10 Year Anniversary

8-8-08 numbers

Above: A collage of numbers from photos taken on the streets of Eger, Hungary where we spent our tenth wedding anniversary. We are thankful for teammates Brenda and Val watching over our kids so that we could spend some quality time together as a couple.


Above: It is amazing to think that we have spent more time together as a married couple in Hungary than in the US.


Above: Some of the beautiful sights seen from the highest peeks in the mountains on the way to Eger.



Above: Last week (before our weekend anniversary getaway), we took some time off with the kids.


Above: This park located in the Matra mountains is less than an hour drive away from our house. God provided a wonderful breeze to keep the kid’s kites in the air and to help bring relief to an ongoing heat wave in Hungary.



Above: We were thankful for some time of rest after a flurry of ministries that happen in the summer.



Above: Miki (now with really really really short hair) greeting teenager Gabi’s mom for tonight’s worship service. It is such a joy to see God at work in Gabi’s family. Though his sister and mother attend church, they have not made a decision to put their faith in Jesus Christ. Please pray for Gabi as he gives testimony through his dramatic life change, and for his family to come to know Jesus as Savior and Lord of life.


Above: Dear friends, Marcsi and Dezső. Dezső has truly been an example in our congregation of being a godly man. He is always eager to serve, eager to give testimony with wisdom and humility. We are so thankful that God rescued both Marcsi and Dezső and caused them to blossom in their lives as they follow Him.


Above: Eszti’s brother, Gyöző holding Eszti’s son Dadiusz (I can only imagine how you must be struggling to pronounce those names). So here is a quick lesson. Eszti = (Es tee), Gyöző = (Jew zoo) and Dadiusz = (Daw dee oos).


Above: Miki’s wife, Erika giving testimony to God healing her daughter Anna. Even the doctors commented on how amazingly fast she was healed. There only explanation was that maybe it was not as serious as they initially diagnosed. Erika said that she believed otherwise, and that it was evident that God brought this gift of healing. Praise God.


Above: Miki leading musical worship. I sometimes close my eyes and just listen. I am full of praise as I remember this once empty room that is now being filled with Hungarians voices praising God through song.


Above: Peti preached on our responsibility to not only proclaim God’s word, but also confirm the message that we preach through our faith and obedience to His voice. Hearing His voice is imperative if our testimony is to be received as true.

"Indeed, my plans are not like your plans, and my deeds are not like your deeds, for just as the sky is higher than the earth, so my deeds are superior to your deeds and my plans superior to your plans.” – Isa. 55:8-9 NET

Peti said, “God has given us His Word, His Holy Spirit and enabled us with Spiritual gifts. He has given us everything that we need in order to discover His will. God is waiting for you to seek Him and His will from your heart.”


- Church member Gábor lost his job last week and is seeking work. Please pray for God’s provision.

- Elianna and Benjamin are sick with Strep (Scarlet Fever). This sickness was confirmed at the doctors office today. Thankfully they are not in any pain and the sickness was caught in time to treat effectively. Please pray for complete healing.

- Wisdom in team development and strategy planning. As summer comes to an end, our team is gearing up through prayer and discussions to plan our next steps in Church planting. Please pray for unity, and that we would all hear and understand God’s will for our team.

- Teammate Brenda will be applying to extend her residency permit. Please pray that God would help her through this complicated process and that she might receive a five year permit.
