The Tide global radio ministry is celebrating an open door of opportunities to reach the lost in Albania. Director Don Shenk says the ministry began working last year providing Albanian heart-language programs throughout Albania and neighboring Kosovo – and now there's a demand for more.

"That's one of the things that listeners have been saying as they have found interest in this program and are finding faith and something to believe in: they're saying we wish we could hear this more often," the ministry spokesman shares. "So there's still an open door there for growth."

Shenk tells OneNewsNow that a multiplication effect is taking place in building the body of Christ as they work with local pastors.

"Two of the pastors so far have been successful in starting what they call a 'listening group,'" he explains. "And so it's a small nucleus of people where they're getting a few believers and hope to move in the direction of planting a congregation there."

Christians make up less than one percent of the population of Albania and new converts face threats of persecution, he adds – so prayer is requested.

The ministry, which offers programming in 23 languages, celebrates 70 years of operation in mid-October. Almost one-fourth of the world's population lives within the current range of that programming.
