We have been conducting Blble training classes in four villages; Oshand, Ciumeghiu, Sinnicolau Romand and Shugatag. We are using the textbook “Conversion and Calling" which is published by World Outreach. This program is called Capstone and has been translated into Romanian.
The schools are uniquely designed to allow students to be in close proximity to their families and jobs because family is very important in the Gypsy culture. The cost of the classes is minimal, however there are requirements that must be met by the students, including a recommendation from a pastor regarding the student's spiritual life and suitability for the program. They must also do a practicum in hospitals, nursing homes or villages.
