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”
For two days at the end of August we for a Couples’ Retreat up in the mountains in Rugovë, which is just West of the city of Peja and very close to the border with Montenegro. We were just one of seven couples from our church, Rebirth of Kosova, that made the two hour journey to this stunning location for the retreat.
Our time was spent in worship and fellowship with the other couples and discussing the importance of marriage from a Christian perspective.
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”
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.
We were involved in running a Youth Camp this summer for all the youth that attend meetings and groups at the church. This video gives an overview of the activities.
