English Camps are finished. We had 90 students enrolled, with very few absentees during the week. Pictured is Larry Heard and his class of 13-15 yr olds. Great week with many opportunities to share the plan of salvation. Great mission trip.
Our youngest class has 44 students ages 6-10. Much too large for any successful teaching. We divided the class and Ann is now teaching the 9-10 year olds and Larry is teaching the 13-14 yr olds. We both have great interpreters who not only interpret for us but who are functioning as teaching associates. ...
Here's the three teams for the three schools administered by Szekesfeverhar Baptist Church at the morning worship service after Larry preached. The 18 team members are from FBC Amarillo, Paramount Amarillo, Perryton, Lubbock, McKinney, Hooker, OK as well as 2 teams from Germany/Austria teaching German at two of the schools.
Good morning! Today's Big Picture Question is, "Who can do God's work?" God gives every believer gifts and skills for doing His work. How can you use your talents and abilities to serve God? Talk as a family about each person's gifts and strengths, and brainstorm ways he/she can use those to share Christ with others. In our latest email ("Have You Talked To Your Kids About...Missions"), we talk about specific ways your and your family can learn to use what God has given you to serve Him. Look through this email together as a family, and find one new way you can share the good news of Christ this summer!Check out the email here:http://www.fbc-amarillo.org/ministries-children-have-you-talked-to-your-kids-about-
Here are 9 (including one from OK) getting ready to head for our second week. It's very sweet for Larry and I to be wrapped in arms of love from our Hungarian brothers and sisters upon returning to Szekesvehervar for the third time. What a blesssing. Pray for us as we begin our second week of camps. Pray for our evangelistic moments! Ruthie is joining us here this week while Sue holds down the fort in Velence and Charlotte is returning home today. That's the news from Hngary. Stay tuned for more. Blessings,Larry and Ann
Monday afternoon we were asked to a nursing home. Cynthia shared her testimony, Sandy sang, Terry shared about Texas, and Larry gave some testimony and shared the plan of salvation with those present. It was a very good time. Monday was hectic with so many students as we organized classes and began teaching a Bible lesson on Joseph as we used the Joseph story to teach various English words from the story.
Good morning! Today's Big Picture Question is, "By whose power did Peter heal the man who was lame?" Peter healed the man by the power of Jesus. When was a time God helped you do something you didn't think was possible? As a family, talk about other characters in the Bible who had big problems and hardships. How did God help them? We serve a God who is bigger than anything we're facing today. Pray together, asking God to help you trust Him to protect and care for you this week, no matter what you're facing.
From Hungary Team: "All participants now at assigned churches/schools. We are planning the weeks schedule for Hatvan with the host church pastor and chaplain today and will meet with the school teachers and administrators tomorrow afternoon. Will try to text some photos, first try failed."...
