This is not the end. English camps are not the end of God’s work in Hungary. As I write this post, there are people planning the next moves, listening for God’s call. They are laypeople, missionaries, and teachers. Their goal is to connect with the kids and be there for them after the camp has ended. One specific person that needs prayer is a young man named Dezső. For those of you who don’t know your Hungarian, it’s pronounced Dezu (kind of). Dezső has committed to be a missionary in his native land for the next two years. He loves the Lord, soccer, and he especially has a passion for these kids that come to English camp. He was at all three of the English camps that The Orchard helped with this summer and he did a fantastic job. Ask any of the team members, he just connected so well to each and every one of the kids. We are excited to see how God uses him in the next two years, but he needs our prayer. Pray that the church would come alongside him and support his ventures. Pray that God would bring the support that he needs. Pray that God would keep him continue to be passionate about the kids and remind him that the Gospel is the ultimate mission.

Nathan, thank you so much for sharing about brother Dezső! This puts a picture in our hearts and a fire in our souls to pray that God would lay His hands on Dezső and make him a church planting man of God for the next two years and indeed until Jesus returns!
And thank you for all of your work in the lives of dear people there in that Balkan state.
