From the majestic cathedrals (right – St. Stephens in Budapest) to the plain, simple churches (below – like here in Tapolca,) the buildings are impressive but “empty”; you sense so are the people as you watch and listen to them on the streets and in the stores. We are reminded in vivid ways that interceding for the moving of God’s Spirit in lives of individuals is critical and necessary. Recently we sang Chris Tomlin’s song “God of This City.” It had new meaning for us. “You’re the God of this city. You’re the King of these people. You’re the Lord of this nation… And greater things are still to be done in this city.”
Again, we cannot thank you enough for your prayer support as we interact with individuals – both young and old – via the English sessions. We are now in the last six weeks of being here in Tapolca.
This coming Sunday, April 13th (Palm Sunday), I (Bob) have been invited to speak at Kelenfold Evangelical Free Church (Kegy) in Budapest. The church is in a series in the Book of Acts and this Sunday we’ll be on chapter 12. Grateful for your prayers for wisdom, the process of being translated while preaching, and the application of the Word to those attending the service.
Bob and Nancy, thank you so much for this report and for your good and faithful service!
We are definitely praying for you, and those you are in contact with! We will definitely pray for Sunday. Can’t believe you’re half way through. We love you!
