EEMN WELCOMES DAN & DAWN HALL AS BRAND NEW ADDITIONS TO OUR RESIDENTIAL MISSIONARY FAMILY!
EEMN is now officially serving in Albania! While not technically a former Soviet Bloc nation, the Balkan country of Albania suffered the same devastating effects of atheistic communist rule. Additionally, most Albanians identify culturally as Muslim. This means that few actually practice neither the religion of their cultural identity nor any religion, at all. This means the harvest is plentiful and (thanks be to God) we now have laborers in the field!
Dan and Dawn Hall are working in Peshkopi, Albania, along with Isaac and Elizabeth, who are the two youngest of their six children. The Halls spent two years helping to establish the first private school in Peshkopi, which is a village in the remote, east central mountain region of Albania.
The Halls have now transitioned to working with the only Christian church in Peshkopi, assisting husband and wife, Pastor Ermal and Sarah Lushi, with leadership and disciple making. Out of the town population of about 20,000 there are less than 75 Christians.
As both Dan and Dawn have extensive administrative and professional education experience, they are also helping start a new school in the capital city of Tirana, Albania. Nearly all private schools in Albania teach in English and are fairly expensive for most Albanians.
It is the hope of many parents that an education in English will help their children to leave the country for better opportunities elsewhere. This new school is unique in that it has the vision to serve primarily Christian families, teach in Albanian, be affordable for a typical Albanian family, and ultimately raise a generation of educated believers who stay in Albania to serve as “salt and light” in their own community!
Dan and Dawn are helping to train teachers and administrators in more creative and innovative educational methods not typically practiced in Albania
Please pray for the Halls as these ministries develop. Pray also for the people of Albania, as there is so much need in this poor country that it is often difficult to stay focused on only where God is having them serve.
The Halls are actively raising funds for regular support of their ministry in Albania. If you are interested in helping support them, click on this link: https://www.givetransform.org/hope-albania or you can also give through EEMN, by visiting our Support page!
