Summer is here, and we are enjoying the change of pace. Nancy and Ben are home and we are grateful that we can have our whole family together for a few weeks. Summer is also a busy time for our ministry. Here is an update.
Summer Day Camp in Tata:
June 22-26 we held our day camp in Tata. This is one of our biggest outreach events of the year. We had about 30 children participate. The majority of the children are from families in the community who are not believers. It is a wonderful opportunity to share the Gospel and build relationships. It is always great to see our church members in Tata band together to make this week a success. Many take time off of work so they can participate. Please pray that we will see fruit that remains.
Family Camp in Slovakia:
June 30-July 4 our church in Esztergom held its annual Family Camp in Pribylina, Slovakia. The conference center is located in the High Tatra Mountains of northern Slovakia. It is a beautiful location that reminds us of the majesty of our great God. It was a special joy to have Istvan Lados as our special speaker of the week. Istvan is a young pastor who married a girl who grew up in our church. It was a joy to spend the week with them and see how the Lord is using them. Istvan brought some powerful messages, and the Lord spoke to hearts. Many gave testimonies at our campfire service of what the Lord did in their lives. It was a special joy to see one of our teenage girls make a profession of faith. We have been praying specifically for her salvation for the past several months.
Good news! We did finally receive our building permit in Tata. The work began this past week with the demolition of the back section of our current building. We will have pictures and an update in the near future. Please do pray for the remaining funds to come in. Our goal is still to have the new auditorium completed and ready for use by the end of October!
