Encouraging Kristian – Dave

Acts 2:47 praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to their number day by day those who were being saved.

Our week here in Albania is drawing to a close and we are grateful for God’s provision and growing each of us.

Today was a second day with Kristian Kotorri. He shared more with us (see yesterday’s blog) about his approach to church planting in the area. We all agree that his work is honoring God’s call on us to make disciples and grow His church.

We had many conversations today with Kristian. Both to encourage and then times for prayer. The day was centered on this exchange and for the team to get a chance to explore Via and eastern Albania to lake Orhid on the Macedonia border.


We were able to walk a Roman bridge about 15 km past Elbasan and then we went to lake Orhid. Along the way we shared in the local atmosphere and took time to pray that more would hear the gospel and turn to the Lord.

Tomorrow are services at Sukth and Durres. In between we will see the Rushiti family.

Please pray for leaders to be developed in the region for discipleship and leading.
That the Rushitis completely recover from there viruses and that the teams return is smooth to Chicago.


One response to “Encouraging Kristian – Dave

  1. Dave, it is so wonderful that you were able to spend time with Kristian! Great hope for the Balkan world thru Christ’s church there.
    Please greet the Rushiti family for me.
    Be safe coming home.
    1 Thessalonians 1:8
    For not only has the word of the Lord sounded forth from you in Macedonia and Achaia, but your faith in God has gone forth everywhere, so that we need not say anything.
