This is what unfolded, day-by-day.
Even though their Sinti Romani is very different from the Ursari Romani spoken in Vulcanesti, Kennedy was able to preach (with a little help) and Otta was able to lead a children's program.
Pastor Otta & Kennedy Laubing's church in Germany had a vision. They wanted to partner with a Roma community in Moldova to make a long-term difference.
We found two. One in the north, where we received a royal welcome by various officials in the town hall . . . and another village in central Moldova, where I had visited once before.
We were thanking God that in both places, the Roma could understand most of the Sinti Romani which Otta and Kennedy speak.
This was particularly crucial when we visited the church in the Roma village of Vulcanesti.
Our German translator wasn't able to go with us, so Otta and Kennedy were completely dependent on Romani.
All along the way,
they distributed a lot of Christian materials
in Romani languages . . .
Puck made a lot of new friends!
