I, Tammy, have spent a lot of time in November and December speaking at churches, telling the Roma stories, and encouraging gifts to CBF's Global Missions Offering.
First Baptist Church of Greenville, SC has been a partner of ours for several years. Members come every year to teach English and be the presence of Christ among the Roma students at the Gandhi High School in Pecs. In fact this is the church that sent us Glen and Clista Adkins, our current Global Service Corps workers, now teaching at Gandhi. It was my privilege and pleasure to speak to their Women's Mission Circle in November (Both Ralph and I had also shared in their Sunday morning service in October) The ladies were fun to be with and showed such excitment to hear how God is working among the Roma in Hungary. It also gave me the opportunity to visit with five women who have been apart of the teams. (pictured here: Ethel Childress, Becky Boutin, and Elaine Sarratt. Susan Shelley and Peggy Goodman were there too) Thanks ladies. I had a blast!
