It’s not easy being a pastor. Especially if you’re a pastor in a culture where people rarely say, “Good job” about anything, where “encouragement” greeting cards are expensive and rarely given, where no one’s heard of anything called Pastor Appreciation Month. In other words, in Europe, where encouragement is simply not ingrained in the culture.
Pastors in Hungary are among those who serve their congregations with joy and energy all year, often with very little encouragement, let alone rest or refreshment. Which is why Entrust’s annual camp for Hungarian pastors and their families – underway now – is so appreciated here.
Take just a moment now to pray for each pastor, each spouse, each kid at camp. Ask God to refresh, rejuvenate, encourage, inspire, maybe even heal, each one. Ask God to strengthen Entrust’s Mark Van Bebber and Monty Taylor as they lead and serve at this camp. Pray that this camp, ending tomorrow, will lead to a year of even more excellent ministry in Hungary, to the glory of God.
