Istro-Romanian is an ancient language spoken by a small number of people. It is only spoken in a couple of villages in Croatia and Serbia. This language is listed as endangered and it’s a dialect of Romanian.
Speakers of the Istro-Romanian language usually live in villages where they farm and raise livestock. There are some children who speak this language, so it might not die out soon.
Speakers of Istro-Romanian are officially Christian, but few put Jesus Christ first in their lives.
The Istro-Romanian need to place their identity in the one who makes all things new and provides life to the full.
Pray for the Lord to direct Istro-Romanian leaders to lead their people into the ways of Christ.
Pray for Istro-Romanian people to understand the supremacy of Christ, who is far above all.
Pray for the Lord to thrust out Christ’s ambassadors who can earn their trust and lead them to the cross.
Pray that soon Istro-Romanian disciples will make more disciples.
