This morning we were blessed to travel to the city of Veszprém about an hour and a half south of Győr. We are at the beginning of a new ministry with foreign students in Veszprém. Several students from Africa desire a worship service in English and we will be holding one every month. We are beginning a partnership with a local church in Veszprém (Evangéliumi Keresztény Gyülekezet – Evangelical Christian Fellowship). The students are being encouraged to join in worship every Sunday, so they can be in fellowship and strengthened in their faith. The local church were very kind and welcoming to them and will allow us to use their space for the monthly English language worship services for the foreign students.
After worship, Elizabeth, Kathy, Keresa, Shadrach and myself enjoyed a great meal and discussion. Coming from Ethiopia and Kenya they are enjoying discovering life in Hungary and Europe but have been missing worship. They have vision for a church that will reach the foreign students and also reach people across Veszprém. Please pray for them and the hope of what could be!
In the afternoon, myself and Kathy were back in Győr for worship. Bianka and Sarah led worship wonderfully and the Sylvia preached a great message with assistance from Aron and Klaudia. Next week we look forward to baptizing Orsi. Please pray for her this week as she prepares.
The Lord continues to bless this ministry. With work in Budapest, Győr, Pécs and now Veszprém in Hungary (along with a new possibility in Szeged) we are thankful to Him for His faithfulness. Please pray for us that we would have wisdom and strength to do all that we can to fulfill our small role.
