Hathcocks’ prayer update excerpts

Greetings from Debrecen!

Thankful for God’s provision this week in so many ways. Last Sunday we had lunch with Z, who has an amazing story of God’s provision and healing. God spared her life from a tragic car accident that took her mom and several siblings. God has healed her heart and now she is a social worker who serves the elderly.

Last Monday was awesome with our discipleship group, as each one of the ladies shared their testimonies; Darrel, with the guys, shared the Gospel with a young man who was lost who came to the group. It was neat to hear their stories and how God is at work in their lives. I continue to make progress with PT so we wait and see as I still have some cramping and pain that I do not understand.

Darrel gave his final on Wednesday and was encouraged by their responses. He also invited his students to come to our home, and several did last night. We were so excited to talk with three students from Israel. We were surprised how many Israeli people speak Russian!  We also had a good conversation with a young lady who is Hungarian. The students are still in the midst of finals and we were able to hear of their struggles with teachers and grading.

It was also a lot of fun to share Christ during the training this week and to gather some more tools for discipling students. God is at work among students and it is exciting to see what He is doing.

Please pray:

  • Students, as they take exams, that God will give them strength and wisdom and that they will turn to Him in their time of need.
  • Monday night group, that the students will have the courage to share with others and to keep their eyes on Jesus no matter what happens this week.
  • The girls will finish well,  Abigail and Sophia will finish school this week. Arianna wants to finish a difficult class this week and will have a few more to finish up over the next month. Pray that she will not be discouraged but God will give her a new motivation. (Praise! Arianna did great on her SAT, thank you for praying)
  • Healing for our family. I have been sick for two weeks with allergies and a head cold and now several of the girls have the same thing.
  • Next Sunday we will go on vacation! Pray that it will be a restful and refreshing time and that we will be attentive to God’s voice. We would have a great time together as a family.
  • Monday many Hungarians will celebrate Pentecost. Several evangelical churches will have evangelistic services at the stadium in Debrecen. Pray for people to know Jesus as their Savior and Lord. 

Thank you so much for your prayers! I will update everyone when we return.

His servant,
