Our Church is pleased to support CBF Global Missions in moments like these where bearing witness to Jesus Christ takes place through translation for the translator. "One Sunday in Moldova I saw a beautiful example of cultivating Beloved Community. Usually, when I am there, someone translates the worship services from Romanian for me--the pastor's wife Olesea or a young person like Dana. This helps me participate in the faith community. But what happens when a Romany pastor preaches in his own language? A Romany woman from the pew behind Olesea and Dana leaned forward and translated for the translators." - Mary van Rheenen, CBF field personnel in the Netherlands
