Bible Power

CHICAGO—Bible League and Campus Crusade for Christ partner with local churches in Albania this summer in an evangelistic project to reach Tirana—Albania’s capital and largest city. Through this project, which begins in July, believers in Tirana will demonstrate their passion for the Lord Jesus Christ, as they blanket this city with God’s Word.

“Albania has Europe’s youngest population, with more than 30 percent of the 3.5 million total population under the age of 18,” said Reverend Robert Martin, Director of Bible League’s Central/Eastern Europe Ministries. “Youth and their families are in desperate need of the transforming power of God’s Word.”

This summer, Bible League will help meet that need by providing 10,000 Bibles, 100,000 New Testaments, and 120,000 Scripture portions, equipping local churches to mobilize in Tirana—putting God’s Word into action.

But it doesn’t stop there. With less than one percent of Albania’s population declaring themselves Christian, the initial campaign is only the first step in transforming lives through God’s Word. Beyond the summer, Bible League will follow up the campaign through these local churches in Tirana as they engage people in Bible studies, train leaders, and lead them to a local body of believers.

“Bible League is excited for the opportunity to come alongside the churches in Tirana—together obeying the Great Commission,” concludes Martin.
