Today we had an outreach event we want to share with you and ask for your prayers. Today is women’s day in Albania, kind of like Mother’s Day in America, and we had a women’s outreach event at our church. It started with a guest preacher and then we had a women’s event after the service. We asked the women of our church to invite women they knew that need to hear the gospel and from the 20 church women that came we had 10 new guests.
At the event the women made candles, heard the testimony of one of our dear sisters in Christ, and then the men leaders of our church served the women lunch and dessert. While we know that it is the Gospel that changes lives, we hope that the testimony of Erjola (amazing testimony of faith) and the example of service by our men will also be a testimony to the worth of Christ. It’s funny to our American minds but the men serving the women in this culture is quite the big deal. Some of the women in our church didn’t even believe it would happen when we announced it the week before.
Please pray with us for the 10 women that heard the testimony of Erjola today. Please pray for us and our women as we follow up with them. Our desire is to see all of them come to be disciples of our Lord Jesus Christ.
May the Lord be with you as pray, be with our girls as they continue to share their faith with these 10 women, and with the 10 women as they think of the call of our Lord on their lives.
