Ywam Kosovo Vision We see God raising a generation who are so hungry for God,who are seeking Gods kingdom, who are going to be a strong army for God, who are going to bring a revival in the body of Christ, and through their intimacy with God they will run to reach Muslims in Balkan YWAM - is one of the first movements that came to Kosovo in 1999 right after the war in Kosovo. Immediately YWAM was ready to help poor families with aids, helping building their houses and being around people who were so discouraged. As YWAM Kosovo we have been functioning in many different ministries like running coffee shop, ministering in churches, youth meetings, teaching in University of Prishtina, running prayer and worship nights for 24hours, evangelism in coffee shops reaching students, praying for sick people in hospitals, worshiping God in streets of Prishtina, praying and interceding for forgiveness and reconciliation in the bridge of Mitrovica, etc. God has been blessing us so much during these years.
