Praising the Father for Answered Prayer! Day 7

Day 7

Join us in praising God for the following ways He is at work with the Romany.

*A young man who graduated from the Ruth School four years earlier returned to school, successfully completed high school, and received a scholarship to Polytechnic Engineering University in October 2011.

*A small group of believers in Detva, Slovakia, were touched by the ministry of Romany believers from Cinobana. The group in Detva asked to have regular meetings, modeled after the one in Cinobana. The first meeting took place this past January 25.
Praise the Lord for this next phase of the partnership where a successful model of ministry is going to be reproduced in another community.

*Women in the Romany village of Vulcanesti, Moldova, have begun making and selling handicrafts.

*The Ruth School in Bucharest,  Romania, has a new principal,
Mrs. Holban. Weekly chapel services started this year for children and staff.

*The last two sessions of the Gypsy Smith pastors’ training school have been filled to capacity. More Romany church leaders want to attend the sessions than can be accommodated.

*Jon and Tanya Parks have been commissioned to join CBF’s Romany Team. They will be teaching English at a Romany elementary school in Slovakia.

*Even though Sinti Romany traditionally oppose having their language written down, Sinti leaders in Germany are not only becoming convinced of the need for God's word in their own language, they are also spreading the printed New Testament as
language-learning material among their own people.

*An outreach to Romanian Romany immigrants in England is growing. The local pastor is partnering to produce appropriate media materials in this language.

*Yet another Student.Go team touched the lives of many Romany children during their ministry this summer.

*Various team members faced health issues this past year . . . and can rejoice in on-going healing.

*A Romany leader in the Czech Republic shows Christ’s love to others by running a Roma Education Center. A side benefit:  increased understanding between Romany and Czech in his home community.

A new commandment I give you, that you love one another, even as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another. John 13:34-35
