Making Disciples

You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit—fruit that will last—and so that whatever you ask in my name the Father will give you. John 15:16

Kisha Kristiane Albania is working hard to create disciples who work in serving and changing lives for His Kingdom. We are blessed that God has given us this opportunity. We pray that we continue walk in Jesus' shoes. Here's the latest updates of what God is doing in the ministry. 

We had the privilege this past Sunday and Wednesday to ordain three brothers in Christ into the ministry of Deacon. They are true examples of what it means to serve others. They are very humble Godly men and it was an honor to ordain them into the ministry. We pray that God continues to use them and their families. People in the photo from left to right: Timothy (missionary in Albania), Denisi, Juli, Romi, and Arian. 

More exciting news this month is the baptism of Vathia and Davidi. I have introduced you to Vathia and her family before and asking for prayer for them to follow Christ and be baptized. Davidi is one of Juli's little brothers. It was a great priviledge for Juli to baptize his brother. It is such a blessing to have more brothers and sisters in Christ!

Update on Building: We are still in the process of raising funds for our new building. We have raised only about 10% so far. Please help! Even as little as $10 per month would help us out tremendously! Please pray that we will be able to raise the funds. If you would like to donate see the donate button via paypal or the donate address below to send a check. If you have any questions please email us.

Member Spotlight: Ana, Hekuran (3 mo.), and Toni (3yr.). This family has been on our hearts a lot lately. Ana gave birth to Hekuron two months early and he weighed a little over 3 pounds. Now Hekuran is 3 months old. Ana lives in the poor community of Kavaje where we serve the children. She has had a problem with breastfeeding and her milk didn't come in. She hasn't had the money to buy him formula because it is very expensive here. Instead of formula she feeds him watered down yogurt with sugar. Hekuran is growing but is still very small and weak. Now Ana's husband has left them as well. Ana is a baptized believer and we are praying for her and her family to be reunited and follow the Lord. Please pray for them and their situation.  

Praises/ Prayers:  

*We are still getting opposition with the director of the Old Home pray for his heart to be open to us.     
*Funding of a new Church home for us.    
*Pray that more people would open their hearts to help us serve and grow Albania for Christ.   
*Praise David celebrated one year on Tuesday!
We would love to hear from you! God bless!
