This is just a quick update to let you know where we stand with things between our two organizations and the potential partnership. I have been corresponding with Bill P. in the Denver, CO area via Skype over the last few months to discuss the possibility of our two organizations collaborating with ministering to the Roma people of Europe. We have talked about how we might use their existing materials or more specifically, materials from the “I Am Second” movement. We talked about the potential of our media groups working together to provide quality sub-titles to some of their existing videos and maybe even developing new videos in the native languages of Roma people in the countries where imb already has personnel in place.
My colleague, Joe Silby has recently returned to the field from a state side assignment and I have briefed him on what I have been doing with this possibility of our organizations officially partnering to reach the Roma people. I have already presented the idea to my men’s discipleship group and they agree to participate. Now, we have a group Skype session set up for tomorrow evening to take a closer look at next steps and get some of the representatives of our two organizations in a collaborative session to discuss things. Mike P. (I Am Second), Boyd Hatchel (our imb Roma Ministry leader), Bill P. (e3 Partners), myself and Joe Silby will be involved in this group session.
Please pray for us that we will all find a way to partner effectively to evangelize and disciple the Roma people here in Czech Republic and all over Europe. We sincerely seek a path to do this through the grace and wisdom of the Lord… amen.
