Each year every one of our registered children in Guatemala and Albania, whether sponsored or not, get a Christmas present from our ministry.
It has been almost 2 years since the first talking started to bring Christianity Explored in to Albanian Language!
In May this year, the Christianity Explored course, translated into the Albanian language, was launched in Tirana, the capital of Albania.
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.
Over the past year or so, AACUK Area Coordinator for Ireland, Scott Ballantine, has been involved in a partnership between Adopt-A-Child and Christianity Explored Ministries to have the Christianity Explored course translated into Albanian for use in churches throughout that country.

Years ago, while students in the university, we both came face to face with the fact that we were guilty and lost. Thanks to some very special people, we learned of God’s love and forgiveness through Jesus Christ. After praying for some time for believers in Eastern Europe, we were privileged to join with Ron and Pat Kelly and many others to start the Adopt-A-Child feeding program in Albania. We lived in Pogradec, Albania for a year and a half, returning home to the US when the Albanian government collapsed in 1997. Since then we have lived in the US, raising four amazing children. Recently we have had the pleasure of spending time in Albania again, working with an awesome team of believers there, to continue sharing the Good News of Jesus with both children and adults there.
