What an amazing day!
We were greeted today by our translator, Elissa Bella (Isabella) carrying two boxes of zucchini bread which she had baked the evening before. Even those who don’t like zucchini bread thought it was the best they had ever had. One of the translators today was Dori; she had worked with Awe Star when it first came to Hungary. What a joy it was to see Walker and Dori working side by side after all of these years.
Even though witnessing in this culture is difficult, we saw a young man come to the Lord at our second presentation of the gospel today. We rejoice that God is using this team! This afternoon we met with three men who do street evangelism. Lory was a high ranking officer in the military who taught soldiers the art of killing. At 44 years old, he came to a saving knowledge of Christ, and is now preaching and reaching people on the streets of Hungary, Another man - Adam - was a church planter, and then there was the “Wildman Terry!” Born in the slums of Nottingham, raised fighting on the street, and covered in tattoos, Terry spent time in prison for stabbing more than one person. Terry found Christ late in life, and carrying a banjo, the man now proclaims what Christ has done for him, the top of his voice. He was excited to dance with your students the “Cupid Shuffle.” And to top it off, he is 77 years old. Again, we saw more people come to Christ.
During the day we felt the Lord leading us to a fagy stop, where we got to experience some of the most unusual flavors of ice cream…Chocolate Lavender, Raspberry Mint, Strawberry Ginger, Earl Gray, and Green tea. The students are doing well as they are excited about doing Jesus’ Ministry and can’t wait for tomorrow to come. Continue to pray for us as we stand on a street corner proclaiming that Jesus is the way.
