Their place of worship is a concrete room added on to a layleader's home. Even though it is not decorated with carpet, stained glass windows, or fancy pews it is a welcomed place of refuge for the Roma of Berencs. It is a place where they can forget the worries of the world and come together to sing praises to the one true God that loves them and values them as His children. This day as we made our way to the tiny house in the rundown Roma section of town, God smiled. He gave us a sign through this beautiful rainbow appearing to end at the very house of the Roma mission. Ralph explained our American folk story about the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. He added that in Hungary God showed us it was true because at the end of this rainbow was the Berencs Roma congregation - rich in faith, love, and praise for their God.
