The Bosniaks: A People at
Filmed May 2002 and May 2004
The people living in the
Balkans and Bosnia, in particular, always seem to be at a
crossroads. For over a thousand years, the people in this area
have been oppressed by towering political and religious systems …
one powerful conqueror after another … each casting a shadow over
this land, each representing another crossroad in the lives of the
Today the country is at peace
after a devastating civil war that occurred only a little over a
decade ago. Political stability is maintained by thousands of
soldiers from the European Union countries. During this time of
calm, the two million Bosnian Muslims, the Bosniaks, are also at a
crossroad. They now have access to a Bible in their own
Now Bosniaks living in the
villages and cities can discover Jesus Christ from God’s Word
allowing them to make the choice leading to eternal life and away
from the false teachings of the Koran.

… Then and Now (
Script) Less than
seven years after the 1984 Olympics held in Sarajevo, a brutal war
lasted for nearly four years. The graves of the tens of thousands
of people murdered by the warring factions cover the hillsides.
They remain as silent testimony of an event that occurred such a
short time ago in comparison to the two millennia of recorded
history of this land. History, coupled with the beauty of the
mountains, makes Bosnia an important tourist destination. The new
offices and apartments of Sarajevo show economic progress. Come
and visit this historic land and its people!
Script) In April 1992, a long running
conflict erupted into a brutal war. Sarajevo became a killing
field. As the siege stretched to months, survival was becoming
desperate. A tunnel would be dug under the airport runway. 150
men dug day and night, all by hand; in very adverse conditions.
The tunnel was 18 feet under the runway, a little over three feet
wide and only five feet high. The total length was about one half
Villages of Bosnia
Script) Time seems to have
stood still in the mountain villages
of Bosnia. Many of the villages are built along steep hillsides
or on a saddle between two mountain peaks where the air is clear
and crisp. There are no busy streets. Traditional dress is still
common in the villages. Villagers are usually friendly and
complete strangers are invited in for coffee. The lower
elevation villages are more modern than those in the mountains.
Daily life is somewhat different in these villages. They have
many up-to-date conveniences. The villages of Bosnia, small or
large, in the mountains or in the lowlands, need to hear about
Cities of Bosnia
Script) Life in urban Bosnia is much like
other western cities. People appear to be slaves to the
trappings of their own making. All are hurrying through their day
and through their life anxious to reach its end, yet, without true
knowledge of what is at the end of life’s journey. Do they know
where their journey will end? Do they know where they will spend
eternity? Jesus is calling them to the life He intended for them
all along, but it is difficult to hear Him through all the
noise…the traffic…the busyness of each day’s routine.
We’ll Call Him Ibro
atop a steep Bosnian mountain, Jezcica is much the same as
thousands of other Bosnian villages. Ibro’s life is not very
different from his father’s or his grandfather’s. Generations have
lived and died in the tiny village where his forefathers embraced
Islam hundreds of years ago, and where Ibro still follows blindly
in their traditions.
Why was it
In the Balkans, in the country of
Bosnia-Herzegovina and on the eastern edge of the capital city of
Sarajevo, is a bridge made of concrete and steel. On one end is a
small faded foot trail. On the other is a sheer granite wall.
This bridge will never be used Why was it built? There are few
bridges that are able to cross the barriers that exist between the
three major religious groups. The groups have become countries.
A new kind of bridge is needed in the hearts and minds of people.
… Pray that the people of Bosnia will discover that Jesus is the
only way … the only bridge to God.
Dispelling the Darkness
Script) Because the shadow of Islam covers them in the darkness of
deception, the Bosniaks are without the True Light. Of the two
million Bosnian Muslims living in the country, only 200 have been
identified as evangelical believers.
Script) Until recently this was a country
without the Word of God in their own language ... almost 2
million Bosnian Muslims without any seed to grow in their hearts
and minds. … Then, in 2002, the first New Testaments were printed
in the Bosnian language. ... Soon a vision was born ... a vision
to saturate this land with the Word of God ... to prepare for a
great harvest that has never been known in this land of weeds,
thorns, and rocks.
