What do you need?

"What do you need?"
I am asked this question now and then by churches and friends alike who want to encourage us on the mission field. I have thought about the question a lot and when I get beyond the usual answers that pop into my head like brown sugar and kool-aid, I realized what we really need.
We need HELP! Sometime I feel like a very small person trying to win a whole country to the Lord. The task becomes overwhelming. The needs seem so great.
I believe we need help. Our arms are getting tired and we need someone to come along and hold them up for a while. We need to hear an encouraging verse or prayer request answered. We need to hear that more people are coming to the mission field. We need help.
How do we get help? We pray. We pray that God will send help. We pray that he will send visitors to see the country, we pray that he will send missionaries to work together toward the same goal. We pray that Albanians hearts will be open to the Light of God's Word. We open our hearts and share our passion for Christ, and we pray.
Could you pray too?

We will be in prayer that you are blessed with everything you need! Please pray for my mom and her church they are going on a missions trip to the Philippines this summer.

My name is Rebecca and I may be coming to Tirana to teach English in the fall. The Lord has been growing a heart for missions within me, and my goal is to teach English as a ministry in Italy within the next couple of years. However, it's looking like the way to Italy may be through Tirana, and I would love to be able to meet and connect with missionaries there and serve however I can if I do end up coming to Tirana.
I would love to hear more about what life is like for you in Tirana as missionaries.
You can email me at I also have a blog-
