God's word for the Roma

David and Sári Gardner, Romania, Roma Service Group – David and Sári are working with different Roma (Gypsy) groups to help them use God's word in the language that is closest to their heart. With their team they work on translation, on helping churches use the Scriptures in creative ways and on helping Roma children make a better use of formal education. There are Roma from Romania in many Western European countries, so the materials they are developing can serve these communities from Glasgow to Cyprus. Please pray that the word will spread and change lives. Even when everyone speaks a single variety of Romani, often Roma see the national language as 'the right language for church'. Please pray Roma will accept that God values the language that touches them most deeply, and they do not need to use their second or third language for worship.
