On Thursday we traveled to the city of Jászberény for one of our last Easter puppet performances. This school cares for those with various disabilities and we had a large group consisting of all ages.

Above: The boy sitting in the arms of a teacher above moved me with compassion. I approached him after the show with a deep desire to pray for him. As I held his hand I asked his teacher what the redness was on his nose and forehead. She said that he often hits himself. There were bruises all over his body. As he writhed around in her lap I saw that his lower back was also bruised. I asked her if I could pray for him. She said, “Yes, we’ve tried so many things, I just hope there is some solution.” I brought Szabi to Jesus in prayer for deliverance from this evil and torturous influence in his life. I would ask you also to pray for Szabi, who brought to my mind the story of Mark 9:21 where a father brings a boy suffering from childhood to Jesus for healing. The Biblical account has the father saying to Jesus, “‘It has often thrown him into fire or water to destroy him. But if you are able to do anything, have compassion on us and help us.’ Then Jesus said to him, ‘If you are able?' All things are possible for the one who believes.’” Join me in praying for Szabi’s deliverance because all things are possible for those who believe in Jesus.


Above: After the show some of the kids were kind enough to give us various handmade crafts as gifts.

For now, the stage is packed and tucked away in my basement until our last show at the end of April in Gyöngyös. We appreciate your prayer support and experienced God’s answers over these past few weeks of ministry. This had to be one of the best years as far as larger groups of kids staying attentive when we began sharing the Gospel at the end of the show. Even today, the principal commented on how amazed she was to see the full spectrum of ages participating and paying attention throughout the show. God was gracious to protect us as we traveled through treacherous conditions and sustained all of our technical equipment. He protected our team from sickness and injury and we rejoice in His mercy poured out on us and on these kids this Easter.

I’ve put together a little video with highlights of our Easter Puppet Ministry that you can view below:
