Greetings Brothers and Sisters in the Lord,
May we praise our Lord and Savior for his many blessings! Jenny and I are delighted to update you in our Mission to Albania. Currently we are rejoicing in an affirmation of my call to ministry. On Saturday, January 27th, my final examination to become ordained was sustained by Calvary Presbytery and the ordination and installation service is to be held Sunday, Feb18th at 6:00 pm at Woodruff Road Presbyterian Church PCA.
We are most encouraged in our financial blessings as we approach the 50% mark of support raising. Please pray as there are several churches in which I have candidated and await their response. I am planning to make presentations at upcoming Missions Conferences in March but continue to seek opportunities with other churches, coveting your prayers in this endeavor to raise another $ 1500-2000 a month. We have also been surprised and blessed with very large financial gifts last December, and we are thankful to the Lord for our friends and partners in the work of His Kingdom.
Also, there is an apartment awaiting us in Durres, Albania in the same courtyard as my parents. Needless to say Jenny is much excited for this as we will finally have a place to call home after having moved six times since we got married in March 2005. We hope to provide a further update as we approach our departure for Albania. In the meantime we are grateful for your prayers and support!
Blessings in Our Coming King,
Albert and Jennifer Kona
