Word Of Life Hungary
In a recent
survey, more than 53% of Hungarian people stated that they do not
believe in any sort of Supreme Being. As a result the spiritual decline
in Hungary has been a steady downward spiral in the social fabric. One
of every five adult Hungarian men is an alcoholic, and the suicide rate
is once again on the rise. In addition, 630,000 children and young
people come from broken homes, which is more than 42% of the total
number of children living in this country.
the obvious spiritual needs, Pastor Brian and Judy Gower from Center
Barnstead Christian Church will be traveling to Word of Life Hungary at
the end of the month to teach at their Bible Institute. The Bible
Institute which officially began in 1989 is located on an 18th century
77 acre historic castle property. The mission of WOL Hungary is the
evangelism and discipleship of the youth of Hungary and Central Europe
through means consistent with the Bible, for the building up and
strengthening of the Church of Jesus Christ - with excellence, with
enthusiasm, with integrity, and with a servant’s heart.
mission in mind, the purpose of this trip will be to teach the students
the Bible, so in turn the students can go back into their countries and
teach the life changing truths of God’s Word. Not only will they be
sharing with students from Hungary, but also teaching and interacting
with students from 15 different countries.
