All 5 of us are arrived in Keszthely, Hungary on the 28th of June. We will be here until the 29th of July. We are participating in the Speak Out! project that is being run by the Hungarian ministry. It is a huge project that involves many staff from a number of countries. Keszthely (say it like kest-hey) is a sort of central command for a number of activities. We have people who have come from the US (and Americans who already live in Hungary) to work the English camp. The camp takes place over 3 weeks with about 120 new Hungarians coming each week to learn English from native English speakers. Each of them will hear the gospel multiple times.
We also have a large number of Hungarians here working as staff. They will be going out to the beaches and town to share the gospel. They will also visit other towns around Balaton, including another project that will be run in Siofok. Other Hungarians will be going to Slovakia, Romania and Albania to do outreaches there. It’s an exciting time to be a part of this huge evangelistic opportunity.
Since we’ve arrived we’ve been focused on getting ready. Ingrid and I each have groups of young people that we are discipling. We are helping them learn how to share their testimony and share the gospel. Once campers start to arrive, we will help them be English tutors and witnesses to the Hungarian campers. We covet your prayers as we take part in transforming Hungary and by extension, the world. Here are a couple short, rough video clips (I just grabbed them with my phone) of our worship time together.
