Six Teams, Five Cities, Three Countries, Three Ministries...
I’m returning to Albania for the 5th summer in a row and also headed to Hungary! For me, it started in 2014 with 10 people from Watermark Church. We went to Tirana, Albania and shared the Gospel with high school students. God has done incredible things in the years between 2014 and 2018.
This summer 2018, we have 39 people (pictured above) going and have expanded our ministries to countries outside of Albania—Poland and Hungary! We have 6 teams, going to 5 cities, 3 countries, doing 3 distinct ministries, for one mission, the Gospel of Jesus Christ! In 2017, I took on the role of Director in our Dallas-Eastern European partnership. This looks like leading the team to Korçë, Albania from July 7-14, then to Pécs, Hungary from July 14-22. Now through July, we’ll be training and discipling this team of 39. I’ll be providing leadership, direction, and equipping to other leaders and the overall team. Acts 13:47 says, “I have made you a light for the Gentiles, that you may bring salvation to the ends of the earth.”
On a personal note, I want to share a current favorite verse of mine: “However, I consider my life worth nothing to me; my only aim is to finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me—the task of testifying to the good news of God’s grace” (Acts 20:24). This has meant much to me. Life isn’t always easy, but I am reminded to “press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus” (Phil 3:14). No matter what we’re doing, if we are not living as lights in this world (Matt 5:14), then what are we doing? And this is why we are on mission, here locally and to the ends of the earth! I am deeply convicted and PUMPED by this, desire to walk in faithfulness and zeal, and hope this is an encouragement to you as well!
How to Partner with Me
Please pray for those in Albania, Poland, and Hungary who will hear the Gospel through the 39 of us this summer! Pray for our team, the leaders and participants! Also, financial support is a huge blessing. If you’re able and cheerfully willing, I would love for you to partner with me this way! For me to go 2 weeks to Albania and Hungary, the cost is $3500. I need to raise $1700 by Sunday, May 11th. The remaining needs to be raised by June 29th. You can donate online right here!
Please let me know if you have any questions at all. Thank you for your partnership for the Gospel. I am so grateful for you!
