One last email from Albania. We had a blast with the children both on Friday at our final English club and on Saturday at our last Bible Club. On Friday we filled our time with all kinds of games. The kids loved them! It was a bittersweet time as we hugged and told the kids goodbye one last time. But we had a wonderful summer with them and pray that we planted seeds of God’s love in their hearts that will one day blossom.
It was a very special time at church today as we said goodbye to all the folks we’d grown close to. And Tuesday we will go out for one final lunch with all the teenagers we’ve gotten to know. We’ve had several parents pull us aside to thank us for pouring into the lives of their teenagers. They’ve expressed that we’ve filled a much-needed void of fun, godly examples. What a pleasure it’s been to get to know them!
What a summer it’s been! Full of great times sharing the love of God with the people of Albania.
