Learning who Jesus is in Slovakia
Jul 17, 2017
"This is what we want the thousands of Roma people in Slovakia to know" says Wendell McClung, AGWM personnel in Slovakia. "We as a team want to introduce Jesus to this people group. As they come to our events, our prayer is that they will experience Jesus and choose to let Him be the Lord of their lives."
Such an event took place in June in Sobrance! Over 800 people were introduced to Jesus and over 300 accepted Jesus as their Savior. Upon arrival to the Convoy of Hope event, the guests were given hot food. The kids went to a tent where they were ministered to by a team from Wisconsin.The adults went to another tent where they heard praise and worship music, testimonies and preaching, all in the Roma language.
The team held four services that day and believe that all present were given an understanding of who Jesus is. When each group left, they were sent home with a Bible and a bag of non-perishable food items. Now these new converts need prayer.
The next day a traditional style "church service" was held with a separate kids ministry area. There were an estimated 200 adults and 70 kids in attendance. As of this writing, they have had four services and will continue to meet weekly. The McClungs are so thankful to all who worked, ministered, prayed and gave so this "church" could be planted. Their desire is to make disciples of these new Roma converts. The follow-up ministry in Sobrance is key to keeping this harvest. There are trained kids ministry workers and pastoral leadership in place to see that this church plant becomes a vibrant place where others can get to know "who Jesus is".
