There is a vacuum regarding what can be done to impact the Albanians with the good news of Jesus Christ. The most important project is starting new churches as the most effective way to reach groups and make disciples. Currently, we are in process of establishing the Albanian Church in Toronto and preparing for work at other areas in Ontario.
On the other side, we are aware that we are working with a community that not only doesn’t have a Christian background but has received bad advertising about the church and those who are representing it. There are many who never heard the real Gospel and will not listen to it until it comes from a credible source.
We are looking for practical ways to be credible with strangers and to bless them. We have done some assessment on the current needs regarding the Albanian community. We are working towards these projects that will bring God’s kingdom at each need:
- Project 000 CWS
Christian Workers Sponsorships. In certain countries, one dollar has more impact than in others, netherless our workers need support to continue serving without the need to do a side job. When a full-support is not yet reached some of our workers will do part-time and seasonal jobs to have their needs met. Can you consider sponsoring one of them?
- Project 001GSA.
God Speaks Albanian website. This site offers materials in Albanian aiming the Agnostics and Atheists who are participating in a “make sense” conversation. Additionally, we are working on information that will help those who see themselves as part of other faith expressions to test what they believe.Children Outreach.

Welcome in Canada. As new families and individuals come with hopes in the new land, we are welcoming them offering information, encouragement and prayers.
