Jesus is coming are you ready?

Arian and I were honored to be able to attend a conference this month in Leece, Italy held by our brother in Christ Pino Neglia.  The title of the conference was Christ is coming. We broke into small groups and discussed were we ready for Christ's return. I have always thought that since I was a Christian I was ready but in the past couple of years since marrying Arian, I have decided that I am not ready for Christ's return. Here's the reason why. Doing mission work here in Albania I see lots of people who need God's salvation. One big thing on my heart is Arian's parents who are not saved. We try our best to show and tell them about the love of Christ and we pray that one day that they will believe in Jesus. Personally I am ready for Christ's return but there is a lot of work here to do. I pray that the people of Albania would one day cry out to God. 
At the conference on Sunday morning we got to sing "Light of the world" in Albanian with another couple Mondi Gjoni and his wife Fjoralba. We were in Italy singing in Albanian only God understood us but it was a pleasure to sing! 

Kids club in Kavaje is going well. We have seen more children coming and they are very attentive for the bible lesson and memory verse. We have been meeting outside for the past two months. We currently don't have a place to meet. The room we were meeting in during the winter, the owner decided he didn't want us there anymore. Now we are meeting outside with no shade and it is HOT! Please pray that we find a room to use soon. Here is a picture of this weeks kids club. 

Update on Building: We are still in the process of raising funds for our new building. We have raised $5,000! Yea Go God! We still have a long way to go to meet our goal of $50,000. 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: Artur is our newest member of the church in Kavaje. He is 46 years old and engaged to marry Lume another member of our church who is blind. Lume also 46, has been praying for a husband for a long time. Artur is from Berat a city about two hours from Kavaje. He is a registered physical therapist and is looking for a job in Kavaje. He loves Lume very much and is helping her take care of her sick dad now. He has been asking Arian many questions about faith. He has also been attending men's Bible Study in Kavaje. He is very excited to learn as much as he can about our Lord. We pray for Artur and that he will be baptized soon! 
Here is a picture from one of our youth outings. They went to the 6D cinema in Durres. Please pray for the Spiritual growth of our youth. The world is a big temptation for the youth!
