Month of Prayer Day 31: Gary and Carolyn Miller

Photo of Gary and Carolyn MillerPray today for Gary and Carolyn Miller, IMB personnel based in the city of Debrecen. (Debrecen on Wikipedia)  Gary serves as Team Leader for the IMB Budapest Team and the Eastern Hungary Team, and Carolyn is the Team Prayer Coordinator.  Ask God to grant them His wisdom in ministry, as well as daily strength, health, and safety as they travel.

Current primary ministries that need your prayer are a church plant in the town of Berekfürdő in partnership with the Karcag Baptist Church, and the continuing development of a gardening outreach ministry, the “Master’s Gardeners” in Debrecen.  (Posts about the Berekfürdő church plant and the gardening program.)

Month of Prayer Day 26: Tiszafüred Church Plant

Today’s prayer request is for the Tiszafüred church plant, a part of the Karcag Baptist church circle in eastern Hungary.  As you pray for this small group, now led entirely by nationals, ask for continued growth both in numbers and in spiritual growth.  Ask the Lord to strengthen them and guide them in how to reach out to their families and community with the love of Christ.

Month of Prayer Day 12: Agóra Corvin church

Pray for the Agóra Corvin church in Budapest.  Planted by the Shaws and Pastor Dávid Hamar, the church is now totally Hungarian-led and serves as mother church to the Agóra Gellért church plant.  Pray for Pastor Dávid and his family, the members, and those in the area to whom they are ministering.  Ask that the Lord will grant them growth, continued unity, vision, deep discipleship, and outreach to the lost.  Ask that they will not grow weary in well doing.

Month of Prayer Day 6: Debrecen Baptist English ministries

Bible in Hungarian and English

Bible in Hungarian & English

Today we ask that you pray for Debrecen Baptist Church English ministries, including new English-language Bible studies scheduled for 1st & 3rd Mondays STARTING TODAY, May 6. (English Bible Study on Facebook). We’re very thankful for these new ministries, as there are a lot of English-speaking people in the city…this is a university town with students from all corners of the globe, and English is the common language.  The number of international industries opening up here is also growing, which brings in people from many other countries.

Pray for the Hungarian believers from Debrecen Baptist who are serving in the English-language ministries; also for our friends Jon and Amanda Good and their beautiful family, who are partnering with Debrecen Baptist Church and Hungarian Baptist Aid, and are very involved in the English-language work. (The Goods on Facebook)

Debrecen Baptist Church’s website is in Hungarian, but you can view photo albums at http://www.dbgy.hu/egyebek/keptar by choosing the various folders listed.  There are also a lot of photos and videos on their Facebook page.

  • Lift up the Bible studies and other English-language ministries, that Gospel impact will be had on those touched by them, and that many will be drawn to Christ.
  • English-speaking people in Hungary are a very mobile group, so pray that as they travel and perhaps return to their home countries they will carry the Good News with them.

 

Month of Prayer Day 3: Berekfürdő mission point

The prayer request for today is for the Berekfürdő mission point, a partnership work of IMB Eastern Hungary personnel and the Karcag Baptist Church.  The group is struggling to grow, partly due to the fact that it’s been unable to find a meeting place that’s consistently available. It’s also only open for the group’s use at a time that makes it basically impossible for most working people to come.  Pray that the group will be encouraged, and that God will supply the right place that will be conducive to growth. Ask that new relationships will be formed with more people in the community, and that hearts will be softened toward the gospel.
