Native English speakers needed!

Are you a native English speaker?  God can use you on mission in Hungary!
Carolyn with adult beginner English class from several years ago
On the first day of English camp the Hungarian pastor warned us that one of our students was known in the town as a strong atheist...and at first she did seem closed.  Even her face had a hardness about it.  But throughout the week, as the love of Christ was shown and Christian testimonies shared, a visible change took place.  By the end of the camp she was leaning forward in her chair, tears in her eyes. No, she didn't come to faith that week, but soon she began attending the church's seekers' class.  The following summer at camp registration my jaw almost dropped at the change in her -- she hurried to greet me, her countenance softer and a new twinkle in her eye.  The Gospel was working in her life in a powerful, transforming way....

All across Hungary similar stories have taken place as English as a Second Language  (ESL) is used to open doors for sharing the Gospel.  There is a huge need for this kind of outreach--Hungarians of all ages are constantly asking for English language help from native speakers.   

Who is qualified to come minister using ESL?  If you are a strong believer and speak English (which I assume you do if you are reading this!) then you could come provide conversation practice or teach at a camp, coffeehouse, school or in many other venues.  Formal ESL training is helpful but not required.  We are also looking for certified teachers who could come to teach a semester or year in the public schools.  Pray with us that God will raise up many volunteers to come help with this exciting ministry!

Out and about again

We are so thankful to be out and about again after several weeks of a terrible attack of the flu! 

Today being Wednesday, we drove to Nádudvar, one of our favorite towns in eastern Hungary, for Bible study with our good friend "T."   Pray for this new believer and his family as they deal with some really difficult things in life right now.  Pray for the town of Nádudvar, where we would love to see a church planted.  If you are interested in coming to prayerwalk the streets of this town with us or in doing some other creative outreach there, please let us know!
