We have a good relationship with the headmaster, József, of this school. Unfortunately, he shared news that he was battling cancer and has been going through chemo. József and I went into the teachers’ lounge after the show and he allowed me to share a bit about Jesus and also allowed me to pray for healing in His name.
Above: The kids love ‘uncle’ Miki. Since we visit these schools twice a year, they remember our names and are already shouting, “There’s ‘uncle’ Miki” when we enter and begin setting up the stage.

We finished this year’s Easter Puppet Outreach in the town of Jászfényszaru and combined it with a children’s outreach in the local community center. God has opened up doors in this community with an English Club, Bible classes in the elementary school and worship service every other week. We were thankful to see students from our English class come with their children and parents that were invited by those who are attending worship service.
Above: I was able to meet Edit who lives in Jászfényszaru. Edit shared with me her longtime struggle with epilepsy and allowed me to pray for her in Jesus’ name. She is interested in attending worship service and we hope to see her again.

As you can see the kids had a great time and God used this event to help us develop new relationships in the community. Praise God for His provision of using the community center free of charge and for many from our church community using their giftings to serve. Thank you for your faithful prayers throughout this puppet season! We distributed 1,800 evangelistic gift packets to children and also gave teachers evangelistic material in each school. The good news has been proclaimed in a way that the children can begin grasping the wonders of God’s love and grace. Praise God for continuing to keep this door open in Hungary and for drawing a new generation of Hungarian children to Himself.

Above: When we first arrived in Ecseg, the person in the local community center had no idea we were coming. After a few phone calls, we were able to work everything out with the school principal even though the teacher who initially spoke to our team forgot to pass on the message to the school. Praise God we were still able to hold the show.
