Our family lived and served in Budapest from 2002 to 2004, and we have lived in Vác since October 2005. We teach English to partially support ourselves. Otherwise we work among both Deaf and hearing Hungarians in order to show the love of God, share the good news of Jesus Christ, and encourage churches to be led by God's Spirit instead of by human rules or traditions.

Serving in Vác among the Deaf and the hearing

This Week's Prayer Requests:
Wednesday, September 7, 2016

  • Doug here. In previous weeks we have asked you to pray  about our priorities and commitments and the weekly schedule that will result from those decisions. Lea's class schedule this year allows her to sleep later than in previous years, so I am looking forward to living with a woman who gets enough rest. :-)
  • Please pray for our churches, that we are open and honest with each other. Please pray that God's people become more like what he wants us to be. Also, pray that we rededicate ourselves to growing closer to God and submitting ourselves to serve God and do his will.
  • I have still made no commitment to the Deaf School this semester. My daily schedule has not become clear yet. Please continue to pray that I use my hours wisely, love God first and most, and love people by serving them.

Nothing of eternal value happens without prayer. We deeply appreciate your prayers for us (see current requests in the center column), and, as Paul does, we encourage you to pray continually... not only for us!


We encourage you to give generously to worthy causes that you care about... and not just money!


Whether down the hall, across the street, or to a far country, you can follow where God calls.
