Building Together - Prayer

The Roma congregation in Kekcse have needed a building of their own for a long time. They had outgrown the house rooms there were meeting in. FBC Greenville, SC has partnered with them to purchase a house to renovate into a place of worship and refuge for the Roma community. Last October a team from FBC joined their Roma brothers and sisters in dedicating the building to the glory of God. The partnership did not stop there....

Friday, April 20th, a team of men from FBC arrive to help with the renovations. Among the tasks are putting a fence around the property, pouring concrete pads, building a new outhouse, and many little tasks. The FBC men will work side by side with the Kekcse men. Their evenings will be spent in fellowship, worship, and listening to a blue grass band comprised of men from FBC. (Roma greatly enjoy toe-tapping music and we're sure this will be a big hit.) The FBC men head back to Greenville on April 29.

Please pray for this project. Ask God to bless this work. Pray for safety for the men traveling from the US, to the site, while working, and traveling back. Pray that much can be accomplished and the weather will be good. Pray for the worship services, asking God to speak to the hearts of those present.
