Ministry in Hungary
For over 15 years, we have been involved in ministry to college and high school students in Hungary. This past year, our family had 2 opportunities to go to Hungary.
Spring 2007 - Jeff returned to Hungary for his seventh visit. Jeff's team of 5 spoke in classrooms, invited students to an outreach and did random evangelism during the week.
Spring 2006 - Jeff led a team of 9 teenagers to Budapest, Hungary in March. They spent the week speaking in classrooms, inviting students to an outreach and doing random evangelism in McDonalds and Burger Kings.
Summer 2005 - Our whole family spent the summer in Keszthely, Hungary. We were part of SpeakOut 2005, a series of three, week-long, conversational English camps. Each week, a group of Hungarian students who want to improve their English skills came to the camps.
Other visits to Hungary:
- Spring 2000 - Jeff spent two weeks in Budapest on a vision trip. He participated in a variety of ministry activities including speaking in Hungarian high school classrooms, passing out fliers to invite people to a showing of the Jesus film and interacting with teachers at a symposium sponsered by Campus Crusade.
- 1997-98 School year - Jeff and Anne lived in Debrecen, Hungary. We were part of a team of 10 Americans leading a three year old Campus ministry planted by an earlier team of American short-term missionaries.
- Summer 1996 - Anne and Jeff participated in SpeakOut 1996. We joined 9 other students from Kansas State University on the summer mission.
- Summer 1990 - Jeff visited Hungary for the first time. It was an exciting summer of sharing the gospel with students emerging from the fall of the Communist system in Eastern Europe.
