Szia blog readers! I’m Rick Weerts, the greatest senior guy returning to Hungary (by default). Today was an exciting first day. Many of us are recovering from jet lag, so we took our time getting up and eating breakfast. After getting quick briefings from our leaders, we took the metro over to the Hungarian Parliament, or the Országház. It’s really an impressive building, and I hope you all get a chance to see it someday. Today was also the Red Bull Air Race, so we got to see stunt pilots test flying a course right above the river.
After lunch at Arriba, the Budapestian version of Chipotle, we headed to KEGY, a Hungarian church that’s in the same building as our camp. We had the blessing of hearing a Hungarian sermon (in English!). Afterwards, we hurried down to the first floor to meet with our Hungarian partners and go over our lesson plans. Then we set up our classrooms and got together with our slightly altered teaching groups. After we finished organizing, we met in the chapel/auditorium/former movie theater for a final meeting before going back to our airbnb. We had a satisfying first day, and we’re
completely mostly ready for tomorrow! We would appreciate prayers that we connect well with our students, and that they’re open to the Word of God. Thank you all, and good night!
