Party with the Gypsies (Missions Trip)

This summer my wife and I have the opportunity to travel to Eastern Europe to be a part of a 12 day Missions trip with Georgian and Winnie Banov and their ministry, Global Celebration. During our time there, we will minister throughout the countries of Romania, Bulgaria, and Turkey with street outreaches and parades, feeding the poor, and sharing the good news of God's grace and love for all people.  One focus will be ministry to the Gypsy neighborhoods, where they are seeing an amazing outpouring of God's power. The Gypsies are a persecuted people group in Europe, and many of them are very poor and uneducated, but their openness to the love of God and passion for life is so wonderful. We believe that God has a plan for us to go and be a part of what he is doing amongst these beautiful people.
We will also be receiving hands-on ministry training and impartation, taught by Georgian and Winnie, and put into action as we experience the sites and sounds of the very streets where the early Christian church started! 

We believe we are being called by the Lord to go to Europe this summer to pour out His love to the hungry and hurting, and are responding by faith. Evangelistic mission trips cost money and require lots of prayer. Would you please take a moment and ask God if He would like you to be a part of this trip as well by supporting us either financially, prayerfully, or both? A love gift of any size will help.
Thank you so much for your prayerful consideration. Any support, great or small, will enable us to share the love of Christ in an otherwise spiritually dark part of the world. I pray your heart will be moved to pray for the people of Romania, Bulgaria, and Turkey.
Thank You, 
Justin and Kelly Rife
