Ted and Nita Bukowski
Ted and Nita Bukowski, after years of ministry experience, feel their hearts drawn to Albania. Nita's own journey of healing from abuse has given her a heart for the wounded. Her mission is to help the women of Albania to understand and experience who they are through God's eyes. She also works in cooperation with Global MOPS (Mothers Of Preschoolers) as an advocate in Albania for moms.
Ted has a passion for the downtrodden. His desire is for the Albanian people to come into an understanding of God's incredible love for them. Ted has been actively involved in prison and street ministry. He is a staff member with Selah Worship Ministries which currently offers a three year course teaching all aspects of Worship Leading. Ted is also a volunteer at Teen Challenge of Albania, a faith based addiction recovery program.
This small country of Albania was under the oppression of the Ottoman Empire for hundreds of years and then from 1941-1991 under a brutal communist regime. With a population of 3 million, the primary religion is Islam with only 1/2 of 1% Evangelical Christians. The need for the hope of the Gospel is great. Ted and Nita are inviting you to partner with them by investing your prayers, and your finances to reach the beautiful and yet broken people of Albania."

Mark and Peggy Halvorsen run Teamwork Africa in Liberia. Teamwork Africa's partnership with native Liberian church plants has seen dramatic results. From 2011 to 2014, 66 clean water wells have been installed and 166 wells repaired. Each providing safe water to villages that desperately needed it. In addition, orphans and children at risk are being cared for through our Starfish Kids sponsorship program, pastors are being provided resources to care for their villages, birth kits have been provided to enable a safer birthing experience for village women. We're also continuing to raise support to equip local pastors to more effectively reach their villages. Through this partnership between individuals and churches in American with local village churches in Africa, eternity is being rewritten in the interior villages of Liberia.
