Jeta is an elderly woman that lives in the village of Vloqisht. She is the mother of four boys. Sadly, her husband died many years ago and one of her sons died recently. Two of the sons are married and another is working in Greece.
Her house was poorly built with an unstable foundation and a weak roof. At the beginning of June, a few major earthquakes hit the Korca area, her house was left in disrepair. The walls were crumbling and the roof was leaking.
The Vloqisht church wanted to help but didn’t have the funding for the project so they prayed for God’s provision. As always, He came through in amazing ways. The same Dutch team that raised funds for the church in Sheqeras, raised the funds to rebuild Jeta’s house. With the money raised, the men and teen boys from the church fixed up the entire house.
They even finished it with a fresh coat of paint. The yellow gives the home a cheery feeling that welcomes new beginnings. Just last week, I had the pleasure of visiting Jeta in her new home and the smile on her face said it all. She was happy to welcome us into her home because the walls stood strong and the roof fought off the elements.
The Kenedi Foundation has many established ministries and churches in the villages but sometimes the needs that arise go beyond what we are capable of caring for on our own. It is through our supporters that we are able to help in situations like Jeta’s. If you would like to help change someone’s life and be apart of God’s work here in Albania, please consider donating.
