We wrote about the house ministry in Vraniq back in April and it is still very much part of what we do each week. On Saturday mornings we go for 1-2 hours and spend time in the homes of the Roma families who live in Vraniq. Our time is spent singing worship songs, which the younger kids really love, sharing a story, psalm or reflection from the Bible and then spending time teaching English and Albanian reading and writing, and having a time of fellowship.
For about 3 months we have been going with Drita to Vraniq, a village about 6 miles (10 km) from Gjakovë. The purpose for these visits is to teach English, help with homework and evangelise to the families that live there. Continue reading “House Ministry in Vraniq”

On 20th September we held the first of our monthly couples’ dinners at the church. Everyone brought either a main course or a dessert to share and we had a really good time of fellowship with one another. This dinner came about one month after the couples’ retreat in Rugove that everyone had enjoyed so much and after the meal we spent some time talking about whether the retreat had been beneficial for our marriages and anything that we had taken from the retreat and applied to our lives since.
The couples’ dinners will be held on the 3rd Tuesday evening of each month at the church.
This week marks “back to school” and therefore the end of summer (or at least that’s how kids all over Europe see it!) so we thought it was finally time to write about how we spent this summer serving the Lord with RoK. Continue reading “Food, and more…”
For over a year now our church, Kisha Rilindja e Kosoves (Rebirth of Kosova Church), has been linked with a World Challenge project called Please Pass the Bread which provides funding for feeding programmes worldwide. The way we are involved in this is to go and buy food parcels and then distribute them to families in Gjakovë and surrounding villages. Continue reading “Food Distribution”
