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)

Month of Prayer Day 23: Relationship-building

Real, loving relationships are so important!

  • Pray today for all of our missionary families as we build new relationships in our communities and continue to strengthen old ones.
  • Ask that we will be good listeners and true friends, and that our language and cultural skills will keep growing so that we can be good neighbors and truly share life with those around us.
  • Pray that God will lead us to “persons of peace” in neighborhoods who will welcome us and the gospel witness we bring, willingly serving as a gateway relationship into their family, neighborhood, or community.

Month of Prayer Day 22: Nagykanizsa English camps

Paul and Tena Brock of the IMB Western Hungary Team ask that we pray with them for the June 24-28 and July 1-5 intensive English outreach camps that will be taking place in Nagykanizsa. Preparations are going on now both on-site in Hungary and in the US as volunteers prepare to teach English lessons and share their testimonies with students.
