Aleks & Violetta
When Dick Hochreiter traveled to Albania in 1992, Aleks and Violetta were the first of those, that came to know Christ. Ever since then they have faithfully been serving in Tirana. Aleks is now pastoring the church, "Calvary Tirana" within the city.
In March 2014 Gerald had the blessing of going to Tirana with the Church Plant team from Wildwood Calvary Chapel to help Tom begin the church. Gerald went on this trip, expecting God to do something awesome and sweet, but what happened was something that only God could have planned. On this trip, he saw many things, but the Lord kept reminding him of the need for Christ in the hearts of the people. The Lord prompted his heart to take a step of faith, trusting in God in being a part of the ministry in Tirana, to serve alongside the Grimes family, and to live there. Gerald has been serving with Pastor Tom and the Grimes family in the church plant of Kisha Streha in the little neighborhood of Selitё in Tirana, Albania since 2015. The LORD made his call to serve as a missionary clear since high school and he moved to the mission field shortly after graduating. He serves as the children’s ministry leader, in worship, and as a fellow laborer in the faith with Pastor Tom Grimes. God is faithful and has allowed Gerald to find his wife and life partner, Nela, while in Albania. Gerald and Nela will marry in September, 2019 and will serve Jesus together at Kisha Streha. Pray for Gerald and his ministry in Albania to Nela, Kisha Streha and the neighborhood of Selitё.
