Albanian Church Service in Philadelphia

From ministry reports of the Albanian immigrant gospel team in Philadelphia USA:

February 15th: "This Sunday, February 20th, will be a pretty exciting day for us. After a few years of praying, planning, lots of relationships and lots of activity we will be launching weekly worship services in Albanian. Frankly it is hard to believe. Three years ago we would have laughed at the thought. Often it was just my ministry partner and I and a handful of Albanians. At times it was just the two of us forced to pray as no one showed up."

March 7th: "Our last two services have gone well. We are getting around 30 coming each week and we are encouraged. They are inviting friends and beginning to develop a commitment to coming each week, an idea totally foreign to them before. Thank you for your prayers and support. We are thankful to God for the opportunity to herald the good news to this community. We are even more thankful that He will build His church."
