My Home Church in Uzhgorod

The Roma church in Radvanka is one of the main reasons why I like coming back to Uzhgorod.  The folks here make me feel loved and accepted just the way I am – no judgments, no demands.  ‘You’re our grandma from Canada and we love you.  Welcome home!’  The pastor’s son, Ernie, warmly shakes my hand on Sunday morning before taking his place at the keyboard.  Another young man in his teens leads us in enthusiastic worship, in Hungarian, Russian and Roma.  God always understands and He sees the loving hearts of his beautiful children in this place.  Pastor Brugosh steps up to the pulpit to preach to his flock.  I discovered that sitting in front right beside the speaker was not the best idea.   Pastor doesn’t really need a microphone at all.  He preaches in Russian as that is the most universally understood language among his people.  I only understand a few words, but I catch his passionate love for his Lord and his brothers and sisters.  His Scriptural references help me follow his general theme.  This particular Sunday he is assuring us that no problem is too big for God’s power and love.  I returned home from church that day feeling so blessed by God and everyone I had met there.
