|Marsida and her family|
We are also very excited to tell you about another family. We have told you about Marsida in the past. She was so excited when she received her first bible and she reads it to her family. Marsida has been a delight to us with her enthusiasm to learn about God. She has been coming to Kids Club for many years. This week we were very excited when Marsida and her family showed up to the church in Kavaje. Marsida's mom seemed very interested in continuing to come to church. We pray that they continue to come and learn more about Christ.

We also have a big change to tell you about in the ministry. After much prayer and discussion with our leadership board in America, our clinic is being reduced. The final decision was to keep Dr. Nikolla as our main doctor to continue the work of the clinic. After this summer Dr. Vangjeli and our nurse Zenel will be retiring. For the past several years there has been a greater focus on the church and less growth of the clinic. This is a very hard change for all especially since Dr. Vangjeli and Zenel have been with the ministry since it started 14 years ago. We know that Dr. Vangjeli and Zenel will continue to be a great help in the church. Please pray for them during this transition.
News from Stefanie: Things are going great here in the States. I am excited to be spending time with my family, friends, and brothers and sisters in Christ even though I am anxiously awaiting Arian's arrival May 13th! I have been able to visit with McDonough Christian and Hickory Valley Christian church so far. I hope to visit more churches soon. I went to the doctor this week and all is going well with baby David but they want to keep a close eye on him and I will have doctor's visits 2x per week. We want baby David to stay in as long as possible to make sure he is fully developed.
I was also blessed with a nice turtle themed baby shower for David from my close friends in Atlanta. Please continue to pray for strength and patience for Arian, Baby David and I.
* Continue to pray for Mara and Klara. Mara was back in Albania last week and they are still waiting for treatment for Klara in Italy.
* Continue to pray for a new building for the church in Durres.
* Pray for the staff and the changes coming.
* Pray for Arian as he travels to the states to join Stefanie, May 13th.
We would love to hear from you! God bless!
