Dick and Carolyn Otterness, serving in Hungary

Roma (Gypsy) people make up the largest ethnic minority in Central and Eastern Europe. They are very poor and isolated, mostly illiterate, and almost universally unemployed. Dick and Carolyn Otterness work with the Hungarian Reformed Church to train volunteers who work with the Roma. Together they establish new Roma congregations, improve access to health care and education, and help find employment. Before moving to Hungary, Dick served as a pastor and administrator for 27 years while Carolyn worked as a nurse and nurse practitioner.
