Bible Study week in Öcsöd, Hungary

The 2 pastors and 6 children of our congregation joined the Bible Study week for children in the Reformed congregation of Öcsöd, Hungary between 28th July - 3rd August. About 35 children with the help of adults spent the week with studies, workshops and trips. The two villages have apart of common history, since during wartimes settlers had been moved from one location to the other.

Devotion and Bible study every morning.
