"God showed how much he loved us by sending his one and only Son into the world so that we might have eternal life through him. This is real love—not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins. Dear friends, since God loved us that much, we surely ought to love each other. No one has ever seen God. But if we love each other, God lives in us, and his love is brought to full expression in us."
-1 John 4:9-12
We are here in Budapest, Hungary! This trip is significant for this team as Awe Star began in Hungary 25 years ago and here we are today to continue proclaiming Jesus to the people of Hungary. As Walker Moore, one of our country coordinators has said, "It is like going home to family." This year, our focus is Awe Star Family, reaching the globe. This summer, we have been reminded and united to love one another as Christ loves us. People will remember how well you treat them, more than what you teach them, and Team Hungary is committed to this purpose this summer!
You would be proud of these students as they effortlessly moved through the airports, getting to the gates even early (because we at Awe Star are not just on time, but we strive to be early!). Even on the planes, some of your students began to engage with people around them, building opportunities to be willing witnesses, sharing the Gospel to the ears of those who would listen. Students will be be given the opportunity to call home and check in as we continue this journey in love together! Looking forward to keeping you updated and we cherish your prayers! Please join us in prayer as we settle in and begin ministry together in this beautiful country!
Körsönöm! (Thank you!)
