May happenings

Here's a quick flashback to May so you all can see a little of what was going on.

Our new friend Nick was here meeting and making friends among the skateboarding crowd both around this area and in Budapest.  It was great to see the connections that could be made through common interests...we believe he'll be back again later!

His time with us overlapped with a team from our home church, Cross Timber BC, who came to serve by providing a baseball camp for the young people of Püspökladány.

The Cross Timber team did a great job at the baseball camp in Püspökladány.  The kids were quick
learners, and we all had a great time.  We were thankful for Adri's help as a translator.
Gary quizzing the kids on what they had learned...there was also lots of fun unrelated to baseball.

In May we also had the closing occasion of our Hajdúszoboszló English course, offered as an outreach through the Baptist church there.  Even though we were sorry that not everyone was able to come to the party, we had a wonderful time talking, playing games, and having snacks.  While playing the Ungame we got into some very deep discussions about life, death, God, and faith.  Several of us were able to tell the story of how the Lord has changed our lives and given us hope and a future.  Please pray for the students of the English course, who have become our dear friends.
