Serbia                              Summer 2011                     Cost $500 est*
Serbia, part of the former Yugoslavia, has been a separate country for only three years.  But Baptists have been there for hundreds, thousands, of years.  Yet, although there are 2,000 Baptists in Serbia now, Baptist is not recognized as a national religion. Come to Serbia and encourage your brothers and sisters in Christ, and be encouraged as you see how God is moving in amazing ways.  This trip would include activities that would match the group’s gifts, and may include construction and VBS but mostly building relationships with Serbian Baptist brothers and sisters.
