Wow! Today was the last day and Camp 2 is done. We went out with a bang as we ended with a program featuring each of the five classes doing dramas. The students are quite the actors, and their dramas were a wonderful demonstration of their English language skills and the seeds of faith that have been planted this week. You can watch the highlights from this week in the camp video, below!
Like last week, some parents and other family members attended the closing program at Alpha and Omega Church, some for the first time. Our prayer is that Gospel seeds were planted. They certainly know that the church is here, that they are invited, and that Pastor Ermal, "one of their own," is a very welcoming and friendly man.
All in all, the feedback that we’ve already received indicates that the two one-week English language camps here in Peshkopi, Albania, were a good catalyst for the Christian ministry that already exists here, and that was our goal. Thanks be to God!
Saturday will be a day off, and then we will journey back to Tirana on Sunday after worship. Early on Monday we will all travel to distant parts – some directly home and others to various destinations before returning home.
Thanks for your interest in this blog and ministry, and thanks to our senders for sending us and for your prayers!
