Salt and Light – March 11

Greetings from Debrecen,

Thank you for praying for us and the people God brings into our lives. God’s continuing work…… Our friend “G” came to English worship even though it was at the end, she still had the courage to come and stay for the fellowship time. Yeah! We have also had some good conversations. Darrel had the opportunity to preach this morning among a group of believers/seekers meeting in a school. They have been meeting once a month and there are no evangelical churches in the area. God is opening doors in the schools through Hungarian Baptist Aid. Arianna made it safely to South Padre Island and will be there until Friday. So this week Spring has decided to arrive and we are all feeling the effects of the beginning of allergy season. We are thankful for the warmer weather and the coming of Spring.

Please pray:

  • Protection and divine appointments for Arianna and a group of about 50 students who will be sharing the gospel on South Padre Island this week. Asking God to open hearts and for students who are ready to give their lives to Jesus.
  • God’s continued work in “G.’s” life and more opportunities to share with her.
  • Our friend “B” has the opportunity to connect with some Christians in a new town that she has moved to, pray that her boss will give her time off work so she can meet with them. Also that she would see clearly God’s direction and plans for her.
  • Abigail and Sophia would be encouraged spiritually and that they would see God’s hand in their lives.
  • Healing for all of us as we are struggling with allergies and sickness.

Thank you so much for praying! We cannot tell you how much we value your prayers for us especially at this time.

Salt and Light – November 26

Greetings from Debrecen,

Hope you had a great Thanksgiving! Thank you so much for your prayers! God did an amazing work during our Thanksgiving celebration. I love the way He brings just the right people and how he connects them for His purposes and the encouragement that results from our fellowship with other believers. God’s ways are higher than our ways!

Sophia is making progress with school!  God continues to give me opportunities to influence “M.” Many of the University students are finishing up classes and preparing for their final exams. God continues to give Hungarian Baptists freedom and influence in the public schools. A new family is coming to work in one of the schools supported by the main Baptist church in town.

Please pray:

  • The Good family as they move this week to Debrecen that God would provide just the right place for them to live. They would have peace as they travel and that they would see God’s hand providing for them as they get settled.
  • The girls would be diligent as they study and have courage and peace at they tackle difficult subjects.
  • That Debrecen, Hungary would see the manifestation of the glory of  God!
  • University students as they prepare for exams that they would realize their need for God and how they can depend on Him.
  • Wisdom and strength for Joseph Steiner and his family as they lead Hungarian Baptist Aid and the opportunities God gives them to influence the lives of Hungarians and others.
  • Courage and strength for us to keep our eyes fixed on Jesus.

Thank you!

Hathcocks’ prayer update excerpts

Greetings from Texas,

God is on His throne in heaven! Thanking God for the blessing of seeing our former pastor Joseph from Debrecen in McKinney, Texas, of all places. God is using him in Hungary as he is one of the leaders of Hungarian Baptist Aid. We are getting ready to make a big pot of gulyas and invite a bunch of people over to our house on Monday. We are so thankful for how God is using our time here in Bonham.

Please pray:

  • Joseph and his wife, that God would give them strength and wisdom as they lead Hungarian Baptist Aid and the work that He is especially doing in the schools. That God would continue to raise up those who need to serve.
  • We would keep our eyes on Jesus and do the things He tells us to do.
  • The young people that we discipled in Hungary, they would continue to seek after God, desire to study His word and to invest in other people’s lives.

Also I would like to share a prayer request taken from “40 Days of Prayer for European People”:

I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world, you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world. John 16:33

Father, may your followers in Europe constantly be reminded that with you there is peace and that you have overcome the world. 

Thank you for praying for us!
