ALBANIA EVANGELISTIC MEDICAL CLINIC
It is always a blessing to tell about our evangelistic medical clinics. In May 2019, ORH conducted four clinic days in Albania with missionaries Mike and Jennifer Fiocchi. Mike is a missionary with Baptist World Mission.
This is the fourth clinic that ORH has joined with Mike Fiocchi. The impacts have all been good with at least one church plant going strongly. This clinic was conducted in the area around Korce which is in the south eastern part of Albania. We visited 3 villages in the area, Maliq, Pojan, and Vreshtas.
The four clinic days were full of patients totaling 1075+. As people came for their health care, they were asked to listen to a gospel message. Mike and his faithful men, Ari and Andi gave the gospel as the team labored. Four people came to Christ which was a great blessing.
As in other clinics, it was our great joy to go into an area which was heavily entrenched in religion and give a message of repentance and faith. Pray now as we seek to follow up the work there.
Also, please pray for the people in the clinic area because of an earthquake which occurred on June 4, in the evening. Mike sent us this message from the people in the area requesting help.
“The most necessary things to be considered for the following days:
Three meals/day for 180 people (breakfast, lunch, dinner) Beds, mattresses, pillows, blankets, Clothes, hygiene-sanitary day care packages, Latrines and portable showers, Kitchen utensils, Financial support for the restoration of the damaged houses, House furniture, We would appreciate your consideration for the above mentioned requests and cooperate with us to solve this considerable human crisis for these residents and Municipality of Korca.”
ORH has committed $1000.00 so Mike can help in the efforts. Pray that this deeply religious area can be impacted by the compassion of Christ through the church.
