What does a Europe summer mission trip look like?
You will serve a unique people group in a very unique context.
The Roma people (also known as Gypsies) originated around India about 1000 years ago. They have been persecuted and outcast since their arrival in Europe. Despite this, they have maintained a unique culture, religious practice and identity.
In this region, Roma people live in small, isolated communities on the edges of main “Croatian” cities. They are often forgotten when it comes to evangelism. They struggle against high unemployment, low income and prejudice.
The Roma people are open to hearing about God’s Word and participating in ministry. This is in stark contrast to the mainly secularized Europe. Our goal with the Roma is not simply participation in ministry events, but to see lives truly changed.
As a member of our team, you will learn how to make disciples of Jesus Christ among a superstitious people who have low income. You will learn how to share the gospel while being faithful to God’s commands to help those in need.
The Roma are a people unlike any other in the world. Loving them in the name of Jesus Christ is a life-changing experience! For more information, please see romachristianfellowship.org.
