ESL and Puppet and Drama Day 3


Above: Brenda's English class Monday night with new student Kriszti (Chris-tee) seated far left. Kriszti is married and has two kids. She lives in the same neighboring town of Rozsaszentmarton as Dezső. Kriszti and her husband attended our Christmas Musical and afterwards sought to build a relationship with us. After hearing about our puppet and drama ministry, Kriszti took the initiative to try to get permission for us to enter the schools in Rozsaszentmarton. In the past, Janka has had no success in getting into their public schools because we are viewed as a sect. Kriszti recently spoke with a headmaster and was given the save negative response. In our English program she told Dezső, "I'm not giving up yet. Let's try to get permission to use the local community center." We are thankful for a Kriszti as a new student and new advocate for our ministry.

Last night in our ESL bible study Hugi shared about her problem sometimes understanding the Bible. She said that she sometimes reads a passage 6 or 7 times. I shared the importance of asking God to guide her in those times of devotion. I was also able to teach about the role of the body in her life who can teach and help her understand.

This morning before leaving for puppets, she had her Bible in hand and with great joy shared how God had personally spoken to her through His word last night. She said it was midnight when she came to psalm 139. She was brought to tears as the Lord revealed His real presence in her life. She said that she senses God helping her while serving in the puppet and drama ministry. She shared how she was never the type growing up who was able to do anything. When it came to being in front of people, she would tremble with fear. Now, in Christ, she is serving with us and sharing God's message of love and hope to a multitude of children. Praise God for saving Hugi and for blessing her with spiritual growth.

2 Corinthians 3:5-6
“Not that we are adequate in ourselves to consider anything as if it were coming from ourselves, but our adequacy is from God,  who made us adequate to be servants of a new covenant...”




Above: We returned to Hatvan today to visit three more public schools. The town was named Hatvan (literlay sixty) because it lies sixty kilometers from Budapest.


Above: After our first show we noticed that Miki's tire was almost flat from a slow leak. Thankfully we had time to stop at a gas station in between shows to temporarily fix the problem.


Above: Our second stop at one of Hatvan's preschools.


Above: The kids payed close attention to the show. They screamed at the top of their lungs in one part of the show, as they tried to warn a sleeping guard dog that a fox was steeling eggs from the farm. When Janka began to talk about Easter and believing in Jesus after the show, all the kids began shouting, "I believe in God, I believe in God..." We hope that these kids will truly grow in their understanding of Him and put their faith in Jesus throughout life.

Above: After today's presentations, we met at our house and packaged magazines, CDs and tracts to be distributed throughout the week to students and teachers. Thank you for praying for us! Everything went very smooth today and we were encouraged. Please see the end of my last post for ways that you can continue to pray.
