When you think of missions, what comes to mind? Is it based on an experinece you’ve had, a book you’ve read, a missionary you know? 

Beyond that, when you think of THRIVE, what comes to mind? Do you know our mission? Do you know what ministries are taking place? Do you know how vital the part you play is? The reality is, the more you know, comprehend and see, the greater you will understand your role in this. 

The work God is doing in this impoverished, post communist country, does not take a few willing families, it takes an army of believers. It takes prayer, resources, finances and a community of people that are passionate about God’s work in this country. 

And each and every day we are reminded of this team of supporters, all around the world, that God has put together to advance his kingdom here. 


  Psalm 67

May God be gracious to us and bless us
    and make his face to shine upon us, Selah
that your way may be known on earth,
    your saving power among all nations.
Let the peoples praise you, O God;
    let all the peoples praise you!
 
Let the nations be glad and sing for joy,
    for you judge the peoples with equity
    and guide the nations upon earth. Selah
Let the peoples praise you, O God;
    let all the peoples praise you!
The earth has yielded its increase;
    God, our God, shall bless us.
God shall bless us;
    let all the ends of the earth fear him!

Nearly every line in this Psalm references “all people” or “all nations.” The heart of God, from before the world began, was to redeem people of “all nations.” 

This Psalm is our prayer. While we know this task has already taken centuries to even partially come to fruition, our prayer is to be faithful to our task at hand. 

In God’s infinite wisdom He has allowed Albania to intersect all of our lives, whether it be us as missionaries or you as supporters. We are all called to be faithful to his global mission in all the multicolored ways He brings to light. 

Through going, through praying and through giving we are all joining and working together to fulfill His great commission.

 

THRIVE STRENGTHENS ALBANIAN CHURCHES

to grow deep roots and bear good fruit in the name of Christ. 

 

But what exactly does that look like? What exactly takes place here on a day to day basis? 

Our goal is to give you a small taste of the variety of ministries here. Our greatest desire is for you to be dynamically invested and engaged in what God is doing in Albania.

How are we going to accomplish this?
