After getting a good night of sleep, we began our day by attending Cornerstone Church where we tried to sing familiar praise and worship songs in Albanian.  Then Nikolin gave a wonderful message about prayer.

After church, we had a great time visiting with staff members and students that we had met on previous trips to Albania.

Then we were able to spend more time with students and staff at lunch.

After lunch was Orientation as the team leaders welcomed us and shared the schedule and plans for the week.

 Of course, prayer was important too!

At 5:00 we had a great reunion with students from our English Camp last summer!  Most of them had not had the opportunity to speak English since we were together the last time, so it was great to renew friendships and give them an opportunity to use their English in a fun setting while eating pizza!

Then some of us took students out for a “coffee” to continue the conversations.
