New stage of ministry

Thank you to all of our friends who have been praying for us over the last months even though we haven’t been staying in touch very well (sorry!)  We have been going through some difficult things in life.  Praise the Lord for His mercy and faithfulness no matter what life brings!

We are back in Debrecen, working on refreshing our language skills and doing a big reassessment of demographics and ministry–where are people in Hungary now spiritually, where is outreach now being done by others, where are the places most needing ministry started, etc.  All of this information is useful in prayerful consideration of where and how to focus time and resources of the IMB Eastern Hungary and Budapest teams over the coming years.

We have been meeting with a lot of national partners, leaders of other organizations, and individuals that we have worked with in the past.  Please pray for us as we learn and as we make plans for strategic ministry.  We want to clearly hear the Lord’s voice and follow His leading in everything, so that we will walk on His path, not our own.

“In their hearts humans plan their course, but the LORD establishes their steps.” Proverbs 16:9 (NIV)
