Evangelical Church in Plasa

The members of the Evangelical Church of Plasa in Albania are committed to following Jesus and sharing His Gospel with their Muslim village and beyond.  Under the leadership of City Center missionaries Luke and Lydia Valenti, Albanians came to know the Lord, be baptized, discipled and began reaching out to their own community. The Plasa church celebrated its first church service in 2016, and ministers to the village through children and youth ministries and Bible studies for all ages. 


The church is now under the direction of Xhentil, who came to know the Lord out of a Muslim background.   He, along with other local leaders, has an incredible heart for reaching Albanians with the Gospel of Christ. 


Jani Hedegaard – Youth With A Mission (YWAM)

Jani Hedegaard has been serving with YWAM in Chico California since June of 2015.

After attending Discipleship Training School, God called Jani to start a preschool on the Chico base to serve the children of missionaries.  With her background in teaching, she received His call gladly!

While on an outreach to Yei, South Sudan, Jani became involved with the preschool at their YWAM base. She returned there to start a program called “Preschool in a Suitcase” and has continued her outreach both in Chico and South Sudan.
