Ladies UNIKE Conference in Albania Day 2

The ladies were there in number again on Saturday, including some who could not be there on Friday. In the centre of this photo is Anila, an Albanian young woman who lives and works in London and who came to REAL at Kerith last year and so wanted to be part of the UNIKE conference in Albania. Either side of her are 3 sisters, Ema, Suzana and one whose name I have forgotten! Sorry!
Below is Jorida from Tirana who would like to come to Kerith Academy in September.

These girls from Bethel Church, Tirana were the singers at the conference, Edi, Mirjana and Jorida.

This is Megi, with Ann, also from Bethel Church who wants to come to our Academy too.

Another couple of young ladies who also go to Bethel Church.

Four girls from Victory Church,Tirana,the church led by Tomor and Miranda Ajeti.

Three of the girls we know well from Elbasan, Jeta, Sara and Xhersi, pronounced Jersey.

Time to start and they were all soon worshipping God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

After Catrina's 3rd session and also hearing from Sarah Farley, it was time for lunch. On return from lunch all the women were served hot or cold drinks and fruit tartlets.

Here is Esther with 2 ladies...I can see Sarah Farley and Ann in the background...

and Esther again with L to R, Lesley, Iris and Glynne. These 4 ladies from Kerith were part of the team of 9 that flew out from the UK.

Miranda, on the right, who had the vision and passion to make this ladies conference happen.

A really good group of ladies from a church in Lushnje, a town south of Tirana. Annie, in the red jacket translated for Catrina.

Ema on the right with 3 girls from Kruje.

Time then for the last opportunity to worship God together...

The time together ended with many of our girls telling briefly of how God had worked in their own life in various situations. Catriona Mitchell asked people to respond to God's love for them and led them in a prayer of repentance and asking Jesus into their life.

Penny Lander wondered if some ladies present, had for whatever reason become lukewarm in their faith or distant from God and wished return to God again. Many responded to that.

Time to say thank you from us as a team to Miranda and her many helpers and then say our farewells.

Here are Sue from Bedford who spends time with her husband Ron in Elbasan, Sarah, Rudina from Elbasan and Lisa.

And finally, Catrina and Ann with girls from Librazhd. They are Nerila, Paola, Arselda, all who became Christians at our youth camp, and Erlisa.
I am so conscious that I can only take photos of people. I cannot capture with my iPad the work that God has done these past 2 days in the ladies hearts. That some have made a commitment that will change their eternal destiny I have no doubt, and many others will go on in their walk with God with renewed vigour. All have been graciously challenged, and our ladies have given a wonderful example of working and relating together and telling how God has been at work in their lives.
UNIKE has been absolutely brilliant, because we have a brilliant and wonderful God. Thank you for your prayers,and we look forward to hearing of the impact these 2 days have had.
With much love and a grateful heart,
Ken and Ann
