Ministry details

The Old Beach area has some very dilapidated buildings where some of the poorest people in Vlora live. It is a very picturesque area with both the sea and mountains. Yet it is one of the dirtiest areas in all of the city. Through a clean-up campaign in the area, we can show how to care for God's creation, and at the same time, reach out to the people who live in that area. We can show God's love and care for His very best creation - each one of them who He made in His image and likeness - and share the Gospel while we serve their community.
