Transform 2019 Albania - Love Albania

Opportunity Overview

“Transform 2019 (www.om.org/transform) is a unified effort around the Mediterranean to create momentum for the gospel by mobilizing people and training them in telling their personal God story.” For the past 2 years OM Albania has been helping a small local church in the village of Gorre, Albania. Recently the church has renovated their building and can now house a team of up to 35 people. The pastor of this church has a passion/vision to reach all of the surrounding villages near Gorre. The villages are made up of primarily Greek Orthodox or Muslim families. 

The surrounding area near the village of Gorre has a population of about 80,000 people and there is only 2 churches. The team will be split into groups and we plan on targeting the local villages near Gorre. The team will be working primarily with kids and youth. In the evening, we plan on having a time of reflections to hear what God has done that day. 

Teams will be made up of international, local OMers, and Albanians.
