One very sunny Tuesday, R arranged for us to visit a gypsy family not too far from where we live.
After all our day's work at home... by 6pm we were ready to go.
We drove there... it's just a short journey to the next village.
We passed by this...
Turned round the bend.... and I think we are there!
But which house was it? Was it this one?....Ohhhh....can't remember....
Yes, we got it right afterwards!! It's this one!
The family were so happy to see us. It's been a while...!! She was feeling down that day and was praying for some encouragement....Unkown to us, that's when R phoned her, 4 hours later... to ask if we could come by. It was an answered prayer for her...Wasn't that amazing?
We were inside their house to start with. We all sat in a little room which is their bedroom...yes, on their bed! We shared encouragements from the Bible, sang songs and prayed with them for a short while but it was baking hot in there!
What a relief when we moved out to sit in the garden under the grape canopy!
The Gypsy group are a minority in this country...not very well accepted! They are normally poor in comparison to most local people. They mostly work in fields from 5am to 2pm planting/harvesting job.
Fortunately, Bulgaria is still backward in many ways...not many agricultural machineries are in use...giving these people some manual jobs to do but with a very meager pay!
How they enjoyed being photographed! We could go on clicking but we must stop here...
Look! Aren't they just as special as you and me?
