Christmas Day in Újléta

We were very blessed to spend some time Christmas day with our brothers and sisters in Christ at the small Baptist church in Újléta, which is a little less than an hour’s drive from Debrecen.  Our good friend and ministry partner Eduárd Nitkovszki leads the service there about once a month, and he invited Gary to bring the message on Christmas.  The Lord knew what was needed and exactly when–as it turned out, Eduárd was getting sick and could barely speak, let alone preach!

Gary spoke on “Who is Jesus,” an in-depth look at who Christ is; he ended with the question, “Who is Jesus to you?”  It was an encouraging and yet challenging time of self-examination, as well as a wonderful celebration of God’s great gift of His Son, our Savior.

We were missing our family in the U.S. on Christmas, so it was a special blessing to be among the precious people in Újléta in such a loving, family atmosphere.  We both left feeling that they had blessed us much more than we had them!

Pray for the church in  Újléta, that they would be strengthened and encouraged, and that they would continue sharing the love of Christ with those in their community.
