Training and Outreach in BUDAPEST, Hungary!!!

Hello Friends!

Two weeks ago I set out for Budapest, Hungary with my Discipleship Training Staff team from Constanta, Romania, for a week of training and evangelism. We joined up with the staff team from YWAM Budapest- enjoying sharing our experiences in working with discipleship schools, learning how to better work together as a team, and praying for God to move in our schools to reach the lost and see His Kingdom come in Budapest.

During our time in Budapest we also had the amazing blessing of reaching out to the city with the Catholic church. Two years of preparation had gone into this week long "City Mission" outreach to the people of Budapest and all over the city you could find Christians sharing the Gospel through music, art, preaching, scripture reading, liturgy, clowning, face painting, and conversation.

Our team from YWAM Constanta, and Terry Williams from YWAM Budapest had an awesome week working along-side "New Jerusalem" a charismatic Catholic church in Budapest. I was a butterfly for the week, painting kids faces and some adults too! Terry was the clown standing next to me in the picture to the left and we had a great time shining the love of Jesus on the people we met.

The rest of my team had many conversations with people about the Lord and we even met some Romanians that we could share with in Romanian! It was an awesome time of seeing how God moves when his people are in unity. Some people responded to altar calls that were given and a lot of precious seed was sown into the hearts of the people. Keep praying that the believers in Budapest will feel free to continue to share about our Saviour and the new life we have in him. God is moving in that city!!!

Thank you for being a part of what the Lord is doing in Eastern Europe through your prayers and finances!!! Stay tuned for more on what the Lord is doing in Romania :)

Then the King will say to those on His right, "Come, you who are blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. For I was hungry, and you gave Me something to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger, and you invited Me in; naked, and you clothed Me; I was sick, and you visited Me; I was in prison, and you came to Me." Mt. 25:34-36

"All that is not the love of God has no meaning for me. I can truthfully say that I have no interest in anything but the love of God which is in Christ Jesus. If God wants it to, my life will be useful through my word and witness. If He wants it to, my life will bear fruit through my prayers and sacrifices. But the usefulness of my life is His concern, not mine. It would be indecent of me to worry about that."
