When were we founded?

Spark Ministries, a non-denominational Christian based organization, was founded by our director, Rachel Wilson in the year 2000. Rachel Wilson is an associate missionary with Assemblies of God UK.

“During my very first visit to the northern region of Albania in 1993 with LightForce International, the country captured my heart. I realised the needs of this nation were immense.

After four years of serving in humanitarian aid, children’s ministry and church planting, my role was coming to an end as Albanian people were taking on the work for themselves. Faced with the decision of where and what next, England, U.S., Albania or another country; I strongly felt there was something else for me to do in Albania. In searching through my experiences, knowledge of the culture and situation, I believe input in to Albanian children’s lives is the most effective way to bring long term change to this nation that so needs hope. Albania’s children of today are the Albania of tomorrow. A few years later in the year 2000, ‘Shkendije’ was launched.”
