Around Albania

Within hours of arriving in Albania Dustin had an interview on Radio 7, sharing the purpose of our visit.  During our two week tour, we had quite a variety show with a full band, the UniShow, dancers, a clown and dramas.  We did 8 events in villages and city centers and were the first ever to perform in a prison outside Lushnje.  It was quite a security process to enter the prison but worth it to share freedom in God with the men inside.  It was such a hot day that the finish on one of the guitars blistered during the show.

We also were the first to do a show in the mountain town of Polican.  About a thousand people came and many indicated a decision to follow Jesus!  It was great to partner with an active team of local workers in this area.  They held a follow up event the next evening and had a great turn out of people interested in growing in their faith.

This 2nd tour in Albania was a great one.  We saw churches grow as a direct result of our events and we pray this fruit will last.  We had more opportunities than tour days so we hope to return next year for expanded outreaches.
