The group of 20 college students from International Business College Mitrovica (IBCM) in Mitrovica visited for their first time the Protestant Evangelical Church in Mitrovica. At the church building of “Bridge of Salvation Church” they were warmly welcomeb by church leaders in the Mitrovica region Banush Elezi, Steve Frey and Ilia Sebastian.
Students showed interest to learn about the Protestant faith. Their questions were very sincere and included topics such as: What do Protestants believe? Which is the holy book the Protestants believe? How many Protestants are out there? What are the beginnings of the Protestant faith among the Albanians? The procedure are there to be followed to be ordained a Pastor?, etc.
27 guests as were overall, the majority of whom were students but also their professors and organizers of the visit (the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) Mission in Kosovo), hosts politely replied to all questions. The hosts also gave free books to guests who showed interest in Christian literature.
This is the first visit of this kind made to the church in Mitrovica. Organizers have spoken of increased interest by Mitrovica students to get acquainted with the values of Protestant Evangelical faith.
After the visit, Pastor Banush Elezi said: “We are grateful to God that we were able to share the Gospel with guests”.
