Month of Prayer Day 30: Békásmegyer

Today let’s pray for Békásmegyer, a neighborhood in Budapest’s District III.  Consisting of more than 40,000 people within 2 square miles, there is a real need for a church plant in the area.  IMB Budapest personnel Monte and April Baker and children recently moved to Békásmegyer with the goal of starting a group that will grow into a new church.  Békásmegyer on Wikipedia   /  Posts about Békásmegyer

  • Pray that God will open the doors for a church plant in Békásmegyer.
  • Intercede that the Bakers will find persons of peace that will help open up relationships in the area and national partners to serve alongside in a new ministry there.

Today let’s pray for Daniel & Rachel Block and their young son, Nehemiah, who moved to Hungary in September of 2018 to serve as church planters.  The Blocks currently live in Székesfehérvár, where they are studying the very interesting and difficult Hungarian language. Székesfehérvár on Wikipedia

  • Pray for diligence in language study for Daniel and Rachel, specifically that they would learn to share the gospel quickly and effectively in Hungarian.
  • They are scheduled to take their first exam (A-2) in December of this year. This will be the real test of their language studies, so please be praying now that they would pass and move on to the next phase of language study.
  • Also lift up the Blocks as they begin the process of finding a kindergarten for Nehemiah to go to in September. Pray they would find the right one and that Nehemiah would flourish in this next season.

Month of Prayer Day 11: Monte and April Baker

Today let’s pray for IMB family Monte and April Baker and their four children, who live in the Békásmegyer neighborhood of Budapest’s District III.  Ask the Lord to give them health, encouragement, and many opportunities to share Christ.  Pray as they minister through the Turner Syndrome support group and work to develop a Mercy Ministries network across the nation of Hungary; ask the Lord bless them with a good national partner to work with in planting a new church in Budapest.  Békásmegyer is one area that needs a church plant.
