The first Community Health Evangelism (CHE) Training of Trainers (TOT1) Conference in Hungary is in the books. During the week of April 15 to 20th, Hungarians, Serbians, Croatians, Bosnians, Slovakians and Americans involved in Roma work met in Balatonöldvár, Hungary for a week of intensive training.
The group of 20 studied together the 8 key principles of Community Health Evangelism, a strategy being used in over 110 countries and by over 1200 workers to bring spiritual and physical health to individuals, churches and communities entrenched in the cycle of poverty. CHE trainers Wendy Larson (Bosnia), Diane McNary (Slovakia) and Ron and Jeannie Seck (Hungary) facilitated the training.
The 16 graduates of TOT1 were very enthusiastic about the new “tools” they have in their “toolboxes” as they head back to their work with the Roma of Central Europe. Future TOT1 Courses are already being scheduled for Croatia, Serbia and Hungary so co-workers and Roma themselves can be trained to produce wholly healthy Gypsies in wholly healthy churches in wholly healthy communities.
Ron and Jeannie, Wendy and Diane were also very encouraged by the results of the week’s conference and thankful to the Lord for many answers to prayer during the week.
