Today, Durres is a modern and beautiful city on the Adriatic. We enjoyed walking along the beach and having a yummy lunch.
After driving back to Tirana, some of us attended a wonderful Palm Sunday weekend church service which was concluded by singing “Because He Lives!” Then the children waved construction paper palm fronds and sang “Hosanna”. Be sure to watch the video of the praise team’s rendition of “Because He Lives”. They did a fabulous job!
Most of our team flew back to Atlanta on Sunday and will return to work on Monday morning, exhausted and dealing with jet lag, but refreshed with the memories of an exhilarating week in Tirana. However, some of us have remained in Albania for an additional week of ministry. We are grateful for God’s blessings, new believers, wonderful friendships, warm hospitality, and great conversations...while enjoying cappuccinos, Albanian-style thick hot chocolate, and yummy gelato. We can't wait to return!
