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.

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”

We were so disappointed, when weContinue reading “Day 5: Distribution of God’s Word in Serbia & Croatia”
