74 people accept Jesus after Christianity Explored reaches Albania

Organisers say 74 people have accepted Jesus as their Saviour since the programme was translated into Albanian and launched in the country.

Ian Roberts of Christianity Explored said: "We've been thrilled to hear how well received Christianity Explored has been by the Albanian church.

"It's less than a year since we were over in Tirana [Albania's capital, pictured below] launching the course, and already plans to print Discipleship Explored as a follow on are almost finalised.

"We thank God for the team who've made this happen and the people who have heard the gospel through their endeavours."

Since the launch in May last year, the number of churches and local Christians having access to Christianity Explored in Albania has almost doubled - to 84.

Almost 3,000 Christianity Explored workbooks have been distributed, while 300 pastors and small group leaders have been taught how to use them.

One of the poorest countries in Europe, Albania was communist until 1991. Approximately 20 per cent are Christians - largely a mix of Orthodox and Catholic.

A Monthly Gift Of $11 Makes A World Of Difference

In a world of fake news there’s never been a greater need for quality Christian journalism. Premier’s mission is to provide the Church with the most up to date and relevant news, told from a Christian perspective. But we can’t do it without you.

Unlike many websites we haven't put up a paywall — we want to keep our journalism free at the point of need and as open as we can. Premier’s news output takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. No one in the USA is sharing news like we are across radio, magazines and online so please help us to continue that today.

For a monthly gift of $11 or more we’d also be able to send you a free copy of the brand new Premier Bible, a wonderful Anglicised version of the NLT packed with exclusive bonus content, reading plan and resources to help you get the most out of scripture.

Your monthly support will make a world of difference. Thank you.
