I am so excited to be part of a team going to Albania for a missions trip this summer. I will be joining a group of young adults from Watermark Community Church, through a partnership with Cru, who are traveling to Albania (in Eastern Europe) on a Short-Term Discipleship Trip to minister to high school students.  The trip is June 29 to July 16.

The Lord has called me to be a part of this trip as I have learned recently that my faith will grow if I put myself in uncomfortable positions. I know that putting myself outside my comfort zone causes me to rely wholly on God for strength and endurance. In doing so, I have learned that I can't do this life on my own, and I experience true freedom as I rely fully on God. Another reason I want to go on this trip is to use my time well this summer. Being a teacher, I see having my summers off as an opportunity to invest more in serving God and His Kingdom and I believe this mission trip is an excellent opportunity to do just that. Looking forward to seeing how God will move during this trip!

This year marks the 27th anniversary of the fall of Communism and the 18th 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 the Gospel in Albania.  In partnership with Cru, we will be helping run summer camps for high school students in Tirana 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.
