Hungary Bible Museum 2015





Bibles museum

Exciting things are happening with our Hungarian ministry partners. Pastor Gusztav Fodor and his wife pastor churches in two small villages. A few months ago he contacted us with a vision for a new outreach. From past experience of working together we knew this idea would be good and Fruit of the Vine sowed into this project.  Lord willing we plan to visit them later this summer and be a part of their work.

 

Here is his story……

Last Year about 300 000 tourists drove thru the village of Tiszaderzs during the tourist season, because of the developing Tisza-Lake. The tourist drove thru the village,  but our church is closed. Our answer is for that great possibility, to make something for God, with which we can invite tourists, and speak for them about salvation!  We would make a Bible museum.

We want to stop people, and to invite them to the church, to look at the Bible-Museum, to hear wonderful things about the Bible, and to look the more than 400 different types of Bibles and songbooks and prayer books. If yearly we will have about 1000-2000 visitor, it will be fantastic!

The biggest reason of organizing the Bible Museum is: to speak about God, to speak about the Gospel, to speak about Salvation in Jesus!

We have already Bibles in foreign languages: Norwegian, Ukrainian, Russian, Slovakian, Bulgarian, Arabic, Dutch, 40 types of English, French, Finn, Turkish, Kurd, Modern Greek, Asyr, Chinese, Urdu, Estonian, and Romanian. We have about 150 types of Hungarian Bibles.  We have about 80 types of prayer books and songbooks. We also have a Roman Catholic and Lutheran corner in the Museum, where you can find Bibles, songbooks and prayer books.

The oldest Bible is from 1760, and we have several reprint Bibles from 1590!  New Bibles have been purchased to distribute to our guests that want to know more about our Lord.

What we want in the future:

  • To do something for the church to bring it back to life again.
  • To share the Gospel message and not only show them old Bibles but to present them with new ones
  • Replace some of the old furniture with new display cases.

This is the small story of the Bible Museum!

April 12 will be the official opening of the renovated church, and the Bible Museum.

Please pray for this project!
