Adventures in Budapest

Jessica Lewis

I recently had the privilege to visit Budapest with my school, The Kings University, and our ministry partner, European Initiative.  My team had the opportunity to minister in this beautiful, but lost city. We had an idea of the ministry outreach we would do, but we did not realize the extent of impact that our team was going to have.  Each day, we visited a school to share about the American culture such as fashion, movies, music and sports. Alongside this presentation, we performed creative dramas with the message about the Gospel of Jesus Christ. 

During our time in the schools, I saw the hunger in the students’ lives.  They were searching for something they didn’t even know they could have –a relationship with Jesus! These students understood that without Jesus, their lives would lack hope and purpose, but with Him they could do all things. One of the scriptures I shared was, "…with God all things are possible.” (Matthew 19:26)

Even now, after we have returned to America, our team members receive messages from the Hungarians asking how we are doing.  We get to continue to share about Jesus and encourage them in their studies. Most importantly, we get to help them in their new relationship with Jesus. 

Budapest is awakening spiritually. The people are hungry and desperate for something more than the media has to offer.  My team also got to experience a prophetic night of worship. The service was in Hungarian, but that didn’t stop us from worshiping!  The presence of the Lord was so strong in that place, and I felt the desperation of the people of Budapest who wanted something more.  They are in need of Jesus.  He is the only One who can satisfy them.

I urge you to pray with me for the students and the people who heard about Jesus through our team. We planted many seeds, and we are starting to see the fruit. The enemy wants to steal the seeds, but in Jesus name, these young men and women will know the faithfulness and goodness of God. 

You can also come to Hungary and experience the same things which Jessica experienced. For more information contact European Initiative:   trips@europeaninitiative.com
