Jerry and Zuzanna are the founders of International Strategies for Transformation (IST), and they reside in Zagreb, Croatia. They met in the former Yugoslavia, where Jerry was then serving as a missionary, and they were married in Serbia, soon after. Due to rising political tensions in the region, they moved to the United States in 1998. For years, the Lows participated in mission trips to different parts of the world, but they never lost their love for the Balkan States, which he maintained for several years. In 2002, they partnered with European Initiative (EL) to organize a humanitarian aid trip to Romania, and in 2013, Jerry and Zuzanna moved to Zagreb, Croatia, where they pioneered the EL, Balkans base, and Intentional Strategy for Transformation. The vision of ITS is to help alleviate spiritual, physical, and emotional poverty in the Balkans, and this vision is realized through three pillars: prayer, discipleship, and humanitarian relief.
