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."

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).

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 Vlorė for many years. While Vlorė was the home of the Jacksons, they conducted worship assemblies in Fier as well as in Vlorė.

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.

"The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; 38 therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest." Matthew 9:37-38

Being on the Field as servants of God and as you come before struggle and before a rocky soil we think that there are no people that are interested on God. But as Jesus was on field of service, He said the harvest is plentiful.

Benevolence Ministry

It has been a while that we have started this ministry, we try to gather clothes, children toys, whatever that we can think we don’t want any more or not us, it can be useful and very desirable to the one that does not have it. Grocery supplies we gather together and give to the needy (especially blind people or families, that might not be a lot but sure it lighten up the burden. Also we have been helping a new couple who recently brought to life triplets three girls. The triplets spent almost two months at the hospital because they were underweight. Now they are home and healthy with their family. We also are in contact with a couple other families which are in economic difficulties, one family has a daughter about 13 years old that has problems with her kidneys that needs to be under medication most of the time during the year.

Children’s Ministry

We are continuing our attempts to make Children Classes every opportunity that we can get. Now that the school has begun it makes more difficult for the opportunities to gather children together. Among the blessings that we get having kids around for classes, we have the blessing that parents now have started to greet us on the road.


Living Christ on daily bases, greeting people that other people don’t, having the patience to listen to the conversations that sometimes doesn’t make sense! It can be a great tool to evangelize, you show them that you care and you respect their thoughts. Building relationships and spending time with people it’s crucial for spreading the Good news. Encouraging fact is that also the members care for such thing and their daily life use every opportunity to share their belief.
