Teams will have an opportunity to visit, work with and get to know these Gypsies. Team members are encouraged to affirm our brothers and sisters and share their faith with people they meet.

Don’t forget your spending money. (Price does not include materials that will be needed for ministry, i.e., VBS materials, building materials, etc. See below)
