Montenegro is a coastal Adriatic state that is small, but mountainous and picturesque. With its beautiful coastline, it is Europe’s fastest growing tourist industry. It was recognized as a state as early as 1077 and became part of Yugoslavia in 1918, and separated in 2006. With their independence, it has brought optimism and hope. If they can avoid the ethnic/religious difficulties that plague most of the other Balkans, then they will have a chance to succeed. Seventy-five percent of the population is Orthodox, but the Orthodox Church has many disagreements between Serbian Orthodox and Montenegrin Orthodox. Evangelicals have been growing, as we’ve seen in many other non-western countries as well. Foreign missions is also just beginning in Montenegro. Pray that the missions and the churches will unite and spread the Good News to the people of Montenegro.
