On January 28, 2016, a new church plant was officially established in a village outside Skopje, the capital of the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia. Pastor Lyubcho, the Bulgarian Roma Ministries coordinator, and VISA missionary Chance Galloway had been working, training, supporting, and loving the people in this church plant for over a year.
Robert Kurtish and his wife, Birsena, lead the work in a predominately Muslim community with some say as many as 50,000 Roma living there. Robert was raised a Muslim, but God's love and peace drew him out of darkness and into His marvelous light. They are currently in association with the Free Methodist Church and are investigating what it will take to officially establish the church in Macedonia.
