Reach & Encounter
Missionary Luke Valenti
Luke Valenti is a part of the missions organization Open Air Campaigners Albania and is serving in the Evangelical Church of Korca, a city located in Southeast Albania. Part of this training is assisting an existing Albanian youth ministry team as they reach out to the large village of Pojan, located about 20 min outside of Korca. Currently, Luke is helping the team expand their ministry in Pojan by assisting them to launch and grow a Jr. High ministry. Luke has headed back to Albania for another three years in the field and we as a church continue to pray for his success and safety and some of our church are helping to fund his mission.
Please pray for Luke as he continues to learn, grow, and serve the Albanians for Christ.
