Gypsy Smith School - Nov 2011
"No room in the inn" is a phrase we hear as Christmas draws near. Last week we were repeating it as we discussed the high attendance of Roma leaders for the Gypsy Smith School. Our dormitory was full and we had to bring in a couple of mattresses for the overflow. It was a nice problem to have and shows how the leaders are hungry for Biblical teaching. Our teachers, Hans Riphagen and Marco de Vos, were from the Baptist Union of The Netherlands. It was a good week as they taught on Christology and Characters of the Old Testament. At the end of the week we celebrated with a graduation service for Loredan who had completed his eight sessions.
During November we take time to count our blessings and we are grateful for the Gypsy Smith School. We are thankful for the students who come eager to learn, the teachers who diligently prepare the lessons, the pray-ers who lift up the sessions, and those that financially support this program. Thank you, God for your provision!
