Dear Praying, Helping Friends: Some things never change.  And the biggest thing I can think of that can never change is the love of God for sinners He calls to Himself in the gospel.  Look at this awesome statement in … Continue reading

Dear Praying, Helping Friends:

We are delighted to begin this prayer letter by telling you we had a tremendous response to our need in the five projects we shared with you two months ago. As a result 1) We met the deadline to buy this land in Erdo, Romania – a piece we spent six years looking for. 2) We made the last payment on our new building in Budapest and had enough for renovations to be able to have our first service there the 5th of June. 3) We finished the first phase of restoration work on our main building in Miskolc, Hungary. 4) We made good progress on the construction of the new main building at our conference center in Kukja, Ukraine. 5) We were able to buy $20,000 in materials for construction on the new land in Erdo, Romania just before prices jumped 25 %. And we were able to do all this even though the dollar fell 10% in value in Hungary and Romania during this time, costing us $8,000 more than we expected. So you can see how greatly the Lord worked. To Him be the glory. “Faithful is He who calls you, who also will do it.” (I Th. 5:24) The “it” of this verse is God’s work of holiness in the believer, but it does not seem to be a Harold Camping stretch to say that whatever God calls into being, whether “it” is the believer’s calling to be holy or the work God gives him to do, this “it” will happen. For He is faithful. He cannot deny Himself. Continue reading

Dear Praying, Helping Friends:

In my last newsletter, I wrote to you at some length about our Budapest congregation, how it is growing, and how we were beginning to ask the Lord what to do with our crowded facilities. I said that “our current facilities cannot handle more than 45 people at one time.” The very next week we had 46 people! Somehow we managed to find space for one more person. Of course, it is wonderful to see more and more people hungering for the Word of God. But with summer approaching, we remembered what it was like last summer with 25-30 people in the main room and only one toilet. The place has no air conditioning (the complex where we are located won’t allow it) and we cannot open the windows (except at night) because the fumes from the traffic on the street below are worse than the air inside. Needless to say, this intensified our praying to the point we were praying with fasting. We felt helpless to solve this matter because the real estate market in Budapest is virtually dead. We found this out when we tested the market last year and could not find a single buyer – and it is worse this year! Continue reading
