Kedves barataink, (Our dear friends)
So much has happened since our last letter! We have just finished perhaps the busiest month of May in all of our time in ministry, and it has been amazing to see all that God has done! We hosted a missions trip from the WOL Bible Insitute in New York, celebrated 20 years of Word of Life Hungary, hosted the annual Word of Life Hungary family day, watched two of our interns get married, and saw our students graduate and move on to summer ministry!
May began with a bang as we hosted 29 people from Word Of Life New York for an eight day missions trip. Each day was spent in different locations as we were able to serve in two churches, three public schools, two orphanages, and on our own campus! What an exciting time it was to watch these young people serve the Lord! During their time here, we were able to share the gospel with over 300 people, and we saw over 20 people make decisions for Christ!
As May continued, Word of Life celebrated twenty years of faithful ministry in Hungary. What an exciting time to see and hear some of the great things that God has done over the past two decades! It is truly humbling to think that we are privileged to play a small part in this historic and God-honoring ministry. One of our interns put together a great video you should watch to truly understand how God has worked and continues to work in this ministry. Please check it out at this website: http://eletszava.org/en/anniversary-video-page.html
May ended with the graduation of our first and second year students. This was an especially exciting time for Andy as he signed each diploma and was able to personally give out the academic awards to some of the students. Our ministry now turns to focusing on our financial support, and learning Hungarian. These are crucial areas of our ministry, and we need your prayers and support as we go through this time. Tabitha will be taking language classes all summer, so please pray for safety as she daily commutes into Budapest to learn Hungarian. Please pray that she would learn a lot through this time. We also need to see a large support increase to be able to continue our minsitry. Our anonymous gift runs out in December, so to continue to stay here, we need to see an increase of at least $900 per month to our support. Please pray for God to do a great work to provide supporters through amazing ways. Perhaps you can help by either joining our support team or by increasing your current support! We are so thankful to have each of you partnering with us, and we look forward to even more incredible ministry opportunities in the days ahead!
In Christ’s service,
Andy, Tabitha, Novalie, and Eden
