Hungary 4 Him: Katelyn’s February update

March is here and the sun is shining! It’s been a few weeks since the sun has shone here. I pray that you are doing well and are enjoying some sunshine, too. I hear Oklahoma needs rain so I am praying God brings it! I have just under 3 months left of one-on-one lessons with students. These times are precious, as it is my main outreach with sharing the gospel with Hungarians. I am trying to remember that each moment counts and to cherish these moments that I have with my students. The sickness bug has been going around here so I haven’t had a full week of lessons since the New Year started.

I cherish your prayers. Keep them coming! If there is any way I can pray for you please let me know.

Love,
Katelyn

We had so much snow in February! I loved every minute of it. As I write this , the snow is beginning to melt and the sun is shining! Spring is most likely headed our way. With the snow, I was reminded how Christ washes our sins white as snow. With Spring on the way, I am reminded of new life in Christ. We will be able to see it all around us. This also brings a heavy burden to my heart. I so badly want to see Hungarians have new life in Christ. I am still working with “G” and “T” (sisters ) each week. However, “G” has told me she doesn’t want anything to do with God. She is still coming to lessons and to Bible study on Friday nights. I believe that God can change her heart and give her a heart for Him. “T” is still not open to talking about where she stands in believing in something more or not. My prayer is that they will both come to know the Lord before I leave but I know that it will happen in God’s timing.

Prayer Requests

  • Pray for House Church. We have been having a steady number of 20-30 people each week. However, we still aren’t having anyone step up to help lead and begin the transition process from American teaching to Hungarian teaching.
  • Team Unity
  • We have had a steady group of 5-7 students coming for Youth Group on Fridays. Pray that their hearts would be open to hearing the Word and that they would bring their friends.
  • I am still teaching 14 students (15 hours) each week. Pray for the students I am working with. Tuesdays I work with “R,” “J,” and “A.” Wednesdays I have “G,” “L,” “P,” and “K.” Thursdays I am teaching “R,” “G,” and “G.” Fridays I have “G,” “M,” “T,” and “K.”
  • Please pray specifically for “T” and “G” to have softened hearts toward Him.
  • PRAISE! A boy named “B” came to know the Lord in the last few weeks! Pray for him as he begins discipleship with Meg.

Thank you for your support and prayers through my journey in Hungary.  If there is any way I can be praying for you, please let me know!
