A regular session of the Gypsy Smith School for training Roma leaders in Romania was held September 17-21 with Greg Barr, South Carolina, and Charles Qualls, from Georgia teaching. This is a picture of the group that attended. One leader was recognized in a graduation ceremony. The group was smaller than usual because in the fall the men are able to find seasonal work as day laborers. It was a good experience for all and the men learned about prayer (led by Charles) and Matthew (led by Greg).
During the session on prayer, the men would often break out into spontaneous prayer as they discussed the Psalms. When asked about prayer for difficult situations or when you simply did not know how to pray, the men learned the prayer that never fails, "Thy will be done".
