The nation of North Macedonia has historically been characterized by poverty, unemployment, and war, and as a result, hopelessness is no stranger to North Macedonian society. Abortion, drug abuse, suicide, and human trafficking are just some of the evils which unfortunately fill the vacuum. But Assemblies of God missionaries Tim and Elle Bentley are bringing hope by introducing Macedonian communities to an authentic relationship with Jesus.
North Macedonia is a country in the Balkan Peninsula in Southeast Europe. It gained its independence in 1991 as one of the successor states of Yugoslavia. It has 2.06 million inhabitants, with a quarter of those living in the capital city of Skopje. The majority of the residents are ethnic Macedonians, a South Slavic people. Albanians form a significant minority at around 25%, followed by Turks, Romani, Serbs, Bosnians, and Aromanians.
