Ron & Carrie Young, Missionaries to Albania, were commended to the Lord's work by the assembly in Alamosa, CO in 1989. They have visited with us twice in the past, and we look forward to Ron's visit this month. He likely will be accompanied by one of his sons, and will be speaking both in the morning and evening meetings on September 21.
Regarding Albania, Wikipedia reports the following: "The totalitarian regime, which took control of Albania after World War II, suppressed religious observance and institutions and entirely banned religion to the point where Albania was officially declared to be the world's first atheist state. Although religious freedom has returned to Albania since the regime's change in 1992, the majority of Albanians today do not practice any religion whatsoever, but affilate themselves with one of the four traditional religions." An obvious call to pray for the Lord's work there.
