Hey everybody. I'd like to request your prayers for the next two weeks or so. A friend and I from church are heading out Thursday morning for Albania on a mission trip.
We'll be working through an organization called World English Institute, and we'll be teaching Albanians of all ages (though mostly HS seniors and college-age students) English through what started out as a Bible correspondance course and a set of English grammar books. Four years of English grammar is a prerequisite, so we'll be mostly teaching conversational English and helping them become more familiar/comfortable with the language. We'll be working with about 22 or 23 other teachers, so while it's not a huge effort, it's still pretty sizable.
We'll be gone through the 22nd of July, so I probably won't be posting on here much for a while. :p
We leave Thursday morning out of Greensboro for Washington DC, then to Vienna, Austria, then finally into Tirana, Albania, where we'll be working. This is the first time I've ever been on a commercial plane or been out of the country, so I'm really excited about the plane trip and seeing another country in addition to the mission work itself.
As I understand it, we'll be staying in a seven room hotel...and we're not to expect A/C. However, there will be showers, so I suppose that's a plus.
Your thoughts and prayers over the next few weeks would be greatly appreciated!
EDIT - Anybody have a small integrated and light bookshelf speakers I might could pack in my second suitcase? :D:D
