Kathy and I had a very busy and very fun few days of ministry. We spent a lot of time in both Győr and Veszprém and are seeing some incredible growth! Here are some highlights from the past few days.
Gerry had the privilege of leading Bible study on Friday afternoon in Győr and them connecting with some of our team members who are fighting human trafficking. Sadly, a lot of those involved are currently ill with the flu, but it was a blessing to spend time as a group and learn more about ways to fight trafficking. The Director of the Set Free Movement was our guest.
On Saturday, both Kathy and I drove to Veszprém. First, we worshipped with and preached at our small international church group and afterwards met we an offshoot of that group, which are the international students who have begun to reach out in their student community. They are worshipping together every Sunday morning at 8am, handing out tracts to fellow students, planning evangelization in Veszprém and are on fire for God!!! Our meeting Saturday evening was a planning meeting for how we can support and love them. They reported that one student came to Christ last week through this ministry! Praise God!
Sunday at 8am, Esther lead worship, Nils preached and I served the Lord’s supper. Enjoy the short video!
At 10 am, we were the guests of the Veszprém Christian Fellowship and I had the privilege of preaching. It is a wonderful church group. Very friendly, kind and such moving worship! They kindly invited us to lunch, which allowed for good conversations.
After lunch, we drove to Győr and helped set up church. Pastor Sylvia did a great job of leading the service and I had the privilege of preaching for a third time this weekend (all different sermons by the way). Sylvia and I share birthdays which are very close together and the church blessed us by singing to us 🙂
All in all it was a good weekend. I can be honest and say it is time for a rest. Very recent trips into war-torn Ukraine to bring aid and medical care, overseeing work in Hungary that is growing and connecting with ministry partners in Romania (all in the last two weeks) mean the coming week of vacation are needed! Kathy has been very busy in helping with translation work, preparing for our upcoming camp at children’s home and connecting with people. Please pray we enjoy rest!
