Our two shows in Peja both went to plan B due to rain. Our first show was in a theater and we were all excited to perform on a proper stage. We had doubts that people would find us indoors but the fire dancers performed in the town center and then led the large crowd that had gathered to the theater with a flaming torch. We heard from local workers that night that we were an answer to 10 years of prayers. God is doing something new in Kosovo and it is humbling to be part of it.
On our last day in Peja we had our last full show of the tour. Though we had prayed hard for clear skies and dry ground, the rain had covered the basketball court outside the high school where the show was supposed to take place, where all 2,000 students could watch. Instead teachers selected 100 students to see the show inside their tiny gym. It seems God allowed less distractions for those 100 select students to clearly hear of His great love.
Between shows it was so refreshing to have a chance to drive up into the mountains of Peja in the misty rain and see the fall colors and visit a waterfall.
Our last event was a follow-up at the church in Ferizaj where we had done an outreach the week before. We shared testimonies and a bit of unicycling and dance during this low key evening. It was very exciting to see again the two 14 year olds that Katie had prayed with the week before. Another young man attended who was very interested in what we had shared and asked for one-on-one discipling.
Kosovo is not only the newest country in the world it also has the youngest population in Europe with 70% being under the age of 30. We thank God for an amazing tour in Kosovo and we are already looking forward to returning someday!
