Roma (Gypsies) in Europe
There are 12-16 million Roma (Gypsies) in Europe and western Eurasia, scattered throughout 26 countries (including 40 regions or semi-autonomous regions), speaking 90+ languages, and yet only a dozen have the Bible in their Roma language.
Pray for Bible translation for the Roma languages in Croatia, Serbia, Bosnia & Herzegovina, and Montenegro.
Dr. Todd & Pamala Price have served with Pioneers since 1994, in Croatia, Bosnia and Hungary. They have seven children (the oldest four are not in this photo), Timothy, Jonathan, Elizabeth, Matthew, Kirsten, Daniel and Ariela, and live in Kansas City, Missouri. Pamala enjoys hosting guests in their home, teaching children, encouraging women and home schooling the children. Todd is the Roma Bible Translation Team coordinator. Their passion is to see a Bible translation in the heart language of all Roma (Gypsies) in former Yugoslavia, and to see countless Roma lives transformed through God’s Word. Todd’s BA and MA are in biblical languages and his PhD is in NT Greek and Corpus Linguistics.
