Posted on September 6, 2017 Pray for Amanda and Jon Good soon to be serving in ministries of evangelism, discipleship, education and church planting in Hungary

The Rev. Dr. Jon and Amanda Good are preparing for ministries of evangelism, discipleship, education and theological education in partnership with the Baptist Union of Hungary.

Amanda will assist with music education at the school managed by the Baptist Church in Debrecen, as well as those managed by Hungarian Baptist Aid (HBaid). She will also assist with discipleship ministries of the Baptist Church in Debrecen.

Jon will assist the Baptist Church in Debrecen with its evangelistic outreach, church planting and church development ministries, and will assist in the training of Christian leaders through the Union’s seminary. They will also work with the church planting efforts of HBAid.

Amanda and Jon are looking forward to their upcoming commissioning in Michigan next month. Their move to Hungary is much anticipated by their family, prayer network and Hungarian partners.

They write: We are in the midst of cross-cultural training and language acquisition study. You can think of it as Missionary Boot Camp. A typical day starts with early morning exercise, coffee, prayer, more coffee, and bible study. This is followed by classes, lunch with classmates, application and team activities. Our children are enthusiastically soaking up their studies while having fun with other missionary kids. All of us are so grateful to all of you whose gifts have enabled us to learn and grow during this time.

Second Corinthians 4:5 is a key verse in our training: “For what we preach is not ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, and ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake.“

We are looking forward to serving the people of Hungary because Christ is at work in the most amazing ways. Teachers are rejoicing in the freedom to talk about their faith. After-school programs invite students and their families to become disciples of Jesus. There are so many new believers that there is a need for new churches and leadership training.

Help us respond while the window of opportunity is open. We are at 93% of our personalized monthly support goal. We are so thankful for every one of our partners!
