Since 1981, in a small village in Bosnia-Herzegovina named Medjugorje, the Blessed Virgin Mary has been appearing and giving messages to the world. She tells us that God has sent Her to our world, and these years She is spending with us are a time of Grace granted by God. In Her own words She tells us, "I have come to tell the world that God exists. He is the fullness of life, and to enjoy this fullness and peace, you must return to God”.
The apparitions in Medjugorje continue each day, you can witness the supernatural events and miracles for the church, in this small village nestled between the hills in Bosnia & Herzegovina.
AGLOW IN MEDJUGORJE
In 2008 Jonathan visited Medjugorje and experienced a life changing encounter with the Lord. Aglow Pilgrimages is a fruit of this pilgrimage and the Holy Spirit has opened doors to a large network of contacts who love and serve the Lord in Medjugorje.
We work closely with a small group of local guides, who were among the first guides of Medjugorje and have over 25 years of experience individually.
We are fortunate to have some wonderful friends in Medjugorje, and regularly play sports and enjoy a cup of coffee with the local villagers. Recently, we enjoyed the privilege of attending the wedding of Marina, a long standing friend who also serves meals at one of the local family run hotels in Medjugorje.
It’s this close contact and personal relationship with the people of Medjugorje that make our pilgrimages to Medjugorje so special.
