Special Project in 2019
More than 70% of Europe's Roma (Gypsies) live in dire poverty, often marginalized, and victims of discrimination.
OUR CHALLENGE: to raise $20,000 by July 1 to help Gypsy women in Romania to get an education.
Nine years ago, Lina, a Gypsy in Romania, was illiterate. Yet in just eight years she earned a masters in theology. During that time she received a scholarship award that helped boost her confidence and give her encouragement to continue her education. Today Lina serves in a church she helped evangelize. She teaches Bible classes, provides clothing to the poor, and helps wherever needed. Her prayer now is for the opportunity to serve as a pastor among the Gypsies.
The royalties of the women's daily devotional book series published since 1993 have helped support the scholarship program. Book royalties alone are not enough to fund the scholarships. Donations and fundraising projects are vital to keeping this program alive.
