Salt and Light – April 15

Greetings from Debrecen,

God is faithful! I love the Hebrew culture and how they take the time to remember the faithfulness of God by sharing stories in the Bible and through their holidays. It reminded me of how quickly I often forget the times that God has been faithful. I have been convicted about writing these things down and the stories of His faithfulness to remind myself and family that when times are difficult God is faithful. We have the Bible which is full of them, but it is good to be reminded of it in our lives.

Last week we had a good visit to the Tomato farm and God gave Darrel an opportunity to talk with our friend “K” about spiritual things. We also had the opportunity to help out a nearby camp called Dorcas that hosts different camps this summer, including a camp for 310 down syndrome children. This is unheard of in Hungary! Darrel had the opportunity to preach at the International Church in Debrecen and it was such a blessed time. As I looked around, I saw people from Asia, Africa, India and Hungary all worshiping God. I think it is a small taste of what Heaven will be like.

Please continue to pray:

  • God will use Dorcas to be a place where people meet God and know how special they are, and for those who will be serving there this summer.
  • God would continue to open “K’s” heart to the possibility of a personal relationship with God.
  • God would speak to “J” in a dream and that it would cause him to know and trust God.
  • “A,” a student from Iran, has been delayed in his schooling and will be around for another year. Pray that he will grow in his relationship with God and that he would have a hunger for God’s word.
  • The University students as they begins exams and prepare for their finals.
  • A young boy at the Roma church gave his life to Jesus and another girl made her decision to follow Christ public last Tuesday. Pray that they will not be distracted from knowing Jesus and growing in their relationship with Him.
  • Sophia would have God’s peace and be able to get caught up in school.
  • We would have the courage to walk by faith and not by sight.

Thank you so much for your prayers,

One of His servants,
