Month of Prayer Day 22: Nagykanizsa English camps

Paul and Tena Brock of the IMB Western Hungary Team ask that we pray with them for the June 24-28 and July 1-5 intensive English outreach camps that will be taking place in Nagykanizsa. Preparations are going on now both on-site in Hungary and in the US as volunteers prepare to teach English lessons and share their testimonies with students.

  • Pray that preparations and logistics will go smoothly.
  • Ask the Lord to bring students to the camps full of enthusiasm to improve their language skills and with hearts ready to receive the message of the love of Christ.

More info about Nagykanizsa on the city’s Wikipedia page.  Join the Brocks’ prayer team by requesting updates through the Western Hungary Team contact form.

Month of Prayer Day 14: Baptist Academy English Classes

Today let’s pray for the English classes IMB personnel are helping to teach at the Baptist Academy in Budapest.  They are taking place Tuesday and Wednesday evenings through the end of May, and are a partnership ministry with the Baptist Theological Seminary.

  • Give thanks for this opportunity to help students prepare for language exams required for graduation, and to serve alongside some very hardworking Hungarian language teachers. This is allowing our workers to spend time both with Hungarians preparing for ministry and also with other community members who need help with their language skills. Good spiritual conversations have been taking place from week to week.
  • Pray that the Kingdom will be built up, and that strengthened relationships with the Baptist Union and its next generation will lead to valuable partnership ministry throughout the coming years.

Month of Prayer Day 9: Nagykanizsa English students

Today let’s pray for the ministry Paul and Tena Brock have in Nagykanizsa among the 35 students who are coming to them regularly for English lessons.  Along with improving their language skills, these friends are learning biblical truth about God and experiencing the love of Christ through interacting with the Brocks.

  • Pray that the students will come to know the Lord and become wholehearted disciples and disciplers of others.

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.

 

English Bible studies to begin

There’s an exciting development in the Debrecen area!  Debrecen Baptist Church will soon be providing English Bible studies twice a month.  There are quite a few people who speak English since this is a university town with a lot of international students, and there are also some pretty big industries here. Hungarians who want to improve their language skills will also be interested.

Debrecen Baptist Church and partnering workers are sponsoring English-language Bible studies every 1st and 3rd Monday at 6:30 pm, beginning May 6.  For those who use Facebook, learn more on the English Bible study page.

We aren’t personally serving in this new ministry but definitely want to raise awareness and prayer for it!  When our own work schedules allow we look forward to taking part and helping however we can.

Pray that the Bible studies will be a blessing to both believers and to seekers, and that the Word will impact lives and draw people to the Lord. Lift up those who are organizing and serving in the ministry, including national believers from Debrecen Baptist, Jon & Amanda Good (Global Servants to Hungary with American Baptist International Ministries), and others.
