Roma Missions Weekend

On Saturday, 2/16/08, the Roma Missions Committee held their quarterly meeting. This is when they discuss strategies, make plans, affirm each other, offer advice, and whatever else needs to be done. It was a very productive meeting.

On Sunday the leaders spread out across the city to speak in various Hungarian Baptist churches to ask for prayer and support for the Roma of Hungary. We took our guests Tibi and Natasha Lakatos and Tibor Joni to our Hungarian partner's, Tivadar Szegedi' church. After a great meal in Tivadar and Zsuzsa's home we were off to the Csobanka Roma church. The Roma leaders encouraged the members to reach out and bring about healing to the others that have fallen away. The church is going through tough times.

On Monday we had to go by the Bible League headquarters here for Tibi and Tibor to pick up Bibles for their small but growing rapidly congregations in northeast Hungary. Then we spent the rest of the day touring Budapest, eating bean goulash, and freezing in the cold as we walked around. Lots of work and ministry was accomplished as well as a time of rest and relaxation.

Please continue to pray for the Roma Mission of Hungary as we partner together to bring the Good News to the Romany.
