Emily McCoppin


I’m excited to let you know about a trip I’ll be taking to Albania this summer for the 4th year in a row! It all started after I met some friends who had been going for many years. After hearing about the heart behind why they went, I joined a team at Watermark Church who through partnership with CRU (Campus Crusade for Christ) will be traveling to Albania on a Short-Term Discipleship Trip.  Our trip will be from July 6th - July 15th.

Why go again?

In the last three years I have had the privilege to partner with the staff and High School students in Albania. I have built great friendships with the Albanians there and each time I’ve went I’ve grown more and more. And this year I get to work with the Young Professionals ministry. I know there will be growth and God will do mighty things! I am excited I get to be a part of that story! I know God has his hand in every bit of what we're doing, so this year will be no different!

Why Albania?

This year (2019) marks the 28th anniversary of the fall of Communism and the 20th anniversary of the end of war in neighboring Kosovo, which included the deportation of 800,000 Albanians and the mass genocide of Kosovo Albanians.  Today, there is still a need for spiritual healing in Albania.

In partnership with Cru, we will be helping run summer camps for high school students in Tirana, Elbasan, and Korce. We will have the opportunity to play games, do team building activities, build friendships, have conversations over coffee, and share the Gospel of Jesus Christ. In addition to that, we will be serving the recently formed Albanian Young Professionals Group and building into the future leaders and young adults of Tirana, not to mention sharing with them our ultimate hope in the Gospel.  As some of you may know, serving with and supporting missions is never far from my heart, and so this is another opportunity to share Jesus Christ, equip and build disciples, and absolutely to encourage the local body!
