Farewell to Paul and Tena Brock

Paul and Tena BrockAfter many years of service, our friends, co-workers, and IMB Hungary Team Leaders Paul and Tena Brock retired in December of 2020 and returned to the U.S.

We are grateful for their obedience to the call of God on their lives and for how He has used them to touch so many people with the love of Christ.

Paul and Tena, you will be very missed — may God continue to bless and use you in the next stages of life!

 

“I thank my God every time I remember you. In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.”   Phil 1:3-6 (NIV)

This fall has flown by for us! As of September 20th, we have lived in Hungary for ONE year! We are so thankful for how the Lord has sustained us and challenged us in the last year! Thank you to all who have prayed for us this last year and continue to do so, we could not be here without the many prayers of God’s people….More on “The Moving Blocks” blog

Prayer Points:

  • Pray for us as we continue to acquire language and learn more about Hungarian culture.
  • Pray that we will not get sick as winter approaches and the temperature drops.
  • Pray for the people we have shared the gospel with, that God would bring them to faith.
  • Pray that we would not be discouraged.

 

European Peoples season of prayer

Stats show that about 99% of people across Europe aren’t yet born again believers, but God is moving, things are happening.  There is hope in Christ even when things seem to be pretty crazy in this world!

This summer has gone by so quickly! We have had the opportunity to travel and visit with many friends and colleagues that work in other parts of the world….More on “The Moving Blocks” blog

Prayer requests:

  • That we would have much focus and determination this fall as we prepare for our first language exam in December.
  • Pray for Nehemiah as he starts preschool on September 2nd! He will spend half days in a full Hungarian speaking preschool 5 days a week. Pray that he would make deep friendships and pray for his ability to continue learning a new language and culture in this season.
  • Pray we would entrust Nehemiah to the Lord, especially in this new season with lots of changes.
  • Pray for many opportunities to share and develop friendships with the lost at N’s preschool. This is a new window of opportunity for us to meet other parents and to build more relationships with others!

Month of Prayer Day 29: Lost Who Haven’t Heard

Cry out to the Lord for the many across this nation who’ve not heard the gospel–sadly, a large number have no local church that teaches biblical truth and have no born-again believer in their life. Ask that God will send someone with the message of Life, that they will repent and begin a daily walk with Jesus.  Intercede for them, that they will come into community with other believers who can disciple them, and that healthy new churches will be birthed in towns and villages all across the country.

“How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? 15 And how can anyone preach unless they are sent? As it is written: ‘How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!’” Romans 10: 14, 15
