Partnership is very much a key part of all that we are doing in Albania these days, working with other Christian groups to bring as much blessing as we can to the children and families God has given us to care for.
Adopt-A-Child UK, through its Irish Coordinator, Scott Ballantine, has forged a new partnership with Team Hope (www.teamhope.ie) an Irish ministry which sends 260,000 plus Christmas Shoeboxes all over the world.
Between 40 and 50,000 shoeboxes go into Albania & Kosovo each Christmas. Team Hope has agreed to supply over 1,000 shoeboxes to Living Water Adopt A Child in Albania, to bless over 1,000 children attending our 4 Albanian programmes in Rodokal, Homezh, Katjel & Kotodesh, plus new villages where our ministry has now established Gospel outreaches.
In return Scott has agreed to encourage Adopt-A-Child supporting churches in Ireland to get involved in filling shoeboxes for Team Hope. He will also approach primary schools to try and get them involved with the project.
Christmas may be a LONG way away, but what a blessing to be able to work together to spread the love of Jesus in Albania for Christmas 2018 and beyond!
