I’m currently in the Balkans with Brian Jose of Radstock. I’m here with three of our younger leaders, learning from Albanian church planters.
It’s a strange experience to stand outside a mosque, praying for a city with a population of over 80,000 people with no Christians and no missionaries.
Today we’re with a church planting team in another city with no Christians.
This is Macedonia where there are 650,000 ethnic Albanians among whom there are only five Christians.
Please pray for the Balkans. Twice yesterday two seperate Albanian church planters cited Matthew 9:36 as a key verse in their decision to leave their nation to reach the lost: “When [Jesus] saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd.”
If you know of anyone who would be interested in working with local Christians to reach the Balkans then please get in touch with Brian Jose. His email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
I’ll perhaps share more reflections and lessons in future posts.
