Hathcocks’ prayer update excerpts

Greetings from Debrecen!

We hope you have a blessed Christmas! This has been an interesting week. God allowed one of our friends in the states to join Him after her battle with cancer. We will miss her. You can pray for her family as they grieve.

We were blessed to spend time with some friends who are pastoring a church in a nearby town where we walked through the Christmas market and found the best hamburger joint. It is truly hard to find a good hamburger in this part of the world. Darrel gave his final exam. God is at work in the lives of the students in his class! (more later) Thank you for praying!

The girls went with me to Budapest for PT and we had a lot of fun Christmas shopping. We ended up wondering into the Jewish quarter of Budapest where the 2nd largest synagogue is located. There are also two Orthodox synagogues located nearby. The girls had their first taste of hummus. Yum! We had our last coffee house for the semester on Thursday. We are looking forward to celebrating Christmas with some other M’s who are from a different part of the world. Also G. (our Jewish friend) and her boyfriend, her brother, and J. will also be joining us.

Please pray:

  • Our friends who will be joining us will be refreshed and encouraged in their service for the Lord.
  • Christmas day as we share the story of Jesus with our guests. They will see His love through our lives and desire to know Jesus.
  • Peace for us as we anticipate the packing and preparing for when we return for our stateside time in January.
  • God would direct the hearts of our Monday night group and that they would see who it is that they are to invest in and to disciple.
  • Gary and Carolyn Miller as they minister to Gary’s mother who is very sick. Pray that God would give them wisdom and strength. 

Thank you so much for praying for us!  We are so looking forward to our time in the states (28 more days.)

One of God’s servants,
