Hedley reports on “University Student work in
Vlore”. He writes:
"Most people become committed Christians
between the ages of seven and twenty-seven. Therefore it is logical
and biblical to aim the bulk of our evangelistic outreach at this
group. Indeed all of our Albanian assemblies began as a result of
Gospel outreach among children, teenagers and university students.
In the light of this, please pray
for Juli and
Ela Muhameti, and others in the assembly at
Vlore as they continue week
by week to work for the Lord among students, several of whom are
showing a growing interest in the Christian Faith."

all their church services and activities. For the past six years the
fellowship has used a local community hall, but this will not be
available to them after the end of February. They are hoping to use

that the Lord will provide for their needs.
