Tour Giallo

One of our favourite parts of being members of Kisha Rilindja e Kosovës (Rebirth of Kosova Church) is that we get to meet people from all over the world who have the same desire and passion to see the church in Kosova grow as we do. Throughout the year we get requests as a church to host teams from other countries for conferences or outreach projects.

In August we hosted a team from Italy who were in Kosova for the first time as part of Tour Giallo, or “Yellow Tour”. The team were from a large church in Milan, Italy and many of them are students of the Church’s own Bible school. Tour Giallo is an evangelism project to reach people throughout Europe.

Celebration time

Dear friends. It’s been a very long summer for us, hence the reason we haven’t posted anything for several months. It’s back to school time for the children and youth but for us it’s just a case of carrying on as normal. We haven’t stopped for a break this summer which has been a little tiring, partly because of the 40ºC+ heat we have here in Kosova in the summer. Because it’s been so long, we’ll start with the most recent news first and update you on some other activities from the summer in the near future.

2017 is a special year for our church, Kisha Rilindja e Kosovës, as we celebrate 10 years since Pastor Jeton and Flora started the church. Continue reading “Celebration time”

When [we’re] cleaning windows

img_8420“Helen, you look like you’re on a mission trip, why are you taking photos of me cleaning windows?”. Ilir’s point was a good one. We have both had a lot of experience of mission teams who photograph literally everything they do, see (or eat) for the ‘report to church’ when they get home, and at times we have found ourselves doing roughly the same thing so that we have some ‘proof’ of what we’re doing for our prayer letters and blog Continue reading “When [we’re] cleaning windows”

Youth ministry doesn’t just happen in the church

Every now and again it’s good to take the church outside the building and spend time in fellowship somewhere different. The Youth Ministry is no exception and, because some of the boys were occupied with the inter-church football tournament the number of young people was diminished. Helen went with Drita (another church leader who is responsible for the Youth Ministry) and eight of the young people to the local shopping centre for an hour of bowling. Continue reading “Youth ministry doesn’t just happen in the church”

Couples’ Dinner

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.

OSCE conference

This week we were invited to go with our pastor, Jeton, to an OSCE conference in Peje. The OSCE is the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe and the conference was for members of all religious groups and representatives of municipalities (like the local council) to discuss how the different faith groups in each municipality can have their voices heard by local officials.

Patience

Over the last 2 or 3 months we have, as a church, been working through the Fruit of the Spirit as written about in Galatians:

“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.”

Galatians 5:22-23

A time of transition

It has been a whirlwind couple of weeks for Rebirth of Kosova Church. You may remember reading our post Rebirth of Kosova is moving! about how, due to the issues we were having with our old building, we had made the decision to move to a new building. We also appealed for your support to cover the increased cost of the rent at the new building and we would like to encourage you to pray and share our fundraising page so that we can raise the remainder of the funds we need https://crowdfunding.justgiving.com/rokrent Continue reading “A time of transition”

Answered Prayer

Thank you for praying for the situation with the stairs and balcony to enter the church. We have heard this morning that the municipality have granted us an extension to the deadline to remove the stairs and balcony while we find an alternative way to enter the church. Praise God!

Please continue to pray that we will find a solution to the issue before the new deadline and that it will not adversely affect attendance at the church or trade at King’s Cafe.
