Dawn and Ken Bishop

Bishops May 2016

Dawn and Ken Bishop serve in Albania.

In 2005 Ken and Dawn Bishop, along with their three children, Stephen, Eva, and Joshua, were called out of comfortable church pews and careers in the professional world to serve the Lord in Albania. Both of them were electrical/electronic engineers who committed their lives to the Lord during Hurricane Andrew in 1992, and soon after, they received the fullness of the Holy Spirit.

The Bishops’ first year in Albania was spent in the small town of Gramsh, learning the culture and language. They then moved to Durres, Albania’s main port city, and began ministry in the Keneta (the X-Swamp), building relationships with the people. After living outside of the Keneta for more than two years, the Lord called the Bishops to live with the people in their neighborhood. Living in the Keneta means muddy roads, very little water, open sewage canals, doing without, and no church presence—yet the Lord is beginning to move! The Lord is fulfilling the verse that He gave them: Trust in the Lord and do good; Dwell in the land and cultivate His faithfulness (Psalm 37:3 NASB).

The GP Albania mission team’s vision is to see a growing community of hopeful, loving disciples of God through Jesus Christ. Please pray as Ken directs the GP team as mission director to see this vision fulfilled and Albanian churches planted. Source: http://www.wesleyan.org/gp/mdirectory2/WM04-0285
