Sylvia, one of our church leaders came up with a wonderful idea!
She had begun making jars of jam (jelly for American readers) for people in need. She knows that many Hungarians have little to offer financially but many do have fruit gardens and could easily donate fruit.
These jars of jam will be used to help feed children in Romania and indeed help needy people here in Hungary!
If you look closely at the jar you will see the logo of the Free Methodist church on the front and a sticker on the lid showing what fruit was used to make the jam. Sylvia wants people to taste the sweetness of Christ in her offering!
Please pray with us that the local church would respond positively and help with this wonderful endeavour. Please pray for Sylvia as she continues to follow God and seeks to live a life full of the Holy Spirit.
Those of you who regularly follow our ministry will know much of what we do. Church planting in Győr. Discipleship. Leading Bible studies. Preaching. MOPS (mothers of pre-schoolers). Marriage counselling. PTSD counselling. Helping to further develop ministry across Europe, particularly in Hungary, Romania and Ukraine but also to a lesser extent in Belgium, France and Spain. Raising support for those in need. Anti-trafficking. Ministry to children in orphanages. I genuinely believe it would be nearly impossible for us to do more.
Sadly, our support has dropped significantly in 2019. Two churches who were supporting us have dropped their support for us (not because of any issues with us but because of their own church financial situations). We are hoping that other churches who have been supporting us will renew their commitments to us.
At the moment we are currently at 32% of our yearly needs. I believe that this will increase significantly as churches renew their commitments to us, however we still need new supporters. Would you and/or your church consider supporting us?
So what do we use this support for? It is used to pay for all our ministry related costs (travel, food, support to the needy, phone bills, items such as Bibles etc). Without your partnership, we struggle to minister. This is truly a partnership. Your prayers and support enable us to serve God in Győr, Hungary and across Europe. Not all are called to go to the mission field, but all are called to be involved in reaching the lost and supporting us allows you to partner in spreading the Good News!
