UCB Albania is a Christian ministry promoting the good news of Jesus Christ through the means of media and literature.
Fjala për Sot is the Albanian translation of The Word for Today written by Bob and Debby Gass. This daily devotional is a challenging and inspired message for the people of Albania. We have had many testimonies of people who have been transformed, changed and encouraged by the daily writings. Recently we have produced four popular titles by Bob Gass: ‘A Better Marriage’, ‘Conquering Worry’, ‘Breaking Habits’ and ‘The Winning Life’. We would like to continue to produce more books in Albanian that would build and equip individuals, churches and communities.
UCB Albania translates and distribute ‘The Word For Today’. The Project is run by Leslie Wright in the UK, translation is done by Edrin Gjoni a native Albanian.
The project was initiated in 2002 with the first edition of the Word for Today printed in Romania by the SEER organisation. They printed the first editons in Albanian and David McGuire drove all the way from Romania to Albania to deliver them. This in itself was an adventure especially when it came to dealing with guards at border crossings. Currently UCB Albania prints and distribute 3000 books with some going to Kosovo, Italy, Corfu and the UK.
