St. John’s Home (a safe house for at-risk young women), an agricultural project, and a Bible school are all operated by national leadership. Chance and DeeDee Galloway serve as resident missionaries.

The Balkan Development Fund helps to meet needs immediately as they develop in the expanding work in the Balkan region of Southern Europe. Funds will be used for training, personnel, resources, equipment and property.

Bulgaria St. John’s House for Roma Girls

This is a joint project between FMWM in Bulgaria and the Set Free Movement to establish a safe house for vulnerable Roma girls so they are both protected from human trafficking and can thrive in a safe environment. The Galloways are working to create holistic freedom for both Bulgarians and Roma. St. John’s House will be a home where vulnerable Roma girls, who are trafficked at an alarming rate, can find the safety and love to thrive.
