A busy ten days!

The last ten days have been so busy! I want to catch you up on some of what we have been doing.

Last week, Zsuzsi and I were in Kiev and Rivne, Ukraine. I spoke on the subject of the persecuted Church in Kiev at the Ukrainian education center and then in Rivne I was blessed to visit a Christian rehab center for men recovering from alcohol and drug addiction. This centre is lead by a former drug addict who gave his life to Christ 12 years ago. Currently, seven men are in the center, there stories are very sad but they are learning to love and trust Christ! I was able to share my testimony with them and enjoyed meeting them. If you feel led to support this ministry, these men and the center need financial aid to help pay for food, bills, rent and medical care. Feel free to contact me if you want to help.

Then upon returning to Hungary we prepared for Easter. We organised for a European champion bodybuilder to visit with the kids at the orphanage to speak about the importance of sport and that no matter what the circumstances, that the kids could be successful in life. Then today we celebrated Easter with our monthly English language service. A total of 24 people joined together to worship the Risen Lord. It was particularly nice to welcome 5 new people today! Thank you for your continued prayers and support of our ministry.

Christ is Risen!!!!

Today I had the privilege of speaking in Mallow Street Gospel Hall in Limerick, Ireland. It was a blessing to spend time worshipping the Lord in my ‘home’ church surrounded by family and friends. I preached on the need of the church to wake and arise at this crucial time in history. Kathy also spoke on our ministry work in Hungary.

Myself and my four ladies have had a short (but very needed) holiday in Ireland. A day trip to Lehinch beach was the highlight for me even though it was very windy and cold!

We enjoyed lots of great food, a trip to the cinema to see the movie Risen and plenty of shopping!!! Have any of you ever noticed how amazingly good women are at shopping? 😉

It was good to be home in Ireland and we look forward to going home to Hungary tomorrow. Please continue to pray for travel mercies!

Happy Easter friends, He is Risen!!!

Easter Sunday, March 27th, we will have the privilege of speaking in Mallow Street Gospel Hall in Limerick. If you are there we would love to see you and chat for a while.

The whole family will be there and we are excited to worship together with our friends.

As we will be in Ireland for only a few days we will not be available to speak elsewhere. Sorry! However if your church, Bible study group etc would like us to visit then just drop me a note and we will work something out for the next time. We are keen to have as many people as possible praying for the ministry work in Hungary and in the Middle-East.

Easter celebrations

This Sunday we had a wonderful time of Bible study, prayer, worship and fellowship as we celebrated the risen Lord! We were blessed by Yoli and Zsolti leading us in worship, Katica and Kathy taught the children and Gerry lead the teaching time. We remembered the sacrifice of Christ as we partook in communion together. Afterwards we enjoyed a wonderful meal and then had a serious discussion on the direction of our group and how we can reach more people for Christ. I am so blessed by all these great men and women of Christ and I’m very impressed at how the young people are growing in their faith.

The underground church in the Middle East met on Friday. Last year I was blessed to celebrate Easter with them. Please continue to pray for believers who are not free to worship Christ without fear of persecution.

Today then we had the Hungarian tradition of ‘locsolás’. On Easter Monday, males sprinkle their female relatives and close friends with water. It is one of the oldest traditions and it symbolizes rebirth, purity and fertility. The picture below is from last year and is of Zsuzsi being doused with water by Zsolti.
