From the 28th of June to the 1st of July we had the first Klema Club Carnival in the Capraške Poljane Roma village outside of Sisak, Croatia . With this program we wanted to shared God’s love with the children through Bible stories, crafts, songs and games.
Why we did go to Sisak, Capraške Poljane?
As we served in Slavonski Brod many saw our program and were amazed. One time during our program there were some people from Sisak and they invited us to come to their village in Capraške Poljane, outside of Sisak. The Roma villages of Slavonski Brod and Capraške Poljane are sister villages, with many marriages between them. We went to Sisak for the first time in 2013. Since then, we have visited this village every year to bring the Good News about Jesus Christ.
Last summer we had a visit from a team from the US, brought by our coworkers from Budapest. We spent a few days serving together in Slavonski Brod, then we also spent a few days serving in Sisak. Just two months after their visit, their leader sent an e-mail that he wanted his church to come back to Sisak and that their church will pray for this village. God opened the door and 8 people from Master’s Community Church in Kansas City came this summer to be living instruments of grace for our Lord.
Even though there were 21 of us of different ages, cultures, and nationalities, Christ has made us one. Please pray that the seeds that were planted fall on good soil and grows and gives much, much fruit! Also, please pray for a full time team to commit to minister this this wonderful village!
