BMS Prayer Guide extra: Albania special

Pray for our work in Albania by watching this helpful video from the BMS World Mission team in Tirana


BMS prayer warriors – have we got a treat for you!

This coming week (14-20 February), the focus of the BMS Prayer Guide is Albania. As well as the prayer points in the UK’s best prayer publication*, we have a wealth of extra prayer requests direct from BMS workers and volunteers in Albania in this exclusive video.
Shot on location at the cutting edge of mission, where the sound quality can sometimes be an issue, almost all of our Albania-based workers appear on this film, including the Albania Action Team and even the children of the Gregory and Dupree families. Play, pause and pray for each of the team as they present their requests, and know that you are playing your part in transforming lives in this central European country.
