One Year Challenge
This week we welcome Budapest, Hungary as the newest One Year Challenge site! The Budapest Church of Christ is looking for brothers and sisters with spiritual ambition to impact Hungary for Christ, one person at a time. They want to restart the campus ministry and reach the over 150,000 students studying in Budapest. They also want to restart a young professionals ministry. You can learn more at the One Year Challenge website.
So far in 2017, we've received 56 registrations from disciples interested in a One Year Challenge! At the same time last year, we'd had only 39 registrations. We're on track for over 200 OYC registrations this year.
This week, we added a new campus One Year Challenge site – Boone, North Carolina!
Boone is a typical college town: it's top employer is Appalacian State University, and the student population exceeds the local population. The new church planting is led by Tim and Brooke Kidwell and is focussed on reaching students. Already there have been two baptisms! You can learn more about this OYC site here.
This week, one of the OYC guys returns after his honeymoon, and we celebrate a baptism in Berlin. Welcome, Katarina, to the family of God! We pray for many more to come to faith in Jesus in Berlin, and all over the world.
What if I don't know German or Norwegian? Can I still do an OYC? The OYC guys talk about a frequent concern of those wanting to serve abroad—language.
