Salt and Light – October 1

From IMB Team Hungary Updates

Greetings from Debrecen,

Thanking God for His unconditional love. Last week we said good bye to some friends from the States, and we continue to press on. The young lady we prayed for last week, “E,” did get the job! Yeah! Thankful for how God continues His work. This week we have two people from the States who will be teaching the apologetics course. Please pray for the pastor who planned on coming as well but his 19-month-old son was bitten by a copper head. Please pray that he will recover without any complications. Also one of the volunteers that did come cannot find his wallet. Praying that some honest person will find it and turn it in. I think God is really going to do something this week so pray for this equipping time.

Just a note. Yesterday the girls and I were on our way to meet Darrel and the guys from the States for dinner when we decided to get off at a different stop from the tram. When we got off I was thinking that we were early and what were we going to do, and when I looked up Darrel and the guys pulled up in the car at that exact moment. I know this is small, but God reminded me that His timing is perfect! I mean perfect. Be encouraged!

Please pray:

  • God would speak through Donnie and Andre as they teach this week at the apologetics conference. Pray that God would send the people who need to be there. Also as they go out during the day on Tuesday and Wednesday that they would be sensitive to the Holy Spirit and the appointments that He has for them to share their faith.
  • I learned that today is Nigerian Independence Day. Pray for the students from Nigeria that they would know the freedom that comes in Christ. The person I talked to said that corruption is one of the biggest problems facing his country.
  • “I,” a Hungarian young man, that he would keep making the right choices and that he would grow and depend on God more and more.
  • “G,” a medical student, as she faces discouragement, that she would see the hope she can have in a relationship with Jesus.
  • “C” is a basketball coach at the Reformed High school. Pray that she will be a light and will have opportunities to share her faith.
  • “N,” that she would make wise choices and God would give her a desire to know Him above all things.

Thank you so much for your prayers!

One of His servants,
