All happening here!

We are busy with the start of the new school year. We are grateful to the Lord for the continuation of both the Adult Bible study group and the University Bible study group. We have seen some small growth in both these groups. Naturally we are also back in the orphanage every week and Kati is working with two kids in particular and helping them significantly with both their academic work and by being a loving ‘ear’ to hear of their days. I can’t share the issue but your prayers are needed because of a situation at the orphanage. We ask that truth will prevail and those involved would be honest.
Also growing is the English language service. We had 29 people this past Sunday and they all stayed for a long time after the service to fellowship. It is becoming a real community of believers who care for one another!
I also was recently in Germany. I took part in a course on developing church communities and reaching out to people of peace. I’m not at liberty to say too much about this but I will be attending another conference on this subject soon. Prayers appreciated for all involved as it is in a country where this may be frowned upon by the government.

Please pray with us as we are being intentional about reaching the lost for Christ and building relantionships with believers across denominations to reach as many people as possible. God has great things in store for Gyor, Hungary and all of Europe!

Speaking and travel for 2017

mi-mennyi-2017

I (Gerry) am currently sorting through my calendar for 2017 and am inviting requests for speaking engagements at your church, Bible study group, conference etc. Already I am partially booked for the months of January, April, June, July and November 2017.

I would be delighted to speak on our ministry work here in Hungary and our involvement with  the persecuted church in the Middle-East. I primarily am available to speak in Europe, but will, of course, consider other engagements and will do my utmost to  meet any requests. Please feel free to use the contact form or send me an email to ask about potential times.

Another option which I suggest is that I can Skype into your meetings and present like that.  This is a simple way of hearing about our ministry without any costs involved to you or your church.

I look forward to seeing you in 2017!

 

Ordinations in Bulgaria

I have had the pleasure of being in Sofia, Bulgaria this week at the European Free Methodist conference. With America, Belgium, Brazil, Bulgaria, Congo, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Portugal, South Africa, Spain, UK, Ukraine and Zimbabwe represented we had a truly international group!

The conference has been filled with excellent teaching on church planting, intentional discipleship and a superb panel based discussion on three distinct subjects: alcohol, homosexuality and the refugee crisis in Europe.

For me the highlight of the conference was tonight as we ordained three new elders! Please pray for Angel and Carmelo who will continue to serve in Spain and Péter in Hungary as they assume the responsibilities of ordained ministers.

Tonight we also accepted my friend Abwe Mulonda as a conference candidate. Please pray for him and his church in Monaghan, Ireland. He is pictured below on my left with Lawrence from Belgium on my right.

Light in the darkness!

On Wednesday, Katica and I flew to Lisbon, Portugal for a Christian conference. We were blessed to stay at a hotel in Sintra, right on the beach where we enjoyed excellent food, teaching and the wonderful ocean view!

With visits to the western-most point of Europe, Hell’s mouth and Lisbon we enjoyed this beautiful country.

However the highlight of the weekend was the opportunity I had to present at a workshop and to be involved in the ordination of two men from Holland.

Please pray with me that these men would bring the Gospel to the people of Holland faithfully and that they would be blessed in their ministry!
