Month of Prayer Day 7: Pécs concert

The Singing Men of Texas have another concert today in Hungary, this time in the city of Pécs(Photos and more about the city on Wikipedia)

Praise God, so far on the tour there has been a wonderfully positive response to the gospel message in song and word!  Learn more on the Singing Men of Texas blog and their Facebook page.

  • Pray today for those who will be coming to the Pécs concert that do not know Christ, that their hearts will be open to receive the Good News and that they will joyfully respond to the follow-up over the days and months to come.
  • Pray for the Singing Men, for evangelist Michael Gott, the partnering church and national believers, and for all who are helping. Ask that all the logistics will go smoothly, and for health and safety for everyone.

Month of prayer – Day 24, denominational leaders

Today our prayer request is for denominational leaders as they guide the churches’ missions and outreach. Pray for wisdom and strength for them as they move boldly forward in training, encouraging, and setting a strong biblical example of evangelism, discipleship, and church planting.

As you pray, lift up in particular the President of the Hungarian Baptist Union, János Papp [Yaː’-nōsh Pŏp]; the General Secretary, Kornél Mészáros [kor’-neːl meː’-saː-rōsh]; and the Director of Missions, István Durkó [ēsht’-vŏn dur’-kō].

Grain Game camp coming soon to Tiszafüred

This little park in Tiszafüred is empty and quiet now, but next week there will be shouts of hilarity and bodies in motion as kids aged 10-15 take part in a Grain Game Bible camp!

Please start praying now, while camp invitations are being circulated, that young people will come whose hearts are already being prepared for the gospel message.  Pray that camp workers will have the energy–in spite of exhaustion and July heat–to creatively teach and lovingly share their lives with the kids who come.

Thank you for interceding for us and with us…to God be the glory!

Children’s program at the church plant

Kata using interactive teaching with the children

On Dec. 21st our good friend Kata provided a wonderful program for children at the church plant; it was also great for people of all ages who were there.  Kata is a missionary with the Hungarian branch of Evangelism Explosion for Kids, and she used interactive teaching, drama, and a handcraft to make a clear presentation of Gospel truth.

Praise the Lord for the Good News that was clearly shared!  Pray that the seeds that were sown will bear fruit in changed lives, to the glory of God.  Lift up the work of Kata and her co-workers with EE- Magyarország as they train workers and reach out to children and families.
