I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh!

Being a stranger from another culture I often feel excluded and alone here in Bosnia. All the problems of the people and the difficult situations in their every day lifes overburden me and I have no advice.

But Jesus said, before ascending to heaven, that he doesn’t leave us alone but sends us his comforter, the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of Wisdom.

In Pentecost the salvating work of Jesus Christ is fulfilled – until his Parousia. In Acts 2 we read about the outpouring of the Holy Spirit, heaven opened for all who had gathered in prayer. There was fulfilled what was predictet long ago by the prophet Joel: „I will pour out my Holy Spirit onto all men and women who serve  me“. No matter if old or young, poor or rich, God uses all men of all classes.

God didn’t exclude me nor did he leave me alone here in Bosnia! And, yes, I do repeatedly experience God’s comfort, his promise „I am with you“ and his security. In the morning when I get up with a feeling of abandonment and search for God in prayer and in his word, he is there and gives me strength. In not so few encounters I realize: Yes, the Holy Spirit is present and touches my counterpart, he is acting. But I long for more! I want to see here in Bosnia the kind of unity and close community the first church experienced. Joyous gatherings, breaking the bread, brotherliness every day. Every day new persons were added who were salvaged and they were higly respected by all people.

This is my prayer for Zenica and I invite you to join me in this prayer. The Holy Spirit has been poured out and leads into all truth, and I can only be his servant.

The good Samaritan

In the gospel of Luke we read a story which gives us a concept for helping people in need. Itbegins with first aid, and ends not until at full recovery! Gospel of Luke 10:33-35:
33 But a Samaritan, as he travelled, came where the man was, and when he saw him, he took pity on him
34 He went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. The he put the man on his own donkey, brought him to an inn and took care of him.
35 The next day he took out two silver coins and gave them to the innkeeper. „Look after him“, he said, „and when I return, I will reimburse you for any extra expense you may have“

A strategic project that became exemplary for the work of „Bridge Of Hope“ in Bosnia.

Poor@home – Nina and Faruk Spahic

Nina and her husband Faruk came back to their home town Zenica in Bosnia togehter with
their 2 children shortly after the war. What expected them there was unemployment, housing
shortage and poverty. Their hopes for a good life were shattered. Then Nina’s experiencing
the living God changed her life. In Jesus she found the way, the truth and life, and since then
she has attended a free church. That’s where we met her. Nina and Faruk were given two
greenhouses by Bridge of Hope, as we reported already. This investment turned out to be very
successful. Nina and her husband are working hard with the talents given to them.
Nina has already worked for our project poor@home for three years. Once a month she visits
the families we chose to support with food packages financed by Austrian donators. Doing so
she has revealed a lot of commitment and love for the people supported. As a local she really
understands the situation of the people there.
