The month of July of 2009!!!!

WOW…. A month passed by again, and God done sooo many things in me, in my life and around me!! He is sooooo faithful, and He is a God of Wonders. As we read in Isaiah 55:8-9...

“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD.
For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. “

Yes, His ways are way higher than ours… for sure way higher and more amazing than mine ever could be!!! He blows my mind and steals my heart and soul… and the same time blesses me soo beyond my every dream or imagination!!

I try not to write soo much this time… but put the month’s events into pictures and comment them… And if any of you would like to hear more, please let me know and I will tell you more about all God is doing… I know you get so many e-mails and sometimes we have no time to read them… So I will try this way and see how it works… Please let me know!! May God bless you and keep you!! In His grace and love!!!

With my girls and with Martha and Don Patten, Jeni, Sam and Solo… we started to hike the mountains close by more often… It is such an amazing experience… every time we have a great time of fellowship and prayer-worship together… and we always find something new up there… like just few days ago we found a small hidden village with about 10 huts and two families who speak only Hausa and a little broken English… Please pray that I can learn that language and be able to reach out to them..


We had a team here from CC Corvallis to help out the church. They stayed for 2 weeks and God done a lot in and through them. We are getting ready for Prince and Flo`s court wedding… It was good to see Amanda again who came last year as well during the summer and brought up a lot of memories of God’s faithfulness and goodness!!! He is amazing!!!


This is the backyard of the church when the team came …… and after they left!! God provided through them to build a basketball/tennis court for the church… It will give great opportunity to reach out to the youth and for our guys to exercise… Please pray for protection…I have some really vivid memories of an another court and all the times in the hospital because of it! J …


Because I was surrounded with Americans on the 4th of July… we celebrated it… It was a lots of fun!! That apple pie was one of the best ever… made by Niki and Jeni!! Yaaammmyyyy!!!

With Solomon we went to visit this Hausa family for few times now… They don’t speak English…but Solo speaks Hausa, so he is my translator during those times… It`s weird to be on the other side… but I’m blessed!! They live in 4 of those huts you see behind her… Pretty impressive!! Pray God opens the door to share with them and really that I will be able to communicate with them!!


Every week we have something new, some changes in the church… The beginning of the month we got some black paint and painted all the poles in the church- it was soo much fun… and they just started to do the floor in the church… level it, cement it and put tiles at the end… Please pray for God’s provision for that and for the finishing work of the ceiling. It would be nice for Prince and Flo`s wedding to have a nice floor and not having the guest in the dust… and just for the church members too, not to go home so dirty after every church service!! Thank you!! God is Jehova Jireh!! He is sooo faithful, even just look at the church, at the beginning of this year we did not have even a property… now there are the buildings and a great court, that we can even use for events!!

Family visitations… It amazes me how much it means to them when we eat their food. Easy way to bring joy and blessings. Nigerians are really hospitable people!! May God bless them!


Wedding anniversaries… Brett&Glory +Bell and Sam& Marian +Grace…. Both couple got married the last summer and God blessed them with beautiful babies…


With Niki and Jeni getting ready for the court wedding of Prince and Florance…. They have one more to go… On the 15th of August… please pray for them!!


And… on the 25th of July, after praying for a pretty long time about what God has for us, my amazing Solomon asked me to marry him… and I said yes. J So, all of you who were wondering what will happen with that relationship… God works in it and through it soo much. I`m so thankful for him and all the Lord is doing in my life using him! Please pray for us, as we seek the Lord according to the future. Right now we don’t have any specific plans. But I know we NEED God’s guidance, wisdom, love, grace, mercy, peace, protection, provision and His understanding in our relationship. He is the One who started it, and I know He is faithful and He will finish it as well!! Pray for the intercultural difficulties that it would be easy to learn and accept each others background and get a good understanding of it!! Thanks for all the encouragements, supports, prayers you given me!!!

Praise Him for:
- His protection and provision
- good health
- the rain and the cooler weather
- all He provided for the church… financially, new jobs for those who were looking for a while, for new lives,
- His Word He given us, and all the blessing that comes out of studying it!!
- for the Monday night prayer meetings… they are incredible blessings
- for Solomon and our engagement

Please pray for:
- the filling and leading of the Holy Spirit daily in my life!
- wisdom in the ministry, especially after Beth, Jeni and Niki leaves…what are the things God wants me to do extra than what I am already doing!!
- for the youth of Nigeria… they are soo lost, and corrupted
- for unity in the leadership
- provision for Prince&Flo, Joshua&Ele for their upcoming weddings
- leading and guiding in our relationship with Solomon… that may God be the center of it, and He would be glorified in all we do!! For both of us to fall in love with Jesus more and more every day!! For provision for him for a new job… He had to leave the old one he had…
- for the Hausa people…for salvation, and for me to be able to learn the language
- spiritual growth in the church!!
- protection in the marriages in the church
- provision for finishing construction projects in the church
-continues good health, protection form accidents as I take public transportation, and from sicknesses like malaria, typhoid, or anything else
- wisdom for me when people come to me with needs… what to do and how to pray for them!!

May the Lord God bless you and keep you in His perfect will!!

I love and appreciate all of you! Would be good to hear from you!!

In His perfect love and grace!!!

Newsletter 2009 February... and beginning of March

John 16:16-17, 2.Cor. 1:20

I know I’m late and I’m sorry. It’s almost the end of March and I did not have time to sit down and write to you!

The day since I decided I will leave to Nigeria on the 17th of April, the enemy does not leave me for a second peace… at least this is how I feel. God did so many amazing things and blessed me in so many ways, but the dark side is not happy with all the Lord is doing. In one sense I’m encouraged by it, because it shows that the Almighty God is preparing something big for me, and for the team I take for the 10 days outreach to Abuja, Nigeria.

On Valentine’s day my little nephew David Koen turned 1 yr old!! I can’t believe it. He and Sarah grow SO fast, I don’t like it, especially now that I will leave and only God knows when I see them next, along with all my beloved “kids” and families I have here in Vajta and all over Hungary or any other side of this world… So that part is the hardest right now, to prepare my heart to be separated from the world I know well. But the Lord promised that He never leaves me nor forsakes me, so I won’t be never alone, even when is lonely or strange.

For a week my sweet friend Michele and her fiancé Greg came to visit and had a blessed time with them. I love how God does with those little miracles. He knows how He can bless us… like this last week, my sweet sister Gracie and her family Tim, Thomas and Mila surprised me for the speakers week, even we could not spend so much together it was such a blessing to have them and spend even just a short time together before I leave. God is soooo good!!!

The team that God appointed for the 10 days outreach is amazing! I got the best girls and guy …they are the best because they are from the Lord and He knows exactly whom He wants to use during this trip… Please pray for unity and all the details we still need to leave in less then 4 weeks!! Pray for them and for their heart to be ready for all the Lord wants to use them for and all He wants to teach them on this trip!!

This past week was we call it “the speakers week” of this semester. During this time of the semester we have pastors and missionaries invited by the leadership from different churches, countries. This semester we had the privilege to hear some amazing teachings from Pastor Fidel Gomez, Pastor Thomas Powell, Pastor Alipio Amaral and Pastor Tim Warholic. I had the privilege to translate Pastor Alipio and during the women session Theresa Fidel. If you have some free time it’s so worth to listen to them. You can go to http://web.ccbce.com/ext/media/Speakers_Week_Spring_2009/ and able to watch or download them. Seriously if I would be the only person there even then all the teaching would be worth to be told… They all spoke to me so much… about trust, serving, surrendering, loving, stepping out in faith, walking in faith and holding on God’s promises He given me… mentioning only few things! Encourage you to listen to them!!

Yesterday… After a crazy, busy week…month, yesterday morning my sissy Anna and a girl from the Kaposvar church, Tundi jumped into the car, that Andi and Arpi lent us to go to Kaposvar and taught and shared at the women’s day at Icu&Gyuri Kolesnikov`s home. (they are the pastor and his wife who leads the Calvary Chapel there). For any of those who don’t know, that is the church I got saved almost 10 years ago. We got there around 9 a.m and had a great morning in prayer, worship and my amazing, beautiful Anna taught on John 15, abiding in Christ. It is such an honor and privilege to see her teach and be used by the Lord. God is the God of miracles and grace and love and impossible!!! I know the Lord has some BIG things stored for her and I can’t wait to see all of it!! We had a great lunch- all the ladies brought some homemade amazingness!! The afternoon we had some worship again and first Tundi shared about the Lord is doing in her life and teaching her and I closed the day sharing my testimony and all He is teaching me right now… Trusting Him and don’t look to the circumstances, no matter how things look know and hold on to His promises, because He is faithful and will fulfill them… might not happen in my way and timing… but it WILL happen in His perfect timing! So I try not to be anxious and nervous about all seems overwhelm me, but look at Him Who will finish that work what started in me and accomplish it all for His glory! So we had a blessed time with the ladies and girls!

Nigeria… We applied for our visas with the team almost 3 weeks ago, and because they want some extra papers from Nigeria they did not touch our applications yet. Prince has a hard time to getting them, so please pray for some miracle that the process will speed up and we will be able to get them, and not only the day or days before we have to take off! Honestly it’s really frustrating and the enemy knows my weak points…and that is the one, because I feel responsible for the team and don’t want the whole thing to happen in the last minute!! Other things, they have our passports and 3 of my team members should go to England for a weekend outreach this upcoming weekend and they need their passports, so please pray for that we can get them somehow.

The medical donations are started to grow in a pile in one side of my room! For all of you who gave anything THANK YOU!! I know the Lord will bless every single gauze and pill till the last piece. He has a perfect plan with all of it and He will use it! He knows all the needs and all you donated will meet the right need, I believe that! So thank you again! Praise the Lord for all the donations and for the donors as well!!

I’m blessed to see all the great people God put into my life! You are all such a blessing to me!!

May the Lord bless you and keep you in all you do for Him and strengthen you in your weaknesses!

Praise Him:
- provision for the team and me for the tickets to Nigeria
- all the medicines and medical supplies
- for His faithfulness and goodness He shown upon my life
- for the blessing of having His call upon my life
- for His work He done in and through me in the last 7 years at Vajta
- for His promises
- for been accepted by GO! Ministries and make easier my supporting from the States!!!

Would you pray with me for:
- His grace would cover me daily and be able to be open for all He has for me while I’m here and not close up to people!! Make the pain that this goodbye causes would be as small as possible, my heart to be ready to leave all my beloved people behind
- peace, joy and the ability not to miss any of His blessings and opportunities to be used by Him in the next month I’m still here
- finish my race well
- the visas for me and for the team as well, for all the papers we need or just pray that by some miracle they won’t even ask it anymore but issue the visas… against the enemy’s attacks… favor in the eyes of the Nigerian government,
- wisdom in making decisions what are the most important things I have to do before I leave and may God multiply my strength and my time
- next weekend I go home to say goodbye to my Mom and my relatives… for His grace and love, and opportunity to be able to share with those who don’t know the Lord Jesus yet… their salvations
- the medical donation… ahead to pass the Nigerian border without any problems and would be able to fulfill God’s purposes
- the team for unity and protection for the whole time
- prepare the ministry in Jikwoyi for me, and all the people’s heart He wants to use me to touch them
- for total recovery result tomorrow, when I have to go back to the doctor for a year check up after my surgery…

Thank you for all your encouragements, prayers and support!!! May the Lord bless you and keep using you for His glory!!

In His love and grace!!

News about Nigeria!!!

My dear Friends and Family!!!

First of all I really hope that all of you are doing well and the Lord is blessing you daily with His presence and you get closer and closer to Him! I want to say thank you for all your support and encouragement and for all the prayers you said and hopefully will say for me!GOD hears them all and because He is as He says He is faithful and will never give up on us!

I am really dying to tell you the news!!... The news is I need more of your prayers and support then I ever had before. He gave me the date on going to Nigeria!!!! I still can`t believe it or comprehend it completely, but I know it is happening... so please pray for me!!! I will go with an outreach team from the College and when they come back I will stay there for now it seems for a year and after that.... He knows only. Now He asks me to trust Him and not worry about things and all the "what ifs…” and the things will come...Matthew 6:33-34. He knows it all and what I have to keep before my eyes and remember in my heart over and over again!

So it means my time in Vajta is almost over and that thought is really hard to digest... not having my Family and babies with me for God knows how long!!! But He will never owe us, so I know He will give me others whom I can love... that`s not the same but...He knows all He has stored for me. It`s hard... it will be 7 years in few days when I moved here, not knowing even a bits of all the miracles He had done in my life during this time. He is good and faithful and wants those who are willing to do whatever He asks them to do!! Now He asks me to leave my family and friends and He will bless it hundredfold.
Praise Him for:
-His faithfulness, His love and goodness
-all He has done already and still will do in our lives
-opening the door for me to move there for this time of my life
-all the people -for you all!!!! - in my life who make it easier and more beautiful!!
-His past, present and future provision

And please pray for:
-my heart to be open and willing to do all He asks me to do
-the Spirit`s leading and strengthening through this transition in my life
-my Mom and family to see His work and understand a little at least why am I doing this, for them to be comforted by God`s peace and love
-my heart that it won`t shut off in this following 2,5 months for all those who are close to me here but really I could enjoy this time
-the ministry in Nigeria to be ready for me
-the ministry here in Vajta because it has many changes beside I leave it as well
-His provision for all the areas I will need to live there and serve Him there!
-the team which will come with me, that it would be put together and led by the Lord and be a blessing for the church and the missionaries in Abuja
-unity within the team in both ministries
-the new students as the semester starts tomorrow!

Thank you for everything!!!

May the Lord bless you and keep you in His perfect will!!

Love you and appreciate you all!!
