It has been almost 2 years since the first talking started to bring Christianity Explored in to Albanian Language! Many moments of dreaming, challenges but also nearly 2 years of praying! It is a moment of Thankfulness towards GOD and our partners! Thank you to the CE offices and staff for every moment of support , patients and great communication ! Thank you Adopt-A-Child UK . Thank you to Mensenkinderen. Thank you to Transform Europe Network. Thank you to all the Trustees and Individuals that came behind all of us. God knows your names!

To Pray for!
- Pray for those that have accepted Christ that they will continue to follow Jesus and spread the Good News!
- Pray for those churches that have received the materials that they will use them and harvest for the Kingdom!
- Pray that more churches will start to use the materials!
- Pray that we might have also Discipleship Explored as a second step in the first weeks of people discovering the Good News, that they might be further strengthened in the gospel!
Leaders are the key people for the starting and the ongoing of the courses! But also their feedback is very important !
-Pastor Keidis from the Eagle church in Tirana said that the course in general was a success and that it helped confront non-believers with the gospel and Who Jesus Is, but also it helped the believers to be more prepared on sharing the good news!
-Pastor Erion from Word of Life Church in Lushnja, said that it is the perfect material to introduce a destination in life to many that come with no hope, no dreams and that feel all alone It brings them to the new life in a very clear way!
-Pastor Kristian Kotorri from Elbasan said that I have never been able to share the Good News so clear to so many people in a short time! I have never seen so many people accepting Jesus being 100% sure of their decision in such a short time! Thanks to the courses I can start planning the start of a new church in the Cerrik area!
