A few weeks ago, our church (located in the panhandle of Florida) sent a team of 8 men to Budapest, Hungary, to be a part of what God is doing through the One Mission Society Hungary team. Together, we spent sweat, blood, and forints (Hungarian currency).
Most of our energy went into demolition (the first step of renovation!) of a building the team is preparing as a multi-use ministry space. We worked hard alongside the OMS Hungary team, but the work was secondary.
Over the course of our week, we experienced radical hospitality. We felt the loving acceptance of our Lord through the over-the-top hospitality of the OMS Hungary team.
We saw a team with highly refined skills and strategic vision. Every member of the team told us stories about where God is going in Hungary and how they fit into the kingdom plan. The Hungary team is poised to move forward in power, everyone using their skills in service of a singular strategic vision.
We felt love, and we saw unity. The One Mission Society Hungary team recognizes each member’s individual personality and skill set, and they take advantage of their diversity to reach more people for Christ! Different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit. OMS Hungary is not a group of loosely associated cowboys and one-woman-shows; they are truly a team!
We were blessed to be a part of their team for the week. We felt like family. We were impressed by their skill and vision. And we expect to see more great things in Hungary as the team continues to follow the Holy Spirit.
We look forward to seeing some of this progress through update letters and photos; and, God willing, we expect to see some of it in person. God used the Hungary team to build something special among our Crosspoint men. We don’t take that lightly, and we hope our partnership only grows deeper over time.
