Thursday Multiplication

Above L to R: Gabi S., Zoli, Todd and Milán (tonight's teen Bible study). Today, I was glad to have my friend/teammate Todd visit from Budapest. Every year we partner with Todd's focus group team as they organize and carry out a summer English evangelistic camp. Zoli (above) was saved in that camp last year and was recently baptized in Petőfibánya. We had a fruitful discussion as we continue to study the book of Colossians. After the study Gabi said, "These meetings are just too short!" Afterwards, he asked if we could meet again for discipleship. I am so thankful for the hunger that God is putting in these men for fellowship in Christ.

Above L: Miki's VCR refused to play the Jesus film for small group. Dezső told me that they just couldn't get it to work-then Miki asked for Jesus' help in prayer and He answered! Praise God!

Other news:

This morning Miki called to give me encouraging news. One of the teenagers (Milán) that was saved recently has a grandmother that works in the pre-school. As Miki was dropping off his daughter Anna, Milán's grandmother told Miki how much she appreciated our relationship with her grandson Milán. She said we bring life and light into her day when we drop our kids off at pre-school. She went on to tell Miki the positive changes in Milán since he has met us.

“And all of us have had that veil removed so that we can be mirrors that brightly reflect the glory of the Lord. And as the Spirit of the Lord works within us, we become more and more like him and reflect his glory even more.” (II Cor 3:18 NLT)

Wednesday night Miki and I met with Dezső for worship practice and a Bible study on leadership. It is amazing to see the difference in Dezső as compared to one year ago. I can remember when Dezső was opposed to becoming 'part' of a local church. Now, he is the most faithful member of our body. God is transforming his thinking through His word. Last night it was a joy to hear him pray for the salvation of Petőfibánya and for God's blessing to be upon our church. He said, "It's clear how much I have been blessed by this fellowship and it is clear how much this community needs this church." Praise God for leading Dezső on a steady path of transformation and blessing.
