yesterday I got a response from the mayor about our request for facilities to operate social services (soup kitchen & 2 pre-schools) in Szeged. the response was "at this time we don't have any buildings that meet the health board requirements". it was a little discouraging, but I guess this just means that we have to think a little "longer term" (maybe doing these things in 2011??). our rental agreement for the church is up in December 2010, so maybe we'll look to move to a different facility where we can have "multi-use" capabilities. please continue to pray with us about how we can be effective for the Kingdom of God here in Szeged.

for those of you who've followed us on facebook you know that my dad was in the hospital a couple weeks ago with some breathing problems. the honest truth is that his health isn't so good. my dad is fully aware of his condition and there is one person who really "inspires" him to get better that that is his granddaughter. both Odi & I are so dad that we aren't as close to my parents as we are to hers. after talking to my dad a couple of times, we think the best thing for us to do, in his current situation, would be for us to spend some time with him. so we're gonna be spending Christmas in California. we're gonna be around from december 8th till january 7th.
we're very excited about this because we know how much of a blessing this will be to my dad. my mom & step-dad will come down to CA during the time we'll be there to see their granddaughter.
a trip like this for us, especially now with a child, is very expensive. not only the plane ticket but also a rental car while we are there. if you'd like to help us on this trip, there is a link on the left side of our blog - "support our ministry" - and you can click on that and donate to us via Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa.
as this will be our first trip to CA with our daughter (and our first trip in 2 years) we'd like to connect with as many of you as possible. we know that it is the holiday season & that there is a lot going on, but if you have time to fit us into your schedule please contact us via e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) so we can begin to plan our time there.
thank you all for your love, prayers & support.
