Show Notes

During this time of prayer, Herbie Newell identifies how we can pray the country of Hungary.

Colossians 2:2-4

  • Pray for the country as a whole.  Many Hungarians call themselves Christians but most families have described it as a spiritually dark country.  Catholicism and Eastern Orthodox are strong religious traditions in Hungary.
  • Pray that our families will continue to share the gospel when they travel and for opportunities for our staff to be lights in the darkness to the on the ground team.
  • Pray that the Ministry of Human Resources Department of Family and Demographic Affairs Central Authority will continue to be in favor of international adoptions and see the urgency in preparing paperwork for children.
  • Pray for Judith Sebestyen, our contact at the US Embassy who always helps our families.
  • Hungary does not maintain a waiting child list, so pray for the children as they wait in orphanages or foster homes for their forever families.
  • Pray that foster families will see the need to spend one on one time with the children and not just see foster care as a means to receive money.
  • Pray for the discrimination against the Roma children and population as a whole. Pray the Lord would protect these children from discrimination and provide forever families for them.
  • Pray for bonding, attachments, and a smooth in country process for adopting families.
  • Pray families will share the gospel with George, Adam, and Rita and enjoy their time away as a family.
  • Pray for a family in country finishing their process.  They bring their daughter home December 17!
  • Pray for our 3 families waiting to travel and our ten families waiting on a referral.
  • Pray for our in country team:  George, Adam, Rita, Dr. Boros and Cornell.  Pray for health and endurance while families are in country.
  • Pray for our Lifeline team: Josh, Jana, Brianna, Toria, and Sasha as they serve our families.
