Brazilian couple returns to Albania for second term

Posted on July 7, 2012 by VMMissions Staff

Rafael and Solange Tartari along with infant son, Paolino, recently returned to Lezhe, Albania, following a busy three-month “home assignment,” visiting family and churches in Brazil. They were commissioned by their sending agency, Junta Menonita de Missões Internacionais (JMMI), and seconded to work collaboratively with VMM missionary team in Albania for a second term.

Their first term of service was dedicated to learning the Albanian culture and language and finding their place in the Albanian church. They serve on the leadership council of the Lezhe church and assist in its ministries of teaching, preaching, worship, and friendship evangelism. Rafael also serves on the AMMF (Albanian Mennonite Mission Foundation) board. Solange gives leadership to the women’s fellowship. They have been well received and greatly appreciated as they befriend and minister to the Albanian people.
