What an amazing day! At 0830 the first people began to gather for the clothes distribution. All the tables were full and the volunteers in place.
At 0900 we opened the doors and about 350 people flooded in.
Over the course of the day approximately 1000 people received clothing for the winter months thanks to the generosity of Operation Orphan and the kindness of so many people in the U.K. Also the clothes that were stolen the previous night were returned, with the help of a little persuasion from me 🙂 Our God is good! By 4pm it was time to tidy up and prepare for the service at 6pm.
The evening was a wonderful success with about 80 people turning up. Members of the Operation Orphan team ministered through worship songs and testimony and Gerry preached on the need for a personal relationship with Christ.
The response was awesome! People asked for prayer, others asked if we could start a Bible study in their village (15 kilometres from us), some cried and others joined in the worship songs! We are humbled at how amazing our God is. Thank You Lord!
One personal highlight for me, was a former student of Kathys who volunteered to translate for the testimony time. We gave her a dual language (English/Hungarian) Bible as a gift and she was so excited that she asked all of us to write on the inside cover. Please pray for Nikki to come to know the Lord! Also please pray that we would be able to deepen relationships with the people of Táp and the surrounding villages.
The photos may be a little boring but the contents are answers to prayer!
Again this year Operation Orphan are coming to Hungary, and Kathy has been instrumental in helping organize it all for both Táp and Budapest. A total of 210 boxes (195 for Táp and 15 for Budapest) filled with shoes, winter coats, hats, gloves etc will be given out on Saturday October 19th to the very needy in our locality.
Please pray as we help host the English mission team, organize the clothes distribution, translate and most importantly that people would come to the worship service we will hold in the local school Saturday evening after the distribution of clothes. Gerry will preach a message focusing on the need for all to know Christ as their Lord and Saviour! Please pray with us Saturday at 6pm that people would come to the worship service and that the Holy Spirit would move amongst us!
One of the greatest challenges in ministry is the need to raise support. First and foremost we need your prayer support! Without your prayers our ministry will not be as effective. praying for us is a commitment in time and spiritual energy. However we also need financial support. Without adequate finances we will not be able to carry on ministry work in Táp, in Győr, in Hungary and indeed in Europe. Would you be willing to support us? I have just created a PayPal donate button which you can use safely to support our ministry if you so wish.
Thank you in advance for your prayers, love and generosity to us and this ministry!
