Growing, Growing, Growing!!!

March is here! Now in Albania the winter is coming to an end. The rain has stopped and it is getting warmer. Birds are singing and flowers are growing. This warmer weather and growth makes me excited to see what is going to happen next. We pray that you are also growing in your faith and walk with God.  We ought always to thank God for you, brothers and sisters, and rightly so, because your faith is growing more and more, and the love all of you have for one another is increasing. 2 Thessalonians 1:3.

We are very happy to announce the growth that has been going on here in Albania. The church in Durres is growing with new people every week. We have had to add more chairs and find more space because there hasn't been enough room for all the people who are coming on Sunday. This is a fantastic problem to have and we are excited for the challenge. We are also praying for God to help us find a building where we can have more space.

The church in Kavaje is growing as well. We had another new family this week. If everyone was in attendance we would have over 30 coming to church. Since we have moved into a building it has given us more room to grow

Not only are we experiencing physical growth but also spiritual growth! We have been praying for people to get serious in their faith and to grow in the Lord. We are having a baptism service on March 24th for both churches. There has been a growing interest in baptism so Arian started a class for non believers. Hopefully on the 24th we will have 5 or maybe more people being baptized in the sea! Praise God for this growth!

28 weeks
Our family is growing as well. Stefanie went to the doctor today and got very good news from the Doctor. David Samuel is now 1.4 kg or about 3 lbs. According to the ultrasound baby looks good and all is well. The doctor signed a release for Stefanie to travel to the States to have the baby. Stefanie will be coming April 2nd and David is due at the end of May. Arian will be joining Stefanie later in May. We are very excited that all is going well for her pregnancy. Please continue to pray for Stefanie and baby David and their travel. Stefanie will be visiting Atlanta, but mainly be staying in Dalton, Georgia where her parents live. She hopes to see most of you all soon!

 Praises/ Prayers: 
* Pray for us to find a larger space for the church in Durres.
* Pray for continual spiritual growth in the church.

* Pray for Stefanie and baby David. 

We would love to hear from you! God bless!
