In May this year I went to Tirana, Albania to support Miranda in leading UNIKE - her women's conference. This was her fourth year and it was so good - God was with us, and we felt led and blessed by Him as we ministered to the ladies. I was accompanied by a couple of wonderful, faithful Kerith women, Glynne and Iris. You may remember an earlier blog when Glynne shared her highlights? Well now it's Iris' turn (read right to the end for the most wonderful phrase!)
So Iris, how was Albania?
I have loved being part of the teams going to Albania for the past 4 years. It has been a great privilege to do this.
The love that the ladies and girls show you makes you feel really at home. You are always greeted with hugs and 3 kisses!! ( I love it)
One of the biggest things for me is the Worship!!
The worship music starts and I think..”OK I know this song!”
We start to sing and all the English words leave me and I sing in Albanian. At that moment It feels like I am singing in “tongues” and I come right into Gods presence.
It is so moving and so special.
I feel that God has opened a door in my heart that I did not know was closed.
I am changed by being on this journey to Albania and I am forever grateful for it.
