Albanians are a nation and ethnic group native to Albania and neighboring countries. They speak the Albanian language. More than half of all Albanians live in Albania and Kosovo. Albanians suffered until 1990 under one of the most repressive Communist regimes in Europe. All religions were banned. By the time the Communist government fell, the number of evangelicals had dwindled nearly to zero. Since then, mission activity both in Albania and Kosovo has seen significant response.
