I arrived safely back home late Monday night from Budapest, Hungary. I don’t think our journey home could have gone any smoother. Unlike the trip over, I was the only adult along with the 9 teenagers that made up our ministry team in Hungary. My co-leader stayed a couple of extra days to visit several of her friends which were also fruit from her previous ministry times in Hungary.

I am excited about what we saw happen over the past week. I could not have asked for a better team of kids to lead. I am really proud of the hard work they put in and the servant attitude that they had throughout the week. We planted seeds that we hope others will harvest this spring or this summer through the SpeakOut English Camp.

One of our desires was to be an encouragement to the five short-term interns working with the Budapest team. Almost every one of them made a comment about how we had encouraged them through our hard work, our hearts for the lost Hungarian students and by our willingness to do whatever it took throughout the week. What an answer to prayer.
