Update from Betsy Melchers


It was sad to see the team off this morning, but I was so thankful that I was able to stay one day more in Hungary. Mark and Jodi Revell brought me to the ministry center where we spent the rest of the day.

It was a much different scene today versus last week; no middle school kids waiting outside the door for us, no backbreaking games of capture the flag. Though it was not bustling with youth, it was a scene of steadfast commitment. Jodi and Mark shared the vision for the Montazs Art Cafe, a way to reach out to the community through coffee, art, music, relationships, etc. It was such a blessing to hear about how God continues to work through this ministry center. After talking for a couple of hours, we did not even scratch the surface of all the possibilities for God to use this ministry center for His glory.


The evening was exciting. I observed a bit of the English club and saw the Danube small group. The grand finale… a concert! Tiffany Thompson serenaded the crowd in very same space where the team had lead English camp just several days before.

God is moving in a very tangible way in Budapest. Whether it is a student conjugation verbs correctly or moving tables and chairs to create an atmosphere catered for community, I just have to say blessed be the name of the Lord!

Psalm 24:1 was pressed on my heart this week. May it also be a blessing to you!

Psalm 24:1

1 The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it,
    the world, and all who live in it.
