The Church has been doing good. We are continuing with all the meetings during the week. In September we started to meet with some people in my village, and we are trying to start a Bible study there. We are praying that God would provide a place where we could meet there. God has really blessed our kids meeting in our Church here in Malisheve, we have a lot of kids coming. We do worship and share the gospel with them.

We have also visited a very poor family in the village of Qabiq, about 20 kilometers away. There is only the Mom and two Girls whose dad died in the war. The mom was very sick, we took her to the hospital and paid for her medication. We also prayed with her. They are not believers, and we pray that God will open their hearts to the Gospel.

In the middle of September I started to attend the Southeastern Europe Theological Seminary, which is a part of TMAI. I really like it. We are learning Greek, and reading a book and hermeneutics and also translating different passages of Scripture from Greek to Albanian.

At the end of September we sent three girls from our Church to a small Bible school in Albania, where they will spend time learning the Bible and focusing on their relationship with Christ. This is a 6 months long school, and they will be back in April to help in the Church.

We have also had some evangelistic opportunities that I want to mention. First, on Fridays from 5pm to 6pm, we have a prayer meeting. Then usually after we are finished with the meeting, some of us walk down to the park to share the Gospel with people. Usually in the evenings there is a lot of high school students in the park as they are waiting for the buses to get home. We have done this during September and October, and we had some good come from it. Now that the weather is cold, people do not hang around the park very much, so we don’t get out as often as we do during the warm months.

Also in the beginning of October I went to get a haircut, and as I was waiting there, another guy came, and he asked me what a do for a living. That started a conversation about the Gospel which lasted over half an hour. He seemed interested in the Gospel, and really liked the conversation that we had. We plan to meet with him again sometime.

Just recently I have had a good talk with my family about the Gospel. I live with my parents, my older brother and my younger sister. My sister seems to be more open to the Gospel, while the others dont want anything to do with it. My new job with Heartcry has started a lot of conversation with my family and others.

The village that I live in is 7km away from the town where our Church is located. And there is some young people in my village who have made a profession of faith in the past and have been in the church sometimes. But due to their jobs and family persecution, they can’t come to church. My desire is to meet with them in the village to read the Bible and pray together. I have done that with one person recently who says he wants to come to Church, but his dad wont allow him opportunities to talk to them about the Gospel. Although we have not seen any conversions, some have promised us that they would come to the church meetings, but they never showed up.
