Bauke & Evie Deelstra
Many Albanians live in poverty, without hope. We want to bring them the hope of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Bauke (1988) en Evie (1993) Deelstra want to share their love for Jesus with the people of Albania. This country has a special place in their heart. They see how much the Albanians long for the joy of the Gospel. At the moment, Bauke and Evie are in preparation of a longterm ministry.
Every summer since 2010 Bauke, Evie and people from their church visit the Albanian village Pinet. They organise a ten day outreach programme with, amongst other activities, a Bible play for children, a women's meeting and youth evenings. They also visit the elderly and families. In doing so, they reach the whole village with the Gospel. They have experienced how valuable and important it is to evangelise in an islamic country.
Many Albanians are not familiar with the Gospel, partly because of the communistic past of their country. After witnessing for many summers how much joy it brings to share the Gospel, Bauke and Evie have felt the calling to move to Albania for a longer period. They hope to start their ministry at the end of 2019, after the birth of their first child.
