Isten Hozett (God has sent you),
This phrase means so much to this team as we continue to encounter the people of Hungary. The students have seen basic conversations grow into conversations with people seeing a need for God. One of the students today was expressing joy at just being able to pray for a man from Scotland. He was thinking about God in his life but choosing to live the way he had planned. As the team began sharing about how God sends people into our lives to bring us back to Himself, what are the chances that man from a completely different part of Europe would be in Budapest, Hungary, at the same time as a group of students from the United States who could help answer this dilemma? This man admitted to needing to seek truth in his life, and the team prayed fervently for him to come back to the Lord. We are thankful for this team of students and their willingness to share!
Over and over again today, the students have talked about the power of the Holy Spirit and how He intercedes. As conversations continued throughout the day, the students came back and expressed how amazed and in awe they were at the words God provided in conversation as the people responded. Team Eastern Europe began to share with people in a park near Forvam Ter and engaged with families, bike riders and dog walkers enjoying the day but was also able to share the greatest news today! One student wanted to share with a woman in the park. She did not understand English but watched the drama performed to a Hungarian track. The team went back a second time to talk to her, even with the language barrier, and gave her a tract to read. As the team was leaving the park, this woman was reading this tract but was also inspired by the team's commitment to come back and encourage her. We know that God's Word does not return void, and we are thankful for your continued prayers for divine encounters.
Thank you for supporting these willing witnesses of your students to come to Eastern Europe to engage with the seeking souls here from all over the world so Jesus' name will be proclaimed.
Please pray for our team as we will be leaving Budapest, Hungary, to begin traveling to Kaposvar and Pecs in southern Hungary in a few days! The team wants to continue in strength, being servants to the people of Hungary for the sake of the gospel.
Thank you for checking in with us and for your continued prayers. We love hearing from you all!
