HFTW Albania

A very special Text Message


 June/July 2019 
Newsletter hftw.org
Today we received this from a member of a HFTW mission team from Thompson Station Church (Columbia), TN pastored by Eric Nichols. There are 10 in the group of young people who go to our Hope Center every summer to do VBS for the community of Marikaj. 
“So today we met a young man name Kol who grew up at the Hope Center. He left last June and since that time, he has gone from doing dishes at a restaurant to running a chain of Starbucks type coffee shops here in Albania. He invited us for coffee and this is their famous cappuccino. He is now wanting to help the teens that leave the Hope Center to get jobs. He was so humble and gave God all the credit for his success. This is why we keep coming, to partner with a mission that is turning out Christ followers into the community.” 
The young man spoken of is Kol Zmajli who went through the Hope Center and graduated in 2015. If you have seen any of our videos, Kol is the one featured on our video. You can go to this link to view it. https://vimeo.com/153259898 
What a blessing to see how God is using him and blessing him with this awesome opportunity. The group pictured at the coffee shop is the TSC group along with a couple of our staff, and Kol is the good looking young man in the middle with the blue shirt and big smile. We are so very proud of him! 
Giving all the glory to God and thanks to TSC Columbia, we had 19 saved at our VBS in Marikaj. Shout out also to our HFTW staff and our Hope Center teens who help so much during VBS. One of those saved is the man pictured on the left next to Pastor Mike Fiocchi. He has been coming to HFTW Community church regularly for several months and received one of the hearing aids that HFTW Albania provided him. Cherie said, “I guess hearing the word of God really did make a difference in his life.” Pastor Eric preached the message and Reshit(pronounced Raysheet) held up his hand that he wanted to be saved. We praise God for all that He did last week.
