Back in June we wrote about a national campaign to clean up Kosova (Please see Ta Pastrojmë Kosovën – Clean Up Kosova) when we spent a day clearing rubbish from Brekoc, a village we often support with food parcels (Please see Food, and more…). Today, as part of the Youth Ministry of our Church, Rebirth of Kosova, we worked with the Youth to clean up Gjakovë. Continue reading “Ta Pastrojmë Gjakovën – Clean Up Gjakova”
The Easter weekend was a busy one for us as we, like most churches, had extra services to prepare for, and in the run up to Easter Helen was also given the opportunity to be creative and design the publicity for the joint service on Sunday afternoon at the Cultural Palace in the centre of town.

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.
We’d like to share with you an urgent prayer request regarding our church here.
Last week we had a visit from the municipality inspectors who told us that the stairs and balcony that serve as our entrance to the church and cafe are illegally built and we have until tomorrow to take them down.
These stairs are the only way we can get into our building at the moment (we are on the first floor above some shops) and if these stairs are removed we will have to find another way in or find another place for the church.
Our Pastor, Jeton, is meeting with municipality officials and the landlord today to request an alternative course of action.
What to pray:
1. For God’s favour in the meeting today.
2. To find a way to legalize the stairs and the balcony or special permission to use them from the municipality
3. Favor with the inspectors/officials so we could have a longer deadline before removing the steps.
