News from Albania

Latest news from Julie Shelley in Albania It has been a very interesting first month and a half in Korce.  I am very excited to say that as I write this, Emiljano and my wedding is only 44 days away, and yes we are counting.  There is a lot of hustle and bustle in planning, and I ask for your prayers as we plan and mix two cultures in our wedding. I am giddy at the thought of an exciting new opportunity. It seems there is an orphanage here in Korce that houses disabled children, and I just so happen to be friends with someone who knows the director of this particular orphanage very well. So, likely sometime in September (after all the wedding planning and honeymooning is done), I will be going with her to meet this director and to (hopefully) volunteer at the orphanage, as I did from time to time in Elbasan.  Please keep this opportunity in your prayers as it is something I absolutely would love to do. Also, the calling that God has put on my life to reach the girls and women of Korce with His love has only grown stronger, despite the fact that I told Him that I would rather be called to church plant near the beach where I can swim all day. His answer for now is subtle ministry to the females of Korce, encouraging them to fulfill their callings in Him. This Thursday I will be hosting our girls group in my home. I am very excited to have the opportunity to gather these girls 2 times a month and talk about things that are relevant to them. I am very blessed to have the team of leaders we have in this group who have the same vision as I do, to teach a new generation of girls to be freed in Christ.One piece of news that is very important for you to know is in regards to the young lady who I wrote you about last month. Gena has had a dream where she says she saw a vision of an angel telling her that Allah is the God she is to worship. I have approached this with a graceful response, encouraging her to read and study both the Koran and the Bible because she seems to be hearing from the gods of both religions. I told her to take time to study and that if she sought Truth, then the real God would reveal Himself to her and give her a foundation so that she doesn’t have to be unsure anymore. Please keep Gena in your prayers, as I believe there is a spiritual battle going on for her soul at the moment. On a final note, I want to thank you all for your continued support. Those of you who have inquired about how to send wedding gifts, I will be posting a list of things we need for the wedding and for our house, along with their costs (our way of doing a registry since international shipping is expensive). Please let me know if you would like to receive this list. To support the work in Albania, just click on this link: http://www.fcf.org/index.php/donateThanks for reading,...

Leadership Lines

Jesus purchased our redemption and has given us a receipt, not an invoice.  If we had received an invoice we would have to pay.  Instead, He gave us a receipt for all He purchased for us.  The only thing left to do is inventory what is ours. Eph 1:7  He is so rich in kindness and grace that he purchased our freedom with the blood of his Son and forgave our sins.  NLT People insulted Jesus but He never insulted them in return nor did He carry a grudge.  A grudge imprisons you to the offender and you become the hostage.  Why give somebody that kind of control over your life?  What’s important is what happens in you, not to you.  So forgive, forget and move on. 1 Peter 2:23   He did not retaliate when he was insulted, nor threaten revenge when he suffered.  He left his case in the hands of God, who always judges fairly. NLT Each of us is living in a particular season of our life.  We have left a season and we know a new season lies ahead.  To succeed in life and ministry you must recognize what season you are in and stop trying to live in the past or the future. We must make everything we do count for the moment. Isa 50:4  The Lord God  hath given me the tongue of the learned, that I should know how to speak a word in season to him that is weary: he wakeneth morning by morning, he wakeneth mine ear to hear as the learned.  KJV Leaders don’t change people.  They can coach, counsel, teach, and guide, but no one changes another person.  Change only comes from the inside, as a result of decisions made by the individual. And he said: “I tell you the truth, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.  Mat 18:2-3  NIV Has God ever failed you?  No, and He will never do so.  Distraction comes when we try to figure everything out instead of trusting in our Lord, His character, His nature, His ability and His Word.  Be at peace!  He is Jehovah Jireh, “The Lord will provide.” Prov 3:5   Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding.  NLT History is history; you can’t go back and change the past.  Besides, God has more in store for you; your future is ahead and not behind.  So, let the past be the past at last and move forward allowing the Holy Spirit to lead. Prov 24:14   In the same way, wisdom is sweet to your soul. If you find it, you will have a bright future, and your hopes will not be cut short. ...
