Andrea grew up in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, and graduated from the University of Calgary and the University of Alberta with degrees in Kinesiology and Secondary Education. She has been working in Ersekë, Albania for the past 2 years as a Resident Assistant and Summer Camp staff at Udhëkryq (“Crossroads”) Torchbearers Center.
Andrea became connected with Alongside Ministries through her work with Alongsiders (Mark and Ruthie Stoscher and Doni and Gail Lilo) at the Udhëkryq Center in Ersekë. She is enthusiastic about her work with AMI as she continues her role as Resident Assistant and Summer Camping Equipment coordinator. Andrea sometimes blogs at andreainalbania.wordpress.com.
A personal note from Andrea:
I am pleased about my work with Alongside Ministries because…
- I have felt God calling me to accountability and growth through AMI.
- I really enjoy the other Alongside staff and leaders in this community and the others I have met. They demonstrate the power of Christ and His love everyday and are amazing teachers and examples to me.
- This provides financial support for me as I stretch myself in this community and share the love of Christ with the people of Ersekë and Albania.
I know how Christ is using these callings as I am…
- Called to live in intentional community where we read Scripture, pray together, make food for others, and share Christ through sports and outdoor activities.
- Able and pleased to mentor young women.
- Growing in these areas and am seeking to build God’s kingdom.
- Grateful for the ways that God is solidifying these priorities in my heart and how I can share Christ’s love with others.
