First day of School

Yes, today was our first day of the new school year. We will try and get some photos up soon. All went pretty smooth, that is besides the fact that high school were almost without desks and then the desks that were delivered was from a Hungarian company, whose logo was printed on stickers on the desk marked A S S. Yikes! Lets just say we did not want our high school students finding out about that one!!!! SO praise God we got the stickers off and now all is well, with desks in the room and students to fill them up.
Pam is again teaching Economics 12th, Church History 9th, New Testament and Old Testament for 8th, 7th and 6th. Oliver is teaching US History 10th, Modern World 11th and ELL to high school students (English Language Learners). We are thankful to be back at ICSB again. Thank you for your continued prayers. We are watching a family this week while their parents are away at a Campus Crusade retreat. Its great for Oliver and I to be with a family of teenagers..reminds us of who we really teach.
Keep in touch!

Back in Hungary

Yes, we are back at the International Christian School of Budapest again! God is good and our support is just 12% away from being fully financially supported. Praise God. Thank you for allowing us to be here in Budapest.
This week we have been with the Honsowetz family and also doing teacher orientation at school. It was great to see all of you this summer in America and to come back to family again in Hungary. It helped with the transition. Our school rooms are coming together, we have stuff on the walls (which by the way are painted!) and getting curriculum together for this next year.
While Pam's parents were here we were able to go to Lake Balaton, the largest lake in Central Europe, and they were also able to drive around seeing work, softball and meeting our friends and seeing our ministry.
The theme of our learning path is "unchangeable". God is stable, wise and always with us. As we travel from country to country, from family to family, friend to friend, ministry to ministry the One that is always with us is Christ. The Holy Spirit continues to work and He speaks to us no matter the circumstance or the place, reminding us of His consistency in our lives. The story of Samuel and Israel while they are waiting for the king (eventually David) reminds us of God's Ultimate perfect constant plan. Though we at times have no idea how He is at work, the point is He is WAY ahead of us and is in control. Again and again we are reminded of the way God works in His people, changing us, but never having to change Himself, the Perfect. Praise God for this as we move, go and do. No matter what He is constantly with us and here.

Together again

Yes, it was wonderful! The "crew", Oliver's great friends from high school came together again. It was great to see everyone and their families (pictured beside are 5 of the 8).
We are off to Budapest tomorrow. We leave from Atlanta and get into Budapest Monday, so in case you do not hear from us for a few days we wanted you to be updated! Thank you all for visiting with us so much. We will miss you. School starts on the 20th of August, so lots of preparation and things to do. We leave Alabama feeling excited about this year to come, and overwhelmed with blessings by our great team that helps us get to Hungary and do our ministry there. Hope to see you all soon.
