An incredible camp at the orphanage!


This past week we held a five day camp at the orphanage in Gyor. We received permission to work with the kids on both floors (each floor belongs to a different government department). From 9am to midday Monday through Friday we sang worship songs, made crafts, had Bible messages and dramas, played football and had lots of fun! Overall we served 20 kids.
A group of seven people from Batavia, New York State    www.northgate.fmc.co m joined us and made the camp possible. Together we partnered in helping these kids come to know more about the love of God. We are very grateful to them for their excellent work! Also thanks to Kathy for her very hard work in communicating with both government organisations, translating and hosting the team. Nobody I knows works as tirelessly and selflessly as she does. Special thanks to Csilla, Zsuzsi, Katica, Zsolti, Gabi and Adam for being great volunteers!!!!

On Friday the team enjoyed lunch with the kids at the orphanage. I had a lunch meeting with the Irish ambassador to Hungary and the deputy mayor of Gyõr which was productive and has opened up some possible new doors to ministry in the future. However I think the kids, team and local volunteers had more fun then me 😀

These little ones are in real danger from those who intend evil. Please join us in prayer that lives would be transformed and that the Lord would keep them safe in his hands.

Preaching in Northgate, Batavia, New York State

Recently I had the great privilege of preaching at the Northgate Free Methodist Church, Batavia, New York State.

Pastor Vern Saile and his team very kindly hosted me and I enjoyed speaking a total of five times on both a Saturday evening and on Sunday morning also. I spoke from Ruth chapter three and my focus was on going, protecting and giving. Please feel free to watch the video. If you are looking for a sermon series to watch at home I strongly recommend you look around at the various sermon series that the Northgate church have on their site. Pastor Vern is an excellent preacher who communicates the love of God beautifully.

The highlight of the weekend for me was on Saturday evening when two people were baptized. One was a lady in her mid-fifties who has an inoperable brain tumor. She had to climb into the baptismal font with the help of others, her public demonstration of her faith in Christ took great effort physically on her behalf. I and many others were very deeply moved. Please remember Rosemary in your prayers
