Through meeting of needs we build relationships in Albania

View descriptionShare

Guest: Edi Demo | Pastor Julian Gibb interviews Edi Demo of the Ilyricum Movement in Albania.  Eddie says, "I was 13 years old when communism left; that was the first time I heard the gospel through the Jesus Film. That was exclusive news to me that someone had died and rose again, because I never heard that during the communism time."  Eddie talks about church planting in this Muslim nation, "The idea is we go to an area that doesn't have a church. We start to make Christ known in different days.  We offer something similar to VBS for two months: 5 days/week, 4 hours each day with teaching, guitar, piano, drama, arts, German language; every week we have a Biblical theme.  At the end of the week, the parents will come to see a show that their children have prepared; in this way we build relationships with them and share the gospel." Eddie continues, "That area is very open with the gospel and they will come the Lord. The biggest challenge and joy in Albania is raising leaders from within because we don't have seminaries in that area, so we raise them from inside that group of believers. It takes 5-7 years for a church plant to be established and they can be on their own."
