How to Use WEI

 

Matt 28:18-20

18 Then Jesus came to them and said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."
NIV

John 20:10-16

10 Then the disciples went back to their homes, 11 but Mary stood outside the tomb crying. As she wept, she bent over to look into the tomb 12 and saw two angels in white, seated where Jesus' body had been, one at the head and the other at the foot.

13 They asked her, "Woman, why are you crying?"

"They have taken my Lord away," she said, "and I don't know where they have put him." 14 At this, she turned around and saw Jesus standing there, but she did not realize that it was Jesus.

15 "Woman," he said, "why are you crying? Who is it you are looking for?"

Thinking he was the gardener, she said, "Sir, if you have carried him away, tell me where you have put him, and I will get him."

16 Jesus said to her, "Mary."

She turned toward him and cried out in Aramaic, "Rabboni!" (which means Teacher).
NIV

Striving to Reach the Fullness of Christ

The church in Fier is the result of the gospel preached by Virgil and Jackie Jackson, missionaries in VlorŽ for many years. While VlorŽ was the home of the Jacksons, they conducted worship assemblies in Fier as well as in VlorŽ.

Doug Smith, having established the church in Prizren, Kosova, assisted Virgil for a short period. With Doug's leadership, the church continued to make good progress. Helping Doug for a period was Bujar, his translator from Prizren, Kosova. He taught his own students and preached in Albanian.

Brent Parr, a young man from Marrietta, Oklahoma, followed Doug and worked in Fier for 2 years.

Steve and Ruth Byrne followed Brent Parr. Steve & Ruth served as missionaries in Fier for 3 years from 2006-2009. Good progress came as the result of their serving. Steve worked in many ways so that one day the Church of Christ in Fier might have an Albanian Preacher. Many have prayed that God will bring Albanian people. to serve here in Fier.

The International Bible Institute in Albania
(IBIA) began classes January 23, 2006, and the whole idea of the school was to train men for the Church of Christ throughout Albania to be capable and ready to stand in the gap.

Altin Koci & Eduart Hoxha, students of the School, graduated IBIA and begin work in Fier, the answer of many who prayed for trained preachers who speak the native language.

Give a man a fish and you will feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you will feed him for a lifetime.


I guess you all have heard this saying, and may be have come a cross people have asked for something and instead of giving him, better teach him to get for himself. If we can take this very principle to our Christian life! We canít change people, we cannot save people. But we can teach them how to change how to become better person, and we canít teach them how to be saved. My father used to advise me all the time when I was in the school, learn in such a way that you will be able to teach others too. If just can be not only learners but also teachers too imagine the difference that we can make. Of course we never stop being learners but we should be able to teach others too.

Benevolence Ministry
We are continuing our benevolence ministry to help those families that are really in need, with used clothes, with food supplies. But also they need some to seat near them and listen to their thoughts and their problems. Itís not just giving only food to this people, but they donít need just food but also love and affection showing that you care for them. We have been in contact with blind families; also we have been in contact with a family that God blessed them with triplets all girls and they also have a boy a year and half old too. They have been having great economic problems. They have only a room to live to eat to sleep. His wife and the kids are living to her parents because it seems they have better conditions than the couple. The Church here in Fier has been helping them with clothes, food supplies, and everything that we can, and also not forgetting symbolic help that has come from different people for this couple too.


Visiting with Members and Contacts
With Joel growing up, and being able for him to go to kindergarten has enabled my wife to come with and visiting the members, at their homes, and at their work. Also visiting the contacts at their work and visiting with them as often as we can. We have been trying to use every opportunity that arises to build redemptive relationships with those around us.


Children Ministry
This itís has been one the services, that has been a little hard, itís just time issue. Because during the week children have been busy with school and then in afternoon with private courses that their parents sent them too. We right now we have 10 kids that are the ones come often on the classes that we have with them. Also we have 7 kids from church members age 2-6 old, which we try to give them separate class during Worship Services and Bible Classes and my wife does a great job keeping them behaved, parents that kids at this age understand very well how difficult sometimes can become keeping children behaved! Sometimes our son can becomes difficult keeping him behaved, especially when is around people that try to show him love.


Fellowshipping
We try to use every opportunity that we can get to spent together with members, having a meal together or watching a movie. And itís a great opportunity to spend more time together with brothers and Sisters, because we are not brothers and sisters only on Sundays and Wednesdays or whatever day that may have together as a Church. But we are every single day of the week. With daily schedule going to work and other responsibilities may become difficult but not impossible.


Prayer Requests
Keep in your prayers the family with triplets; the girls have been having some health problems too. Also pray for their father to be able to find job to provide for his family. For every time I see him, always with tears in his eyes wondering how to provide for his family.
Pray for Godís work here in Fier, to continue and God may be glorified.
In His Service!


Altin & Vosjana Koci.
