Our disappointments are God’s divine appointments!
We traveled to Eger a few days ago and a man dressed in traditional Hungarian clothes was interested in our drama. This man turned out to be one of the leaders in charge of a music festival traveling to different towns in Hungary. We have been praying for God to open doors to share the gospel in different parts of Hungary. Our God is faithful and He already had a plan before we even began praying about these doors to be opened. It did not take long for us to decide to commit to go to this music festival; God had a divine encounter in store.
This morning we traveled to Székesfehérvár (don’t ask me how to pronounce it!), which was by train for an hour and we already knew God had something prepared for us in this city. We arrived and ate lunch at a park while the team discussed what they were looking forward to in continuing ministry. The team was excited to see how the Lord would use this new opportunity. This new city. This music festival. The “random” invitation we got to go there.
We traveled to the town center where the festival was being held. We talked to the leader and he informed us that this was not just any music festival, but it is held annually by the Budapest Special Needs Foundation for special needs children and adults. We went into the theater where all the different groups were performing and waited off stage to share the drama. The full theater graciously greeted and applauded these students as they walked onto the stage with truth to share. The audience was at the edge of their seats by the end of the gospel presentation. They were captivated. And the team did the drama with so much passion as they glorified the Lord through it. After the final bow the students left the stage and spotlights in awe of how God has worked to bring us there. The leader then invited us to be guests at their private dinner for all the performers at the end of the day. We were delighted to have true Hungarian food!! It was delicious!!
Today we saw God work through the unknown, because we didn’t really know what this music festival was going to be, we were just trusting God to take us where He needed us. Today we shared the gospel with many people and shared His love with many children, adults, and families. God is faithful and He WILL provide opportunities as we seek Him.
To God be the glory now and forever!
