CEF Centre refurbishing project, Durres, Albania


Update December 2019

First phase of the project is done. Praise the Lord and thank you for your involvement.

We are very grateful for the centre which has been a great blessing for the growing ministry of CEF Albania in the past years. The building was purchased in 1999 and it was ready for use in 2001.

The building has a multipurpose use.

Firstly, it serves as a national centre with two offices and literature storage. Churches and partner mission organizations come to buy teaching materials for their ministry.

The second purpose is to host teacher training sessions and residential courses. The classroom is well equipped for training and 7 guest rooms provide accommodation for 26 people. In the summer months we are using the building to host camps for children and teenagers.

One of the children from a Good News Club had invited her friend to attend camp. She came and liked the camp so much that the next week she brought her brother Klaudio. Their family has very strong Muslim convictions, so during the week Klaudio had many questions about God, declaring that he was a Muslim. However, during the week he learned more about the true God and accepted Jesus, and we prayed for him. It was obvious that he was different than he had been at the beginning of the week. The change in him could be seen on his face.

We have reached the following stages:
1. Preparation for the wall insulation: Moved the electricity panel outside on the fence; Built storage with a plain cement roof in order to remove the old water tanks and provide shelter for reusable materials. This building also provides support for new water tanks above the shelter. Moved all electricity wires and tubes under the outside insulation.
2. Insulation coat on the front wall of the building.

Stages still to be reached:
1. Replace all outside water pipes and move it under the insulation coat.
2. Kitchen Ceiling: In the middle of July (hopefully) we will receive permission from the Local Authorities to raise the level of the kitchen ceiling on the 4th floor. Then make the necessary structural changes.
3. Finish the insulation of the building.
