Puppet Ministry Day 13 & 14

Early Tuesday morning we set out to the town of Gyöngyösoroszi which is a good half hour away from our hometown. After my God took care of my vehicle’s engine problem a few days ago, the engine light once again appeared. In my heart, I just turned to God, confident that this was His car and confident that He heard my request to deal with this in His power. I’m glad to report that soon after, the engine began working at full power and God has been faithful to protect us as we travel all over Northeaster Hungary in this ministry.

The team is healthy and continues to give it their all in each show even though they are feeling the fatigue from these three weeks of ministry. We appreciate all of you that have been a large part of how smoothly this season’s puppet ministry went as you stood with us in prayer!

The following photos will give you an overview of the places we’ve been on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Rozsaszentmarton


As many of you know, through many years we attempted to get into Rozsaszentmarton (an area we are churchplanting) with our puppet show with now success. Just last year, God opened the door, and we held a Christmas Puppet Show that resulted in our team being invited back! This is the town where one of our teammates and church elder Dezso lives with his family. It is the middle school where our kids also attend. Teammate Erika commented that she was almost in tears as she peered out and saw teachers and students joining us in singing this years songs. Although the enemy sought to gate-out the coming kingdom of God, Jesus said, “I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it” (Matt 16:18)

Tomorrow we have some of our final shows while most schools are beginning spring break. After tomorrow, we’ll have one more show next week to conclude our Easter Puppet Ministry of 2014. Thanks for you’re continued prayers for this ministry of the Gospel!

Puppet Ministry Day 11 & 12

Saturday in Gyöngyös


Saturday afternoon, our team traveled to Gyöngyös for a show in their community center. Since this show wasn’t on a school day, we had many parents who attended and heard the Good News of our Savior’s Resurrection.

Above: In each middle school we go into the Gospel a bit more in depth. It has been very effective having one person represent fallen man and another represent Jesus coming to save. Here, Allen (representing Jesus) is taking sin upon himself to set fallen man free. Erika shares that Jesus has done everything to break the bondage of sin and separation from God but it remains our choice to believe and by faith follow after Him.

Above: As you can see, the kids were mesmerized by the show and afterward they were able to answer the basic questions Miki had for the preschoolers about Jesus’ death and resurrection.

We’re in our home stretch of this year’s Easter puppet outreach and continue to ask you to pray for us. Pray for God “to enable [us] to live a life worthy of his call. May he give [us] the power to accomplish all the good things [our] faith prompts [us] to do. (2 Thess 1:11) Thank you all for continuing to minister with us through prayer!
