Join our Roma/Gypsy ministry team and reach out to families and children in the Roma community of Vlore this summer!
You will be working with with our new Roma/Gypsy ministry team in the city of Vlore. You will be helping them to organise a children's programme as well as visiting the houses of locals in order to help strengthen and build relationships with the community.
During the children's programme, you will be involved in organising and running the story, games, and crafts. This community of people receives very little, if any, kindness from others in their city and we want to bring the love of Jesus to them. You will also be accompanying the OMers on house visits to Roma/Gypsy families to build relationships, see the way that they live and to minister to them.
