Branislav Jaksic almost didn't make it into this world, and when he
did arrive, his alcoholic father disowned him and his uncle said he
was "ugly." Born in communist Yugoslavia in 1938, Branislav had a
rough start in life. But life didn't get any easier as he grew
older. War, food shortages, an abusive father, and religious
persecution were part of Branislav's life. Despite the turmoil
around him, his mother's unshakable faith and trust in God and His
divine plan for Branislav's life gave him hope. Upon becoming a
Sabbathkeeper, Branislav faced an uncertain future, especially in
light of the mandatory service he was required to complete in the
Yugoslavian army. What was he to do? He could not join as a
noncombatant. He could not request Sabbaths off. Other young
Sabbathkeepers who refused to do as the military demanded were
imprisoned, beaten, tortured, and starved. He had heard the
stories. The only option was to leave the country. But how? Could
he escape across the border into Italy and apply to the Italian
authorities for protection? Could he leave his beloved mother and
family, not knowing if he would ever see them again? The Vacant
Seat will thrill you as you read about God's protection and His
divine plan for one of His servants-Branislav Jaksic-a man who
trusts in the Lord and has devoted his life to serving his Savior.
