Yana SotiriouDear Friends,
 
We want to thank you for supporting ministry to gypsy people. 
 
My team and I have been working with gypsy children for more than 6 years. First we had a class with children once a week. This was OK, but it was impossible to reach so many needs. Then we started doing classes twice a week, which worked better. Later on we started doing Preschool twice a week and Bible and art classes twice a week for older children. Two years ago children started going to public school and preschool, so it became easier for us to do our part in this work and collaborate with local teachers. At the moment we do an art program and bible class with children twice a week.
God Loves You
 
As the children grow up, the changes in their lives are very obvious. It helps me to see the difference when I go to the other gypsy camps. Where we just started working, children are so wild that you can hardly teach them anything. But when I look back I remember that it was the same way at the beginning at the old gypsy camp. It gives me courage to go on, to be patient as I do my job to love and teach these children, and trust God for fruit in their lives. 
 
We asked the older children ages 9-11 to share with us their thoughts and answer these questions: Who is God for you, what has changed in your life since you got to know Him, and what are you dreams for the future?
 
Here are some of their answers.
 
Thank you“God is my father, He loves me and comforts me. When I pray I feel Him close to me.”  
 
One boy Mario said, “God is my shield and my protection”. Almost all of the children said that when I go to sleep and I am afraid, I pray and fear is gone. Also when they go with their parents for work, they pray and God helps them to find jobs.
 
For answering the question, “What has been changed since they believed in God?” they all said, “Ah, many, many things! You can’t even count. God changed us. We don’t steal, we don’t lie, and we don’t curse. We have learned so many things about God. We feel joy and happy to go to school.”
 
except to become a motherexcept to become a motherAbout future dreams, all the boys said that they want to get cars and find jobs. Mario wants to learn how to fix cars and to make nice houses and roads at the gypsy camp. His brother Taksiarhis wants to become an electrician. Maria wants to become a teacher and teach children about God. Some other girls Argiroula, Irini, Lola don’t know what they want to do, except to become a mother and have children most probably. Boys started laughing at them, and then we said that to be a mother is the hardest job. The first teachers in every child‘s life are their mother and father. To be a good mother is an honorable thing and is a very important job.   
 
HelloHelloThere is one family who moved out from the gypsy camp this summer and rented an apartment. The husband got a job and the children are going to a public school. The girls Maria and Argiroula said, “It is a miracle from God that now they are living in a house like all people. We can do our homework calmly. Nobody screams and bothers you, though we miss our friends from the gypsy camp.”  
 
It was interesting to listen to the children’s thoughts; to see things with their eyes. They are not young, but they are doing their first steps to find out who they are, to learn the world around them and to find their place in it. It is not easy. To me, they are heroes, and we are very proud of them.
