Monday update

Praise God, the protests over the weekend did stay peaceful! We’re very thankful that although large crowds did gather, things did not get out of hand.  Organizers say that protests will continue, so please keep praying for the nation of Hungary.  Ask that God will use this somehow to His glory…He is wonderfully able to do that.

Prayer needed for Hungary today

Our adopted country is in a very unsettling time, and we ask that you pray with us.  Mass protests are planned for today in Budapest and in other cities across the country:

As you pray, please ask that God will move in the hearts of the people and that protests will remain non-violent.

Salt and Light – April 7

Greetings from Debrecen,

God is faithful and His work continues. Thanking God for a group that meets for English worship, community and encouragement. God is providing for Arianna by giving her the opportunity to serve as an RA. I am in awe of how God has provided for her to attend University. We are thankful for the opportunity to spend the day with “K” and other family members who are not believers. God has still given us favor in the lives of our lost friends “D,” “G,” “J,” and “K.”

Please pray for:

  • This Sunday the Hungarian people will elect a new prime minister and seats in the Hungarian National Assembly. Pray for a peaceful election and that people will vote and accept the results of the election.
  • The time we will spend with “K” and family. We would share the love of Christ and the Good News with them
  • “D’s” heart would be open to God, he is kind of discouraged right now.
  • Sophia would be able to get caught up in school without being stressed.
  • God would put His desires in Abigail’s heart for the things that He would like for her to do after she graduates from high school next year.
  • God would give us the courage to walk by faith and not by sight.

Thank you so much for praying for us!

One of His servants,

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].
