Carrie Beckner


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 ethnic Albanians and the mass genocide of Kosovo Albanians. 

Today, there is still a great need for spiritual healing and an awareness of the Gospel in Albania.  In partnership with Cru, we will be helping run summer camps for high school students in Tirana, Elbasan, and Korce, Albania and Hungary. We'll also have a team returning to Poland for the second year to continue training up leaders in a biblical 12-step recovery program. In particular, my team of 7 will be in Tirana, Albania from July 5th to July 14th ministering to young professionals like me. We will help put on a few professional conferences which include a gospel presentation, and we will engage in discipleship and encouragement of Albania believers at a weekend conference where we'll conduct a few of the workshops. 

Will you please pray for all of our team members and the friends we will meet abroad?

May God be glorified through this marvelous opportunity!
