I was blessed today to lead a worship service in Veszprém. Veszprém is a small city not far from the Lake Balaton. It has a large foreign student community as many people come here to study at the excellent Pannonia University.
A member of our Győr church is from Ethiopia and he told me of a friend of his in Veszprém who was looking for a church to worship in. Then began a period of prayer and searching. Another church member told me of the Veszprém evangelical Christian Fellowship (an independent church) who might be open to a potential partnership. I began communication with them and found them to be a people truly desirous of reaching the lost with the Gospel. After a number of meetings in person and online they very kindly invited me to began an English language service for these students.
Today we gathered to worship God. A small grouo of men and women from Brazil, England, Ethiopia, Ghana and Ireland. Worship was simple but I felt the Holy Spirit present with us.
Please join with us in prayer as we look at ways to reach both the Hungarian and foreign communities here in Veszprém. We want to the Lord to be glorified and to see lives transformed. Please pray for these students far from home. Please pray for the Veszprém evangelical Christian Fellowship as they serve God and love His people.
