APRIL 18-MAY 2, 2023
Border Status: (Open, Vaccine Not Required)
The last 3 years the Lord has started opening doors for WMA in the Balkan region with us first being able to travel to and minister in Serbia, then later in North Macedonia as well. Once again it has been confirmed that He desires us to reach the nations of this particular part of the world as the door has now opened up for us to begin working in Albania.
Albania was first a catholic country due to the Roman’s invasion, but in the 15th century after the Ottoman invasion it became Muslim. Since it shares a border in the south with Greece, many inhabitants of these areas are orthodox. From the end of the 1960s practicing a religion was forbidden by the communist regime. It was after the fall of this regime that the Albanians started to practice religion again.
Today the evangelical church in Albania is just 0.5% of the population. Many people have not heard of Jesus and the church needs help to spread the Good News.
Spring 2023 we will embark on our next mission to Albania and I’m so excited to see who God calls to go with us! We will work in the capital of Albania, Tirana, and the surrounding areas. Our main partner, Pastor Hervin, was born to a Muslim family and committed his life to Christ at age 17. The church has a Bible school where our team is invited to teach. People are hungry for the Gospel but there are very few workers in Albania who are trained in the Bible.
Through medical missions, orphanage support and partnership with local churches we have an unprecedented opportunity to safely share the love of Christ in Albania this October!
These are the ministry opportunities you will have.
- Orphan ministry
- Bible teaching
- Medical missions
- Bible Distribution
- Gypsy community outreach
We will also be including our very first mission into Greece on this trip. More info about that to come!
Please let us know if God is calling you on this mission as we have a limited number of spots on this team. We are praying that the Lord hand selects the individuals He desires to help fulfill this historic and groundbreaking mission!
We have many evangelistic opportunities including medical clinic outreach, which we need a good number of medical professionals for. We will be distributing Bibles, providing food for, and ministering to 400 orphaned kids and many underprivileged families in the Gypsy communities.
Join us in fulfilling the Great Commission through giving!!
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING…
Serving on the mission field with Chuck and Helen Todd is a life-changing experience. Their heart is to be an extension of God's hands assisting pastors in other countries reaching out to their congregation, community, rehab centers and whatever is needed. They are a tremendous blessing to many. - Becky Durr
I have traveled with other missions, but the personal relationship between the leaders (Helen and Chuck Todd) and those of us on the team, (who can come from various backgrounds and countries from around the world) fosters unity in the Spirit of God. It truly becomes family (in Christ) when you go on the mission field with WMA. I am so grateful that Jesus pointed me to travel with WMA! -- and more importantly, that WMA always points everyone, and all they do, to Jesus!
- Laurie Ball-Gisch
I have traveled with WMA since September 2011. They are very organized, but are open to the move of the Holy Spirit. It is apparent that the mission of WMA is the "Great Commission". I am so thankful that I was led to WMA when I felt a call to go into overseas missions. I am a retired law enforcement officer and as a result I am naturally suspicious of organizations I am not familiar with. My research online resulted in only positive reviews. I praise God for this wonderful ministry!
I could say that they were well organized, provided excellent accommodations, fed us well, and looked after our safety. And all that would be true, but their heart for serving the Lord and lifting the name of Jesus is what impressed me the most. My time and money are in short supply, but neither were wasted during the mission trip to Macedonia. If you love Jesus and feel called to go tell others of His love for them, then World Missions Alliance is the horse you want to tie your cart to.
"Amazing trip. It was a wide-open door of opportunity as Paul would say. Fantastic organization behind the scenes by Chuck & Helen. Lots of prayer went into this before and during, done with high integrity. This is a mature ministry, making a significant impact. Done with a Christ-like demeanor.
No words can describe the blessing that I received...Can not wait to go again!!!

"During these small moments of this time in Israel as I was able to see His Beloved land and precious people and I was given a new texture in my walk. It seems as though now as I read the Word and pray there is another dimension a tangible component that was not there before. I can actually touch them in my heart."
The day I came home from Ireland was the day the Lord told me I was going to Lebanon! So far it has been my favorite trip. He told me it was an act of obedience and if I went He would take care of my daughter. Great blessings were given during this trip and a greater blessing when I got home! It was very overwhelming to know that God used us to answer many prayers for families both in Lebanon and at home.

This mission trip (Thailand) was such a blessing to me. I most enjoy working with WMA teams and the leadership of Helen and Chuck. They help bring unity to our diverse ministries and make the missions successful!
- Helen Myers
Had a great time of ministry in China with WMA. If you are looking for a ministry opportunity, join with WMA! It is exciting to be a part of what God is doing around the world.
- Dale Combs
I had to travel across the world to see I had not been alone in my thoughts and questions. God used WMA to accomplish His twofold mission.
- Kressa Phillips
I'm blessed to have been making mission trips with Chuck and Helen since 1994. They have been an excellent tool in our missions' call to the nations.
- Gwen Reed
I have been on other mission trips with my church. But I knew God wanted me to go on this trip. It has forever changed me. It increased my desire for missions and to spread the Light of Christ. It's awesome what WMA is doing. I was taken out of my comfort zone, I'm so glad I was obedient to what God was calling me to do.
- Cynthia Altman
A few months ago I went to Thailand, that mission trip changed my entire life. It changed how I viewed God, it changed how I viewed myself. Before going on that mission trip I doubted what God had for me, he showed me things that warmed my heart, he showed me that pain can be healed with love from the simplest things.
