Jill is a primary school teacher from St Andrews in Scotland. She has been teaching at GDQ School in Tirana, Albania, from September 2009.


GDQ is an international school for children from the mission community. There are currently 90 children in attendance of 14 different nationalities. As well as normal school activities, the school runs the Miracle Club, a weekly club for local Albanian children. Some of the teachers have been involved in training sessions for local Albanian teachers. The school also offers support for families home-schooling their children.


Jill taught Grade 2 class at GDQ as a BMS short-term worker to begin with. After a period at BMS' International Mission Centre in Birmingham, returned to Albania in April 2011 to work longer term.


Jill's home church is St Andrews Baptist Church in Fife.

The school which I teach at has recently been involved in raising money for a Toilet Twinning project. (You do literally twin an existing toilet with a new toilet in another country.)Toilet Twinning is one organisation which helps provide health education and a clean safe toilet for a family or community in an impoverished country.  A shocking 2.5 billion people do not have somewhere, safe, private or hygienic to go to the toilet. This impacts not only on their health, and safety but also on education and consequently future opportunities.
Although we were raising awareness of what is a very...

Earlier this week, a totally unexpected gift from someone in the UK, was hand delivered to me here in Albania. During the course of the day it evolved that a small chain of people had been involved in making sure that I received the extremely thoughtful gift.
A few weeks ago I was given a card from a friend at home- once again a small chain of people were involved in guaranteeing that I received the card.
Often in life we can be part of a chain of people who are involved in bringing/giving something to someone. Care of a patient in a hospital, a fund raising event, a...

The church ,which I go to was cancelled, and so I joined the excited group from my church as we caught a...

Dear friends,
I hope you have all had a good Christmas and New Year and have been a blessing to, and been blessed by those round you.
I visited Dad in NI during the school break. It was lovely to catch up with family and friends there. Dad lives in a coastal town so it was also great to see AND to hear the sea again.
As we travel through our often busy,or perhaps troubled lives we can often be in situations where we can see the sea, but not actually HEAR it-...

Last weekend was a holiday weekend for many here in Albania, as two of the country's most significant recent historical events were celebrated. Independence from almost 500 years of Ottoman rule (28-11-1912) was celebrated on 28th. This was followed on 29th by the 70th anniversary of liberation from Germany in The Second World War.(Albania was also occupied by Italy from 1939-1943.) Below you'll see a series of large photos which were displayed in the main square in Tirana.

We know that in what we call "Eastern Europe," the sacrifices that were made by many, as they fought at the end of World War 2  have often been overshadowed by the spread of Communism...
