The Rev. Dr. Jon and Amanda Good are endorsed to prepare for ministries of evangelism, discipleship, education and theological education in partnership with the Baptist Union of Hungary. Amanda will assist with music education at the school managed by the Baptist Church in Debrecen, as well as those managed by Hungarian Baptist Aid (HBAid). She will also assist with discipleship ministries of the Baptist Church in Debrecen. Jon will assist the Baptist Church in Debrecen with its evangelistic outreach, church planting and church development ministries, and will assist in the training of Christian leaders through the Union’s seminary. Amanda and Jon will also work with the church planting efforts of HBAid. An excerpt from Jon Good’s April 10, 2017 journal entry:
“ True freedom is only discovered through experiencing and yielding to Christ.
“When Amanda and I visited Budapest last summer, we had our photo taken in front of a symbolic iron curtain. The Iron Curtain was a historical barrier that separated parts of Europe from the rest of the world. Today, there are no occupying armies or cruel dictators, yet the Hungarian people still yearn for freedom. Captivity is widespread in the form of addiction, economic hardship, and hopelessness.
“This is why the gospel message is ‘good news’ for the Hungarian people. As Christians give witness to a hope-filled life, people see that Jesus is the key to freedom. They are enthusiastically embracing the message of Christ. Enrollment in Baptist schools continues to climb, there is a need for more outreach ministry, and new churches are being born. Praise the Lord! People are being set free by the deep and abiding truth of Jesus.”
