The Week Before Pentecost

As usual, we had prayer meeting each night with the church, this week. We do this before every major celebration. The subjects and texts for prayer were related with the work of the Holy Spirit.

I had a trip also to Oradea (the students had their exams), teaching and a meeting with the Executive (Tuesday), another trip to Targu Mures (Thursday), than I went to Berehovo, Ukraine, for a Youth meeting. On Friday night I was preaching to a house-group in Uzhgorod - to Bible-thirsty and seeking Hungarian people. A semiary student (Csaba Borzási) accompanied me, from Oradea. We slept in Mukacevo and than, Saturday morning we went to Berehovo. The pastor from Berehovo took us with his car.

The Youth meeting was in an open air stadium. About 300 young people were gathered from all over Transcarpathia, Hungarian and Ukrainean baptists, and some non-baptists also. I had two speeches about worship. The lectures were translated into Ukrainean, and other speeches into Hungarian. Later I will post my message about Worship, here (in Hungarian...). It was good to meet some of my Ukrainean friends, leaders of the Transcarpathian Baptist Association.

Tomorrow we will have the Lord's Supper in Varsolt. I will come back for the afternoon to Pericei. Tonight we had a useful young people's meeting here also, (I arrived home just in time), and two other ones are plenned for thomorrow. We need to pray for our young people as well!
