Visit from an old friend

We were so thankful for the time with our friend!
First of all, I apologize for not posting in so long - once again life and work got really busy (plus we have been catching every bug that's going around) and I have neglected to keep you all updated.  There's so much to tell you, but I'll just have to catch you up bit by bit.

One wonderful thing that happened about a week ago was a visit from an old friend!  A young man that came faithfully for many years to the outreach coffeehouse we used to have, who has since graduated and gone on to work in another city, was back in town and came over for tea and a chat.  It was great to catch up with him.  He shared how much the coffeehouse meant to him and about some other things that have been happening in his life.  The Lord opened up the opportunity to talk with him about spiritual things, so pray for this dear friend, that God will continue to work in his life.  Also pray for the many, many others who came to coffeehouse over the years and heard a gospel message, that wherever they are now God will keep working in their hearts.

We are so thankful for our Hungarian friends, as well as those from all around the world whom God has brought into our lives, and how much they mean to us!  What a blessing to be able to stay in touch, and especially when we can get together in person!

Gardening outreach program

Photo from intro meeting for program - more are now coming

Praise the Lord, the gardening outreach program’s first weekly training class went very well!   

All those who had signed up came and showed a lot of interest, and the Hungarian teacher did a great job of presenting the material and answering questions. We are very encouraged that the national believers are excited about improving their skills in order to use them in outreach to lost friends and neighbors. Continue to pray as we work to develop this program, that God will be glorified in all that is said and done.

[Note:  After a long pause in posting I came back and saw that this entry was never finished and sorry!  Please pray that we will be able to stay healthy and keep on top of things better.]
