Prayer for phase 2 of the Bible translation

We are almost done with phase 1 of the Bible translation project, which is translating the Gospel of Luke and 50 chronological Bible stories in five Roma languages. Phase 2 will involve continuing on with this project by translating more of the New Testament in as many of these five language as we can. InContinue reading “Prayer for phase 2 of the Bible translation”

The Prices Write (October 2021)

Thank you so much for your faithful prayers while I (Todd) was in Serbia and Croatia, September 5-17. We praise God that we were able to print books which contained the Gospel of Luke, 50 stories from creation to the return of Christ, and a glossary explaining important biblical terms. We printed 750 copies inContinue reading “The Prices Write (October 2021)”

Days 12-13: God’s Word for the Roma in Croatia and Serbia

After our two day stay in Slavonski Brod, Croatia, where we used to live, we drove three hours northeast to the Roma village of our Bayash translators. It was wonderful to see them again, and we enjoyed coffee and a huge lunch together! They shared some of their background and testimony with Pierre so heContinue reading “Days 12-13: God’s Word for the Roma in Croatia and Serbia”

Days 10 & 11: Sowing God’s Word among the Roma in Croatia and Serbia

After spending the night in the town where Djena and Biljana live, we drove an hour and a half to Slavonski Brod, the city where we used to live.

We showed the Roma village to Pierre andContinue reading “Days 10 & 11: Sowing God’s Word among the Roma in Croatia and Serbia”

Day 9: Freely sharing God’s truth in Croatia and Serbia

After spending the night in a small town in Serbia, we crossed into Croatia the next morning.

From there, we went to DjenaContinue reading “Day 9: Freely sharing God’s truth in Croatia and Serbia”

Day 8: Sharing God’s Word with Roma in Serbia and Croatia

On day 8 we met up with our Chergash translators, Djena and Biljana, who drove over from Croatia, at a Roma church in northern Serbia, where we introduced Pierre to the pastor there. The pastor has an amazing ministry in 10 villages and a huge heart for the poor and needy. With this pastor, weContinue reading “Day 8: Sharing God’s Word with Roma in Serbia and Croatia”

Day 7: Sowing God’s Word in Serbia and Croatia among the Roma

Because we would be crossing the border from Serbia into Croatia soon, we had another COVID test that morning, so we could present the negative test results, which had to be no older than 48 hours by the time we crossed the border. That went smoothly, and we were all negative. From there we droveContinue reading “Day 7: Sowing God’s Word in Serbia and Croatia among the Roma”

Day 6: Distributing God’s Word in Serbia and Croatia

We had the opportunity to meet with another local Roma pastor and gift him with 100 copies of Luke and Bible stories in the Arli language. This is the largest Roma church in Serbia, begun about 35 years ago after the revival began among the Roma in Serbia in the mid-1980s. Afterwards, we were ableContinue reading “Day 6: Distributing God’s Word in Serbia and Croatia”

Day 5: Distribution of God’s Word in Serbia & Croatia

Last month, in the States, after we had already planned my trip to Serbia and Croatia, and made plans for which days we would do Scripture distribution in which cities, we found out that the pastors of several Roma churches would be away on those days at a conference. We were so disappointed, when weContinue reading “Day 5: Distribution of God’s Word in Serbia & Croatia”
