The Lord is opening some exciting doors as we seek to faithfully pursue our ministry vision of seeing the Gospel 1) flourish in Albania and 2) take root among the Albanians living in Macedonia. We are therefore now engaged in two distinct but related ministries: 1) discipleship and evangelism in and through our local church in Albania, and 2) holistic discipleship in the marketplace through an international development organization in both Albania and Macedonia.
- Pray for our local church. Meredith continues to spearhead our church's neighborhood children's outreach. This year she is particularly focused on improving the quality of the outreach and training up one of the women in our church to ultimately take over leadership of the ministry. Jeff continues to preach periodically, invest in discipling relationships, and encourage and assist our pastor. Pray for effectiveness, cultural understanding, and boldness.
- Pray for our ministry with the Christian development organization with whom we've recently joined forces. The ultimate vision of this organization is to see the church in the Balkans impacting all segments of society through disciples living out an integrated faith. Pray as Jeff works on opening this organization's Albania office and starts implementing projects. Partnering with this organization allows Jeff to leverage his professional skill set as a corporate lawyer to uniquely access segments of society that the local church in Albania is not adequately reaching. Further pray as we seek to use this organization as a means to see the Gospel spread among the Albanians in Macedonia, a people group that is virtually unreached.
- Pray for our three children's health, spiritual development, and safety as well as good communication in our marriage.
May you be strengthened with all power, according to his glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy, giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in light. - Col 1:11-12
