For 32 years now, in Medjugorje a small mountain village in the region of Bosnia, Herzegovina. This true story takes place in the Bijakovici section of Medjugorje. Six trustworthy witnesses, testify firmly under oath, that since the 24th June 1981, the Blessed Virgin Mary, or "Gospa", as she is affectionately known to the locals, appears to them every day up to the present, (June 2013).
On the afternoon of 24th June 1981, two girls, Ivanka Ivankovic age 15, and Mirjana Dragicevic age 16, were returning home from a walk. Looking toward the hill called Crnica, Ivanka saw a bright silhouette of a woman. She said to Mirjana, "It is the Gospa!" (Our Lady).
On June 25, the two girls returned to the hill with four others. Their names are, Vicka Ivankovic age 16, Ivan Dragivevic age 16, Maria Pavlovic age 16 and Jakov Colo age 10.
A figure in white was calling them to come up the hill. The children were somehow transported in some mysterious way to a beautiful Lady who calls herself, the Queen of Peace.
The Lady gives messages to the seers for the whole world. To date The Queen of Peace has left thousands of messages. At first the messages were almost daily. Now for the past several years they come on the 25th of each month.
