Serving the Lord, with you!
Ministry Spotlight

The school year has concluded at ICSB.  We still have a pick-up/drop-off day with students and the graduation, but classes are finished.  We petitioned the government to allow for a modified in-person graduation with the graduates and parents and have been approved!  All of our other end-of-year events were virtual.  

I was especially encouraged at the end of the year from the outpouring of love from my staff.  Although we had many challenges this year, the unity within the staff of ICSB High School is a testimony of God's faithfulness.  I am closing out my first year as principal with optimism about what the Lord is doing and will continue to do at our school and I'm looking forward to the impact that we will have for His Kingdom in the coming year.  Please pray for my staff, as many of them will be heading to the United States for support raising this summer and others will remain in Hungary and begin focusing on next year.

ICSB is blessed to have so many Christians, missionary and Hungarian, serving the Lord as part of the ministry taking place.  
Fawn woke up early and felt the Lord putting these words on her heart.
Do you trust me?
This is the question the Spirit of God in me has asked over and over again.  In big moments and small, I am challenged and invited to fully entrust myself, my loved ones, my hopes and dreams, my body, my plans to my Lord and Savior.

The question began when my faith was young.  Looking back, I didn't yet recognize the voice of my Shepherd as I struggled to trust in His work for me.  Over time and in my first year at Taylor University, I came to know that by trusting in Jesus' work on the cross, I had crossed from death to life.  My salvation was not dependent on my goodness or lack there of.  (Ephesians 2:8)

The next question grew and asked, will you still trust me, even in great loss?  My life was happy and pretty free of suffering until my dad suddenly died in an accident.  Not by my own strength or will, but as if God was proving my faith (I Peter 1:6-9), I discovered that, even in great loss, I could trust Him.

For years, the Spirit of God invited me to trust him with the size of our family.  It is not as though I passed the "test" (if I can call it that) with flying colors.  My own weakness and doubt were laid bare over and over again as I struggled to really trust and delight in God's plans for us. (Romans 12:1)

Currently, I'm marveling over these truths: Proverbs 16:9, Proverbs 3:5-6

When I look at the story of our lives, I am just in awe of God's plans unfolding.  When I see just a glimpse of what God has done and is doing, I am so thankful for God's invitation to walk with Him and discover His story for our own lives.  I am challenged to trust Him at every step and my heart cries out, "Oh for grace to trust Him more!"
We are grateful for your prayers and your financial support of our family and the work God has given us here in Hungary.  There are lots of ways for you, our team of supporters, to be personally involved in our ministry.  We want to bless and encourage you by sharing more of what God is doing here.  If you'd like to find out how you can get more involved, reach out to us.  We have lots of ideas!
It's cherry season in Hungary!  Fawn led us to an abandoned cherry grove.  We spent about an hour climbing the trees and filling these buckets with fresh cherries.  Warm pie was soon to follow!
Summer Plans

As things begin to loosen up in Hungary concerning international travel, we are still hoping to be traveling to the United States this summer. There are 4 important purposes for our travel:
  • ABWE training to transition to long-term status
  • Sale of our home
  • Raising support for long-term
  • Reconnecting with friends and family
Please pray for us as we wait on God and trust His plans for us.
