Day three of going into the schools, and we are really getting our rhythm down in our teams! This trip has not only allowed us to help other people find or grow in their faith, but it also allows us to grow our skills in patience and communication within our teams - figuring out the best way to get our classes done the best way we can. Throughout the week, we also have been able to have engaging conversations with the missionaries each day. Building these friendships with them is one of our favorite “added bonuses” that this opportunity allows us. Seeing how the friendships that were made last year grow even more this year is such an amazing picture of the unity God wants for his people. Thousands of miles away, serving the same God, bringing us together.
We have been having such God-moments this week, and it has been awesome sitting down with each other at the end of the day and sharing them. Sadly, I can’t share all of them with you now because this blog would turn into a novel, so we will start with one for today. When Jonathan was out in the college town doing his “randoms” as they are called here (random evangelizing), he approached three students who were down to talk to him. Their names were Akos, Adam, and Bogi. It turned out that one of them was an agnostic, one atheist, and one a “non-practicing Christian.” Through the tools that we learned in our training session this week, Jonathan was able to spend about an hour and a half challenging the students on what they actually believe in and left them with some questions to ponder. Jonathan was able to pray with the three of them, and they even gave him some prayer requests when he asked. The one girl, who claimed to be a Christian, said she was struggling with depression and wasn’t sure if heaven or hell were real and wanted to find the answers to it all. Without Jonathan taking a walk of faith and approaching these three students, some seeds wouldn’t have been planted in their hearts, and they may not have had anyone care enough to make them think and question what is actually true. Jesus says in Matthew 9 that the harvest is ready, but the laborers are few. We can see the need here, and we need to be answering that call either through prayer, support, or even going. This trip has reminded us that there isn’t just a need in Hungary but in our own city as well, and we hope to use the tools and training this trip has given us to grow as Christians and to share the good news more boldly with the people in our hometowns.
Please pray as we continue this week and have the event with the students tomorrow night. Please pray that they will show up and that they will be open to the gospel.
Our Hungarian word of the day is “gyönyör?” which means beautiful!
