TCF supports the work of Victory Church in Tirana, Albania. This is faithfully led by Tomor and Miranda Ajeti.
Below is an extract of their work out there and latest news :-
Victory Church is a local church in the capital of
Albania, Tirana. This year we will celebrate our 30th
anniversary as a church, being one of those
churches that was planted very soon after the fall
of communism in Albania. For the past 19 years the
church has been led by pastors Tomor and Miranda
Our heart as a church has always been to make the
gospel known to Albanians through the preaching of the Word and also a strong emphasis is in disciple - making of those who believe.
Since the church was planted in 1993, it has run a Bible School (one year and two year courses) and currently we have 13 students enrolled in our program, from 2022, and they will finish in 2024. This is an amazing group of people who are hungry for the Word of God, willing to learn more and also willing to serve. Some of the students have served in a few summer camps during this season. Miranda is the one who leads and organises the Bible School by arranging teachers who come from abroad or the local area, translations needed during the school hours and accommodation for those who need it.
Victory church also organises conferences and seminars depending on speakers we manage to bring to Tirana to serve the Body of Christ. So far we have organised a few national conferences for women and also national conferences for singles in Albania. Below is a picture of one of these conferences for singles.
We also have a church in the village of Kajan, where there is already a local pastor serving with his wife and family. The church has organised a children's camp each year and people from Victory have always joined forces to make this kids camp a success. Every year kids come to Jesus in this camp and we thank the Lord for His continued work in this village.
Our church assistant Ernela Janca has been serving at Victory Church for many years and many practical things that we take for granted in church have been managed and organised by her. From meetings. gathering volunteers, helping with office and the church apartment, assisting pastors and other leaders in our church. She is a very important part of Victory church. TCF has been faithfully sowing into her life and we are grateful for all their support.
The highlight of this year for our church has been the purchase of new premises. Victory church since its beginning has bought a semi detached house, which we have used until recently for meetings and offices and Bible School. But we have prayed for many years to move into a better and more spacious place, especially for the main auditorium.
God answered our prayer by opening a door to purchase a much better and larger space and also by helping us to sell our old building, which was a miracle in itself. TCF has sowed a seed of £5000 towards this purchase for which we are truly grateful. In October we will have the last bit towards these premises and we are sure that before time the full sum needed will come in the church account.
Our next move as a church is a fasting and prayer period during the month of September while we seek the Lord for His direction in the new neighbourhood, where we have moved. After this month we will have one week of evangelism in the area where we are, and we are believing God for new people to be added to the church and for the neighbourhood to realise that a living church has now moved into their midst.
Thankyou TCF for your faithful support as one of our long term partners in ministry during all these years. We cherish the relationship we have in the Lord as a church family and ministry. May God continue to bless you as you are reaching out and being a light to Thurrock and beyond !
