A team of seven from the US completed two weeks of vital ministry alongside Albanian leadership in the Evangelical Church of Bilishti, Albania. The team included…
–Brandon, a computer technician in Silicon Valley and member PBPC Park Boulevard Presbyterian, Oakland, California, who gave superb leadership in the high school outreaches.
–Ashlie, a college freshman at Lake Washington Institute of Technology in Seattle and member at Redmond Assembly of God, served in the children’s and youth ministry/outreach.
–Fiona, a college freshmen from Florida who completed a year at the Torchbearer’s Bible School in Ersekë, Albania, teamed up with others to lead a terrific children’s ministry.
–Glen, a businessman and house church leader from Asheville, NC., assisted with youth activities; prayer, healing, and prophetic ministry.
–George, an Interim/Transitional pastor from the Seattle, Washington area, preached in Sunday worship; and provided direction for leadership development in the local church. He joined his wife, Margie, in leading a “Healthy Marriage” seminar for couples.
–Margie, who with her husband has been leading teams to Albania for 19 years, gave administrative direction and leadership to the children’s and women’s ministries.
–Dave Pierson, Executive Director for Alongside Ministry, joined American and Albanian leadership for youth ministry, preaching, morning Bible teaching, prayer and healing ministries.
Our joy was that during the past two weeks many Albanians came to faith in Christ, sought to be Jesus’ disciples and received personal/spiritual healing.
