Szilárd is serving with Acorn Camps in Hungary for one to three years.
Over 50% of the Hungarian population claim to be Christian but for many it doesn’t affect their everyday life. Most reach adulthood without ever hearing the gospel of the Lord Jesus. Acorn Camps helps Hungarian churches reach teenagers for Christ. They run summer camps to help churches reach out to young people in their communities and train youth leaders through conferences, a part-time course and mentoring.
Szilárd is from Hungary and came to London for university. God used a Christian friend, the Christian Union and a local church to answer Szilárd’s questions about God and change his heart. After he finished his studies, Szilárd was a ministry intern at St James’ Church alongside training on the Cornhill Training Course. In September 2020, Szilárd returned to Hungary to work with Acorn Camps. He is leading the youth groups at a placement church as well as helping with admin and communications and serving on the summer camps.
In order to live and serve in Hungary, Szilárd needs to raise £14,000 per year. This covers Crosslinks orientation, accommodation, food, transport, ministry costs and insurance.
Dear gospel partners,
I wish you a blessed new year! The last year has been hard for all of us – we probably felt the effects of COVID in different ways but I think we all felt them in some ways. Thanks be to God who reminds us in his word that blessings for Christians don’t always mean life is easy or comfortable.
There are many other ways God blesses us: ‘God the Father has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ.’ (Ephesians 1:3) In a New Year’s message I listened to, we were encouraged to make the resolution to be thankful this year. I do believe God has blessed us in many ways even through the struggles of last year. Here are a few things I am thankful for from the end of last year:
