Pacikert Mission Church's community outreach day

It's a beautiful, sunny day here in Debrecen, and the community outreach at the Pacikert mission is going on as I type this.  The people from the neighborhood are enjoying lots of fun activities including music, face-painting and pony rides.  Believers are there to make friends, answer questions, and share their faith.  Our teammember Darrel Hathcock and his family are on hand with other friends and volunteers to distribute Bibles from a booth near the stage area--pray for good communication and many opportunities to share. Later in the afternoon there will be a special time of live Christian music and preaching.
Pray with us that God will move in a mighty way to forge new connections with people and draw them to new life in Him.  Pray that the Bibles that are given away will be read, changing lives.

Mission pastor Csaba and his wife Marika give glory to God for the opportunities of the day

Praises and prayer requests

Praise the Lord for how He worked through the English and Bible camps over the past month or so - I hope to post pictures and more information soon.  Pray that the witness that was given and all the Gospel seeds sown will continue to work in the hearts of those that heard.  We thank the Lord for all the volunteers, partnering organizations and national believers who worked together during these events.

Tomorrow will be a day-long community outreach organized by national believers at the Pacikert mission church in Debrecen.  Our teammember Darrel Hathcock will be working at a Bible distribution booth and will be interacting with a lot of people from the community.  Pray that as the Gospel goes forth, the Lord will impact hearts and draw people to Himself.  Pray that the Bibles that are given away will be read, and that individuals and families will be transformed by the power of God in their lives.

Please continue to pray for the Tiszafüred church plant, where very serious discussions are taking place during Bible study. Also pray that the Nádudvar Bible study will soon grow into a church plant; we are currently looking for a new place to meet that will allow more people to attend.  Pray for guidance and provision for us and our national partners.  Thank you!
