When we moved out to Hungary in 2013 Acorn Camps had three team members (Andy, Zsófi and Anna) and a host of keen volunteers (from Hungary and the UK) who helped us do the work. In 2018 Krisztián Tóth joined the team – working part time whilst training (full-time!) to be a Baptist pastor.
This brought the balance of the team to two Hungarians and two Brits. This summer, after much prayer and planning, we were delighted to welcome Szilárd Tam into our team as a short-term mission partner through Crosslinks. This brought about a small but significant change: Hungary three – Britain two.
For most mission organisations this is always the aim: to partner with locals who can then develop the work and make it bigger and better. Szilárd has fitted in so well and brings a whole host of skills and experience. Previously he worked at a large Anglican church in London, helping run the youth work whilst attending the Cornhill Training Course. His passion for teaching the Bible well to young people is inspiring and it's so nice seeing him do that immediately with no language difficulties (Something Anna and Andy still find hard!).
Szilárd is also a huge blessing to our family and particularly our kids David, Réka and Emily. We work together running the youth group in our church and we are excited to see that ministry grow in depth and numbers. Praise God for the joy of frontline work – week-in, week-out church-based youth work – and the opportunity this gives us to model bible-based quality teaching.
We also praise God for our second year of the CORE Training course. We have nine youth leaders eager to learn how to teach the Bible more faithfully, relevantly and clearly. Praise God for the way in which he knows exactly what we need. It's great to see that his timing is perfect.
Thank you so much for your ongoing support and prayer. Isten áldjon! (God bless you!)
Andy, Zsófi, David, Réka and Emily
