Team Tirana 2019 Recap
Thank you for praying for the team!
Who's in Tirana?
THE GRIMES FAMILY
Tom & Julie Grimes
Ella, Hope & Claire
In March 2010 the Grimes had an opportunity to travel to Tirana, Albania and meet with a local pastor. They began their trip home quite sure that they would not be returning to Tirana to serve. However, God had better plans. On the return home they met missionaries from Tirana that run a print shop that prints Christian materials. Tom has been in the printing industry for over 20 years and they could not deny God’s hand in this meeting. They were becoming convinced that Albania was exactly where the Lord would have them serve Him. With this in mind they made the commitment to move to Albania in August 2010. Tom helped the print shop with the ministry support they provided. Tom has also helped Pastor Aleks at Kisha Kalvari Tirana (Calvary Church Tirana) since they arrived. In March 2013 they began a home Bible study and in 2014 the Grimes stepped out and Kisha Streha (The Refuge Church) was opened in their neighborhood. Pray for Streha as we seek to spread the good news of Jesus among our neighbors and serve them with love, for Calvary Church Tirana and the people it serves, for the people of Albania to realize the hope and salvation they can have in Jesus Christ and for continued vision and provision as we seek the Lord together.

TEAM TIRANA 2018 RECAP
Aleks & Violetta Xhoga
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.
