Colleague Todd, Pastor Feri and Steve in Hungary
As we focus our ministry efforts in The Balkans and South Central Europe, God is orchestrating more opportunities and new potential partnerships in that region of the world.
During our HMA year in America last year, we met Ron and Jeanne who have a ministry in Hungary as well as other countries called Community Health Evangelism (CHE) that focuses on working with Roma people. This ministry is wholistic in it’s approach seeking to help people escape a cycle of poverty, church planting, issues with preventable disease, women’s ministry, Bible studies, children’s ministry, church planting and of course seeing people come to saving faith in our Lord Jesus Christ!
Steve and his colleague Todd were invited to travel to Budapest in early October to meet with partners there who are interested in working together to reach Roma people. Over the course of 3-days we came together, prayed, sought God’s will and leading in what might be possible together and discussed what partnering together might look like.
We believe that God is directing us to come alongside CHE and help them with their ministry efforts. I would lead a Proclaim team that would travel to Hungary and Serbia to focus our evangelistic efforts in two Roma villages spending one week in each of them. We would have evangelistic outreach events using music as a platform to deliver the truth and beauty of The Gospel, have a music camp for students, equip Roma believers for their own future ministry efforts and more.
So pray with us that God would continue to direct our steps, details would come together and that our plans would align perfectly with His plans.
Thank you for all of your on-going prayers, encouragement and support!
With much love and gratitude in Christ Jesus,
steve, dawn, bianca and sofia
Pray for our family as Dawn and Steve will be attending Proclaim’s annual conference in just over a week. Bianca and Sofia will stay at home and manage themselves, with some supervision.
Please pray for a colleague who is facing a huge battle for his health. He remains amazingly peaceful in God’s grace. What an inspiration he is to all of us.
