Szilárd is moving to Hungary this summer to serve with Acorn Camps 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 equip and train youth leaders through conferences and a part-time course, as well as mentoring through local churches. They also run summer camps to help churches reach out to young people in their communities and provide further training for youth leaders.
Szilárd is from Hungary. Growing up, he had some Christian influence at home but it was not important to him. Szilárd came to London for university and there he began to realise who Jesus is. God used a Christian friend, the Christian Union and a local church to answer Szilárd’s questions and change his heart.
For the last two years Szilárd has been serving as a ministry intern at St James’ Church, Muswell Hill. He is involved with giving talks and leading bible studies for the youth group, alongside training on the Cornhill Bible Training Course. Szilárd has also served with Acorn Camps – leading activities, discussions and seminars on their summer camps.
From September this year, Szilárd will work with Acorn Camps to lead 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. Please use the giving and prayer boxes on this page to set up a regular donation or sign up for Szilárd’s prayer news.
I wouldn’t be writing this update without your support. Your prayers and financial support have made this possible, together with the grace of our Heavenly Father. I am so thankful for your partnership in the gospel.
Recently I discovered that partnership is by definition a two-way thing. It sounds obvious, I know. But there’s a saying for a reason – out of sight, out of mind. I do NOT want that to happen. The Apostle Paul is a brilliant role model for caring for our gospel partners – both ways. So do let me know how you are doing. Respond to this prayer letter via the Crosslinks website or ping me a message on WhatsApp, Facebook or in whatever way you normally reach me. And as you read on, be encouraged that these things have been made possible by you, my partners in the gospel.
