Student Focus – Doni / Kosovo

Doni is a student from Kosovo we supported as he pursued his undergraduate degree and now we are supporting him as he completes his Master’s Degree in English Literature.  Doni has taught English lessons through a local church program, which is a great opportunity to develop relationships with young people from his village and share his faith.  Learning English is an important goal for the people of Kosovo and is a required subject in elementary school.

Doni began with the worship team in his church and helped the missionary team there preach sermons.  Doni has now become an elder in the local church and continues to guide the members and preach.

One of the missionaries wrote this about a recent sermon.  “It was a powerful sermon, helping us to understand when God doesn’t answer our prayers in the ways we are expecting.  The message exhibited such maturity and understanding of Scripture, that at the end, I just wanted to cheer.”  A little later another one of the missionary team made the comment: “Is this the same kid who used to plug his ears during the children’s meetings just so he wouldn’t hear the Gospel?”

Doni and his wife serve in full time ministry with CRU (Campus Crusade for Christ).  There, they minister and share the gospel with the students at the university in the capital city of Pristina.

Doni is truly making a positive difference in the lives of people in his local community and the lives of students on campus.  We are very proud of the leader he has become and we look forward to seeing what great things God has in store for him in the future.

“MAPD has been a great help and blessing to me and my family.  I feel blessed and privileged to have such brothers and sisters from a different part of the world showing the kind of love and care that Jesus wants us to have.” – Doni
