MAF has been implementing Community Health Evangelism (CHE) in the Balkan region since about 1999—seeking practical and spiritual transformation for communities. The purpose of CHE is to promote good health by encouraging local community development projects and empowering a team of leaders who can serve the needs of their communities. MAF is doing this in Albania primarily by building a new sewer system. Their goal is to equip local leaders from within the area and the church to pursue healthier communities. Continue Reading »

In partnership with Torchbearers, this poultry project constructs and manages three small-scale poultry facilities for the brooding of day-old chicks which, at three weeks, are distributed to our small prayer groups we call “Torches.” Continue Reading »
From our partner in Albania — Thank you letter
To our sisters and brothers, believers in our Lord Jesus of the Evangelical Covenant Churches in US, who made it possible by your prayers and money the partial financial support of the community sewer project in the village of Vlocisht-Korce.
From this successfully completed project about 100 families, of which 17 are Roma, were benefitted.
The project has resolved a serious problem for our families, since it was flooding our houses whenever it rained and mixing with sewer water and there was continuous dampness in the houses.
As you are an important part of this project, alongside the community and local government, we want to be grateful to the Lord who gave you a good heart to help us and to give thanks to every one of you with much gratefulness.
Please receive our appreciation.
God bless you and your families.
