Chilly in Erd

Hello all, well the cold has hit it was -10 C this morning and you can feel the difference in the house, a little snow overnight and more expected in the coming days. Enjoying our first days in hungary, we are currently staying in the OM headquaters here in Erd, we are here with a bunch of others during our training. Apparently everyone and their dog has a dog in this town. We went for a walk yesterday and every single house has a dog, and they are all guard dogs, but lucky for Lynnette they all are fenced in but at some houses you kinda question how long the fence will hold them back. The base is at the top of a hill, and if any of you remember 101 dalmations theres a scene where all the dogs are relying a message from one to the next well lets just say that hungaryin dogs have a lot of messages to send day and night. Its kinda like a giant choir of dogs well thats if you enjoy barking. One of the americans is currently trying to find some sleeping pills so he can drug the neighbours dog and get some peace and quiet. Luckly our room is on the opposite side of the building. We attended a hungarian baptist church yesterday for their service which was neat to be at. Next week we are supposed to lead some singing and stuff so that should be interesting. We are currently going through the biblical basis for missions. During the weeks we will go through effective evangalism techniques, leading effective meetings and even vechicle maintaince, apparently this is really valuable because of the older vans being used and being stuck in a remote area and not even knowing how to ask for help is very much fun. We also found out that Lynnette and I will be mainly working with the OVM team where we will be cruising the country with a converted circus trailer bring literature, a movie screen and working with local churchs to reach their villages. Please pray that God would use this time to mold us into servants of him and that we would be able to digest as much of the material here as possible. till next time

Sounds like quite a different world out there....you both are quite courageous to commit to two years in a foreign country with new surprises around every corner! Thanks for all the updates.
