From The CCI President
Last month, I, along with Pastor Brad Diehl and his wife Shannon, traveled to Albania. Albania is located east of Italy and borders Greece, Macedonia, Kosovo, and Montenegro in the Balkans. Albania is home to 3 million people, of whom 55% are Muslim, 50% are Roman Catholic, and less than 0.6% are Evangelical Christians. For 46 years, Albanians lived under the harsh suppression of Communism and was the most underdeveloped and poorest country in Eastern Europe. In the early 1990s, Albania became democratic and since then has been experiencing growth and development. This was also the time when the gospel was reintroduced into Albania.
