June 28, 1914 finds a 19 year old Bosnian man sitting on a bench in Sarajevo. When people pass by him they do not know that he is one of nine children born to a postman in Bosnia and that he suffers from Tuberculosis. They also do not know that he has a definite purpose in mind and will soon change the world.
As he sits there he watches a car come down the street towards him. As the car turns the corner in front of him and comes to a stop he walks over and shoots the occupants of the car. This is a catalyst that will lead to the deaths of more than 17 million people.
This young man is Gavrilo Princip who shot Archduke Ferdinand and his wife Sophie. This assassination was to lead to the Great War in Europe, World War 1, which changed the face of Europe and claimed more than 17 million lives. Just think that all it took was one young man committed to a cause that he believed in.
Just think of what God could do with young Bosnian men that would give themselves to him. Please pray with me that God would raise up a group of young Bosnian men to take the Gospel to the world.
