Thank you for praying for our daughter Esther, who recently had corrective surgery on torn ligaments in her ankle. Everything went well, and the doctor is pleased with her progress. Please pray for her recovery to go well, as she still has several more weeks on crutches. We pray she will be back on her feet in time to head back to college in August!
Besides our church in Esztergom, I enjoyed preaching in three area churches during the month of May. On May 13th I preached for Marton Csiha in Oroszlany. You may remember that Marton and his wife Rachel served with us in Esztergom for several years before taking the church in Oroszlany. They have moved the church to a new location which is larger and more „family friendly.” The church is beginning to grow, and they have several new people attending on a regular basis. On May 27th I preached in Tata Sunday morning. It was good to see that Tata is still doing well under Gergo’s leadership. That same afternoon I preached at an open-air evangelistic service in the city of Gyor.
On June 17th I took a group of 9 people from our church to minister at a conference in Noszvaj, Hungary. We were able to minister to about 200 people from a number of area churches. The theme was the Vertical Church with an emphasis on worship. I brought two messages on worship, and our worship team led the worship in both services. God met with us in a special way, and we pray that God will use these messages to inspire a passion for the glory of God in these churches.
1. Trip to the Ukraine.June 29-July 1st I will be taking the Vertical Church vision to the Ukraine. I will be speaking all day on Saturday to a group of leaders and Christian workers and then be preaching in church on Sunday. You may not know that there are thousands of ethnic Hungarians living in the Ukraine, and this is a ministry working with Hungarian people in the Hungarian language.
2. English Camp in Esztergom.July 9-13 we will be holding our annual English Camp in Esztergom. Please pray for God to touch the lives of all the children, teens and adults that we will be working with that week. We long to see fruit that remains come out of these weeks!
3. Our daughter Nancy will be visiting us from July 21-August 9th. We can hardly wait to see her! Please pray for her travels to go well.
Marc, Charin, Nancy, Esther and Hannah Patton
