Budapest, My Hidden Treasure Chest
There are no language barriers when it comes to God's love.
The most valuable lesson I learned during this trip was how much is possible when God is involved.
– Language Barriers
– Communication: through friendship, mentorship, family and the spirit
– Boldness in Jesus' Name
It was no coincidence that I found myself joining the Whitesburg Baptist Church Hungary Go Team. I know it was all part of THE PLAN! In the beginning, I wasn't even sure I would be able to come up with the money. But God provided! (With the help of friends, family, complete strangers, pound cakes and Customink t-shirts) God worked through so many people in my life who donated and helped me get to Hungary-my first mission trip out of the country.
We know of 4 kids who came to know Christ during this camp! I could definitely see everyone's lives being touched in small ways all through the week. Many of the people we met in Diosd lived quite humbly, so it was amazing to see the outreach from many families at Paulus Church. Every night we were brought traditional
(I included some links to recipes so that you can see what I mean.)
The Hungarians we met were very hospitable people. Overall, they were also very non-materialistic, which was refreshing to see. The Hungarian kids were well-mannered and pretty mature for their ages. All of these characteristics stuck out to me about the Hungarians because for the most part Americans are the opposite. I was impressed by how well-behaved the campers were compared to most American kids I know.
Some things I missed during my time in Hungary and beyond:
– Air conditioning!!
– A good cup of joe
