UN Ambassador from Albania Visits Kings
Lublin Dilja, of the Permanent Mission of the Republic of Albania to the United Nations, addressed The King’s College on May 11th. This visit was a part of the preparation for a summer mission trip that King’s is sponsoring to Albania.
Mr. Dilja, who has served as a member of Albanian Parliament and as the Ambassador from Albania to Washington, D.C., spoke to students, faculty and staff. He talked about the political history and cultural development of Albania.
The Albania mission trip represents the realization of a long-term goal of the College – to interact with the spiritual, political and economic needs of a nation. This holistic approach is expected to introduce a new paradigm for Christian intellectuals’ approach to global missions.
In line with the College’s vision, students will be interfacing with the national business, economic, political and Church leaders. These leaders will be sharing their views with the group on historical and societal cultural issues shaping Albania. Among other opportunities, the TKC team will be involved in interviews on a nationally broadcasted youth radio program. By participating in the national dialog, TKC students hope to understand the relevant issues confronting Albania – and to be involved in the pursuit of spiritual, political and economic solutions.
Members of the TKC team will also be conducting worldview surveys with Albanian college students, using the results as a means of introducing the Christian worldview. In a collaborative effort, the TKC mission team will be partnering with the Albanian Campus Crusade for Christ ministry.
