“You made us feel like real people in our bleak lives.” – Albanian student
Keynote’s acoustic rock band Blue Sky Nine toured colleges and one high school in Albania, Macedonia and Kosovo. They performed 9 concerts in 8 cities during their two week stay in these Balkan countries. Their drummer, Chris, emailed the following:
Prishtina, Kosovo: About 150 people were in attendance, 98% of which were Muslim!…As we were told, usually the Muslim students are very hostile to gospel presentations but barely any of the students left (only about 4) and nobody yelled at us or made disparaging comments while Teresa shared. So that is huge!
Here’s another excerpt from the same email:
Elbasan, Albania: Last night’s show was AMAZING…There were 280 in attendance and people were just hungry for the gospel. I could see students leaning over the balconies listening intently not only to our music, but to the gospel.
We got about 204 comment cards…64 people accepted Christ! 70 expressed interest in speaking to someone about spiritual things!
