"It was the first time that we, as a group, sang the whole National Hymn."
The celebration took place in a new building in Vlochisht, one of the three villages near Korca in south-east Albania where BWD has been pioneering their wide-ranging practical, spiritual and health-focused ministries for several years.
"Our Indepedence Day is very special, and is the result of all the efforts of Albanians for 500 years to be free politically and spiritually," observes Dr. Hoxhaj.
"Praise the Lord for the great provision of a house in the village of Vlochisht, where we have been serving for several years. By God's grace, the Evangelical Church in Korca brought a house in the village for all of the believers to come together and enjoy the Word of God.
"Over 100 people from the village came to the Dedication Day of this place on the 21st of October.
