Phil and I have finally arrived in Tirana, Albania. We must have said the words, “we’re almost there” about a thousand times during the past month. And now we can officially say, “we made it!”
We arrived on Monday, and have had a whirlwind of a week. But it’s also been fantastic. We found the perfect apartment inclusive of a beautiful view of the city and mountains! We started our new jobs with World Vision Albania / Kosovo with an extremely warm welcome. And we’ve started to explore the city to find food, water, and of course coffee.
So far the things we’ve learned are:
- we need to learn Albanian ASAP
- we LOVE the coffee
- Albanians are extremely hospitable
- roasted chicken and goat head are right around the corner
- and World Vision is doing some fantastic work!
Thank you so much for your many prayers. God is answering them. He has been all too Good to us, actually. Giving us this beautiful apartment and helping us through this week.
We’ll be posting more photos soon. Know that we miss you! And again, we loved our time with you.
