Ralph & Tammy Stocks
Ministry Location: Bucharest, Romania
As the Stocks minister among the Romany, they look for unique ways to share the gospel and encourage Romany to work among their own people. Distinguished by their dark hair and complexion, Roma are a minority in Hungary and often experience discrimination. Most live in poverty, and their opportunities for employment and education are limited.
“Our dream is to encourage and nurture young Roma Christian men and women who will minister among their people so that we are no longer needed,” Tammy said. “We hope to see the gospel being spread through the Roma of the world without hindrance. We also hope to see other Europeans accepting the Romany people and working to reach out to them in spite of the deeply ingrained prejudice so prevalent.”
