Getting back into the swing of things

Most of you are starting back to school or have children going back to school. Have you ever noticed that once you are out of the habit of doing something it is hard to get back into the swing of things? Getting up early to get the kids off to school, quitting smoking, and starting exercising are just a few of the things that come to mind. But on a spiritual note, reading the Bible and praying can be a very big challenge if you are out of the practice of doing it every day. Once you get back into the habit it becomes a normal part of your everyday life. You feel out of place if you don't do it. Don't forget to  pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people (Ephesians 6:18). Any good habit is worth starting and continuing! Today is a great day to start!

Now that we are back to Albania we are trying to establish many new routines. Some of those are trying to get David adjusted to the time, culture, heat, and people differences that make Albania unique. We have discovered that many people like to give lots of advice about how to care for your baby, some of which are very bizarre! We are trying to do what is best for our blended family. We above all else listen to the advice and direction that God is leading us. Please pray for us during this transition time. 

We are getting back into the swing of things with ministry as well. There will be much to update you on and many pictures to come in the next blog. We appreciate your patience. 

Member Spotlight
Ana: Ana is 18 years old and has the brightest smile in all of Albania. She is paralyzed and can not eat without help. Ana recently learned one word "AMEN". This week when Arian was preaching she was constantly shouting Amen! We Thank God for Ana! When she was younger her mother, Drita was trying to get help for her.  They found a handicapped school for Ana. Drita and Ana started attending this Christian school even though they were muslim. They started hearing the word of God. Because of Ana, now Drita, her father, and sister are now believers of our Lord Jesus Christ! Praise God how He works through children. We love Ana coming to worship with us in Kavaje she loves to dance while we sing and shout AMEN! 

Praises/ Prayers: 
* David is growing and healthy! 

* Pray for continual growth at the church especially the youth. 

We would love to hear from you! God bless!
