The voice of Saint Vincent De Paul always says "Love God brothers, love God and this should always be done with our sweat, with our arms .Because many works of God are in doubt and then there is no real love."

And a vivid testimony of God's word through Saint Vincent is the Service Camp of the VMY Albania-Kosovo, where infinite love works are nurtured in the centers between one another. The heart of this camp lies in the commitment of young people to serve, in cooperation with the Vincentian Sisters and Priests, those who are in the Psychiatric centers, in Caza Mimoza Development center , in the orphanage, sick people on the Saint Mother Teresa's house, and asylum of elders. They were visited in their houses to feel loved , to smile and to have real hope to go forward regardless of their health constraints.

Each of us has its own gift and must make its part in this wonderful adventure that is a Christian life.
We started the day with a prayer space to receive the blessing for the day that awaited us. Then in little groups with an infinite joy we go to the centers with two purposes in mind : To give from ourselves on the basis of the gifts that God has given to us and in the end left them smiling with the desire of welcoming us again next day .

We came to know them, the face of our brothers, exactly the same face of God , and get the most meaningful messages in our life:

- To love God and to love one another.
- To appreciate the family we have, because it was really painful to see those children who used to say "teacher" instead of "mother " "father "
- To thank God for enjoying physical and mental health.
- Without hesitation in daily life , to be alert to those who are disabled, that need help, the children , the elderly, the sick.

Moreover the afternoon had a particular importance starting with formation meetings with important subjects where we came to know ourselves, subjects that touched our hearts and minds , and in this way helping us in our journey.

Worship and Mass were the key to the mobilization of all our feelings and thoughts by making us stronger in our faith, feeling the meeting with God and to be thankful of being His children. Everything was crowned with the visit of the Apostolic Nun who celebrated an extraordinary Mass. And also there were entertainment, passing time together through games and walking in the city of us young people from Kosovo and Albania, seminarian, Sisters and Priests .It was really nice to get new friends from different places, with different formation, united in a single purpose " To serve " .

During this camp we experienced a mix of feelings starting with Love , Humility , Compassion , Fear - would we manage to carry out our mission , Anxiety , Joy , Tears ,and Smile. But we did , and we did it with success. The Vincentian Sisters and Priests were ready for everything that we need , even spiritual conversation, that we also needed.

For every young person who lived this experience , one would consider it as the most beautiful in his/her life and is always willing to return again because even if we gave, we got more from the experience. The prayer is strong for the continuation of this camp , being also thankful to the ideators and for those who helped at first and are still helping us.

Service Camp Shkoder is a work of Evangelism that has to go forward by giving its contribution on the society , making it better , humane , believing and filled with love. .

    They are very convincing and will definitely work.

    I'm kinda paranoid about losing everything I've worked hard on. Any suggestions?
