|The Kratsov family|
We have been in contact with Radko Kratsov from Bulgaria for a number of years. Together with his wife Nevin and in cooperation with YWAM Sliven he has been active on many fronts within the Roma community, which stretches all across south eastern Europe.
We know them personally from the Roma conferences in Macedonia.
We regularly receive their newsletters and on several occasions the monthly proceeds from Twinkeltje have gone towards the work of Roma Ministry International.

One million Roma live in Bulgaria alone. In his work with YWAM, Pastor Radko focuses on the spiritual development of the Roma population. He knows from experience that receiving God's love is the beginning of a new life ... for everyone!
His personal story can be seen in this very interesting documentary.
He gives discipleship and leadership training in Bulgaria and surrounding countries and helps Roma people to develop a Biblical perspective in all areas of life: relationships, work, health, finances etc.
Some of the upcoming activities include:
- Plans to start a DTS (discipleship training school of YWAM) in 2020 for Roma youth.
- In October Radko will travel to Sarajevo in Bosnia and Herzegovina for an international Roma conference.
- In November Radko will travel to Kherson in Ukraine to conduct seminars for Roma leaders.
|Outreach, evangelism, summer camps|
'A wonderful opportunity', he wrote in an email to us, it has been years since I was in Ukraine, and it's the first time I have the opportunity to give leadership training there.'
The Bible teaches us that people perish due to a lack of knowledge and vision and it instructs us to go and teach the nations. Radko and his family have responded to this. We would like to support them with prayer and a gift for travel expenses.
