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
Because of the obvious spiritual needs, Pastor Brian and
Judy Gower from Center Barnstead Christian Church travelled to Word of
Life Hungary to teach at their Bible Institute. They not only were able
to share with students from Hungary, but also taught and interacted with
students from 14 different countries.
The purpose of this trip was 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.
While in Hungary besides their teaching responsibilities, the Pastor and
Judy ministered in a local church.
The Sunday of February 13th,
Pastor and Judy Gower will be giving an update on their trip to Hungary.
