Friday Finale – Albania
July 14, 2023
by team co-lead, Phil Lee
Amazing! Today is already the last day of our two one-week English Language Camps in Peshkopi, Albania – one camp in town and one in the nearby village of Kastriot. We’ve been focused on the theme of the power of God to heal, using various Biblical stories of healing to teach English and bring good news of living hope to these precious children. Today was our final program and the parents were invited – an amazing melting pot of Muslim, Christian, and agnostic adults and children. And here we are as ambassadors for Christ. What a privilege…and joy!
