Well, where do I begin? We (that is, the Downings) are a christian family hoping to move to Albania on Tuesday 27th August 2013 for at least five years. The first two years are purely for learning the language then eventually my dad hopes to work alongside medical students.
My dad’s brother, his wife and their three sons are Guatemala, South America which has the highest murder rate in the world. they have a blog as well: http://thedownings.wordpress.com/.
My Dad’s parents went and helped in the Sudan for a few years and my mum’s sister was working for the NHS in the Gambia for a year.
So as you can see our family has missionary blood in it and, as we have had connections with Albania for over ten years, it is the perfect country for us.
