Above: We continue to rent out the local middle school’s gym for volleyball every Friday night. This is a great way to continue friendships with people like Timi (yellow) who’s children regularly attend Miki’s Bible classes in school and our summer VBS every year. Getting together on Friday night also gave us another opportunity to invite families to our Saturday “Játszóház” Children’s Outreach.




Above: Timi (pink scarf) helping her son with Saturday’s craft. We praise God that around 35 kids attended, many of whom also regularly attend Miki’s Bible classes in school. For some of the teens in our church who are now baptized believers (and helped serve with us today), this was their first exposure to the Gospel many years ago. We hope that the seeds of the Gospel that we continue to sow through Bible club and these Saturday Outreaches will take root in a new generation of Hungarians.

Above: Miki leading some fun songs with the kids that also teach important truths about God. Niki, Kira and Erika helped the kids by showing various motions to the songs.






Above: As is our custom, Dezső prays for the children before then go to a separate room for Sunday School.


Above L to R: Jozsi, Levente and Győző catching up before service. Jozsi and Leventi are from the town of Jászfényszaru (half an hour drive away). Almost half of our seats on Sunday were filled with others who also commuted to join us from Jászfényszaru. Jánós, who is mature in his faith, has led many of them to Jesus, and currently leads a Bible study in their small town. It seems as if God is using our local body to build these new believers up and encourage others to pursue the callings God is giving them as followers of Jesus. One from Jászfényszaru shared with me, “I dream of having a church like this in Jászfényszaru! I’m praying and hoping that God would send someone to do it.” I then replied, “Why not you?” I then shared the story of church member Dezső’s journey from becoming a Christian years ago to now serving as a teaching pastor in our body. I look forward to seeing what our small part will be in helping this growing body in Jászfényszaru plant a church. Praise God for his sovereignty in bringing us together!


Above: God continues to soften Gyula’s heart (baseball cap above). Gyula has been attending our Thursday night youth mentoring meeting and also church every Sunday. He admits that when he first came to know us, he wasn’t very interested in God but has since changed. In Thursday night’s meeting, when the teens were asked what they were ‘up to’ last week, Gyula replied, “I’ve been reading the Bible and studying English.” After worship service on Sunday, Gyula came to me and began asking about Baptism. This gave me an opportunity to share the Gospel and challenge him to consider the claims of Jesus and to make a decision to put his faith in Him. Praise God for continuing to draw Gyula to HImself!


Please pray for our team as we travel to the small town of Heréd tomorrow.
God has opened a door for us to share the Gospel with a network of families that had seen our concert and crafts in a previous community event in Heréd. We have also visited this town twice a year with our Evangelistic puppet show in their public school. We have an amazing opportunity to hold a small group discussion/study that has been organized by a parent from this town. Please pray for God’s Spirit to open their eyes to God’s truth and to draw them all to Jesus Christ, the Savior.
