year ago. She lives in a smaller, more rural village in Bosnia. Everyone else in her village is Muslim.
Demila just finished studying medicine at a major university, but she hasn’t yet found a job in her field. It’s so difficult in Bosnia to be without a job.
Making the Hard Choice
Recently, Demila was offered a well-paying job in Sweden. Zijah and Lorena were sure she would take the offer and leave their church and their area.
But, Demila said that she felt the Lord’s leading to stay in Bosnia where she has a church family and can have more of an impact for Christ on those around her than anywhere else in Europe. Choosing between a job and a church is very difficult! Praise God that the Holy Spirit is living inside her!
Demila is still looking for a job, though. She’s even looking at low-salary jobs like at fast food restaurants. Let’s pray the Lord provides for her and blesses Demila’s obedience.
