This week we held a three day summer camp at the orphanage in Győr where Kathy ministers on a weekly basis. It was a wonderful time with a real presence of the Holy Spirit. Our friends, Eric, Heidi, Calvin and Muriel Barnes along with another family friend, Kulcsár Nárcisz, ministered to the children in the home. Everyday the children enjoyed worship music, a Bible message based on the superheros of the Bible (Moses, David and Jesus), handcrafts, sports and snacks. Eric taught the message daily and led the sports with help from Calvin. Heidi and Muriel led the handcrafts, Kathy and Nárcisz were the translators and general all around helpers. On the final day (after returning from Ireland), myself, Zsuzsi and Katica helped. We also had pizza on the final day which was a blessing not only to the children but to the carer who therefore didn’t need to cook that day.

A great blessing and encouragement was to see how interested and involved the carers were with the camp. In fact one lady came in on her day off for the final day of camp and brought her 24 year old daughter with her! All the kids were given Bibles as a gift on the final day and all the carers were given thank you cards with Bible verses. Please pray that their hearts would be opened to God and that we would see this orphanage become a place where Christ is loved and worshiped! Thank you to all those who prayed and partnered with us.


God’s children

A few weeks ago we had the privilege to go into a home for disabled children. Zsuzsi has been to the home before, it was her teacher that brought a small group of young people, this time Katica and I joined too.

It was a rainy Saturday morning but as our car pulled into the parking lot we saw curious faces looking out the window and the kids were waving at us. The excitement continued as we went in, they could not wait to play with us, show us their toys or hug us. Words can not describe the feeling when one or two or three children try to get your attention and want you to spend time with them. Some of them can’t walk, some can’t talk but that did not seem to be a problem when they were playing with us. Please pray for the young people in this home, some go home to their parents at the weekends and holidays, some never do.

We are planning to revisit this home soon. If you feel led please donate to this cause. We know that they are always in need of fruit,toiletries, cleaning materials.

‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’ (Matthew 25:40)

Christmas time

Hi friends,

Zsolti and I (Zsuzsi) are writing the blog today.

Today we went to the children’s home with mum and Katica. The children’s home is in Győr and we visit it often. We have started this ministry about 4 years ago with our youth group. There are 10 kids in the home, beetween the age of 7 and 17. We told them the Christmas story which they really enjoyed. We thought a lot about how to tell them this story because it is a story they all know and we wanted it to be meaningful. We talked about God’s love and the purpose of Jesus being born. We felt it went really well. Of course the kids were really happy for the gifts we brought to them. Think about it if you would like to support this ministry in the future. Pray about it and let us know. We are telling this story again tomorrow at a Christmas programme for kids. Please pray for us that it will go well. Thank you! 🙂

“And these are the days of great trials
Of famine and darkness and sword
Still we are the voice in the desert crying
Prepare ye the way of the Lord!”
