First Baptist Church, Pell City, on missioncomment (0)
February 23, 2012
Ed Glasscock, who attends First Baptist Church, Pell City, spent Jan. 6–20 in Budapest, Hungary, teaching from Matthew at the Word of Life Hungary Bible Institute.
Glasscock taught 57 students from 12 countries during the day and met with students and families in the evenings. He also shared a sermon Jan. 15 at a small rural church in Tóalmás, a village about 35 miles from Budapest.
Hungary’s population is 2 percent born-again Christian, Glasscock said, so he went to Budapest to “minister to the body of Christ and encourage the Christians there.”
But he said he was inspired by the believers in Hungary.
“[Christianity] isn’t a cool thing to do in Budapest,” Glasscock said. “At the church (and the institute), you could feel the sincerity and intensity of what they were doing.”
He said he wants to teach another course at the institute in the future.
