OM team helps in Hungary, encouraged by faith of local believers

By April 6, 2009

Hungary (MNN) — The small town of Kiskunmajsa, Hungary has only 10,000 inhabitants. It also has the highest suicide rate in the region and several problems with drugs.

Operation Mobilization chose this town as their first stop with their Bus4Life outreach in Hungary. The team began with food distribution to the needy and also received the chance to encourage local believers. As it turned out, these local Christians became more of an encouragement to them.

One family that they met has several medical needs and trusts in the Lord for their day-to-day care. The father of the family, Lasci, explained to the team the distress he was in when his little daughter asked for watermelon, knowing he could hardly provide bread for her. The next morning, while Lasci was taking out the trash, he hit his foot and looked down to discover a watermelon lying there. He had no idea where it had come from.

Lasci's wife said that on a similar occasion, she was cooking pancakes but had only enough flour for four. Miraculously, the batter lasted for 40 pancake, and the family was able to share with others in need.

These stories were enough to encourage the team immensely. OM is sending another Bus4Life team in August from Switzerland to continue work in the country.

Pray that the Lord would work in the hearts of all those the OM team encountered. Pray also for more opportunities to be used in Hungary, and for those who are already faithfully serving Christ in the area.
