Living in tents in remote Roma/Gypsy Muslim people groups in Bulgaria. Reaching children, youth, and adults with the Gospel. Through this cross-cultural experience, you will have the amazing opportunity to grow in your faith and relationship with God and help the most unreached people group in Bulgaria: Roma Muslims.
Join us for a unique mission adventure that you will always remember! During “Come and be a lamp” you will “live” in tents among the poorest Muslim from Bulgaria. Together with local believers you may be a witness to them, preaching the Gospel, organizing kids, youth and adult evangelistic programmes.
The team will embark to Bucharest (Romania) or Sofia (Bulgaria) and travel to Karagiorgiev by car or train. You will have the opportunity to organize kid's programs, youth outreaches, visiting families, and you will have possibilities for helping practically where it is needed.
If you are adventurous, flexible, and willing to be stretched physically and spiritually, if you want to be challenged in your faith and experience God in a new way through cross-cultural ministry, you have a passion to reach the lost by sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ, then this outreach is for you. Basic Language skills in English, Romanian or Bulgarian.
