We have a new mission trip opportunity on our 2021 schedule! As you may know in the last 2 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.
October 11-21, 2021, we will embark on our groundbreaking 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.
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.
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!
Please let us know if God is calling you on this mission as we have a limited number of spots on this team. I am praying that the Lord hand selects individuals to fulfill this historic and groundbreaking mission!
