Part of Slovakia, Austria, Croatia, and much of Romania, used to belong to Hungary. The current landlocked country used to have a coast in what is now part of Croatia. Can you imagine losing that much of your homeland to keep peace?
Some people, including Hungarians, think that this is the cause for a lot of apathy in their country. However, after living there for two years, and visiting again, I see the Hungarian people as precious and not particularly pessimistic as a whole. Perhaps that is why I was called to teach and minister there for a couple of years.
On the other hand, since many Hungarians are Christian in name only, one can see why there may be an undercurrent of hopelessness. Still, God is in control.
On my recent trip back to Budapest, I learned that there was a revival in Hungary after the Berlin Wall fell in 1989. In fact, one of my American missionary friends is married to a Hungarian gentleman who got gloriously saved at that time.
I am praying for another revival to ignite in present day Hungary, as well as in the former land of yesteryear. Please join me in praying that Christian mission teams will go on short term mission’s trips to Budapest, and all over Hungary. I also believe we should pray for more career Christians to go to Hungary. Every time I go visit, I see Mormon elders and Jehovah Witnesses, and for the first time I saw a scientology church. We should have more Bible believing Christians there who can witness to everyone, including cult members!
I am glad that God is in control, so let’s believe in good things for Hungary, and lost people all over the world. As evangelist and teacher Marilyn Hickey says, “There’s no shortage of sinners.”
Really people need to be saved. I love the song People Need The Lord. Listen to this YouTube video of Steve Green singing this song at a Billy Graham crusade by Clicking Here on this hyperlink.
Thank you for praying for Hungary and supporting missions in any way that you can.
God bless you,
