Hungary 2023 - Day 3
Hello! Welcome back to “Americans in Hungary! How many looks can we get for being too loud on the metro!” Today was a busy day! We went back to school (sorry, Ricky and John…you thought you were getting a week away from school)! Our groups met with our assigned missionaries this morning and spent the first half of our day in different schools doing lessons and engaging with our students. Matthew even recognized three students from last year! We asked Tony to share a few words about his day since this is his first time coming to Hungary on this trip. He said, “I felt that seeing Hungary high school was a fascinating experience. It was very interesting to watch how the students interacted with their teachers and to see the incredible building. Almost all of the students spoke excellent English and were very willing to engage on a variety of concepts (though a few might have been a bit shy at first, and even fewer never opened up).” Even though we say it a lot, this really is such an incredible tool that the missionaries are able to use with us. They said that many of their students who have been coming in the past year, and who they have been able to disciple, they met when we came last year to talk in the schools.
After classes were over, we met with Mara, and she gave us a brief training on random evangelizing. Mara has been going to the universities and sharing the gospel for over 20 years now! It was encouraging to hear some of the stories of people who have come to Christ/have been told of the gospel for the first time from this ministry. Although we are all nervous going up to random people, we know it is an important call from God that we need to listen to. A girl that our group talked to last year actually started coming to meet with Mara when we went random evangelizing!
Please pray for hearts to be open tomorrow and Thursday when we go into universities to share the gospel, and continue to pray for the hearts of the high school students we will talk to the rest of the week.
Our Hungarian phrase of the day is “hogy vagy” which means “how are you?”.
