Budapest – On 7th November the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America’s (ELCA) Young Adults in Global Mission (YAGM) Central Europe missionaries were officially welcomed to Hungary by Bishop Tamás Fabiny, the Presiding Bishop of the Lutheran Church in Hungary.

Bishop Fabiny led a devotional based off of Psalm 9, leading the group with the reminder that God does not forget the poor and the oppressed. After the devotional, the YAGM missionaries each introduced themselves, as well as shared about their sites of service. Bishop Fabiny also gave a short presentation on the Lutheran Church in Hungary, as well as all of the ministries that they are involved in. Friendly conversation was shared over pizza and coffee. 

All YAGM missionaries serve in community empowerment projects, as well as worship with Lutheran communities in the communities in which they serve. Seven YAGM missionaries serve in Hungary: Budapest, Piliscsaba, Pilis, Nyíregyháza, Szeged, and Szarvas.  Three YAGM missionaries serve in Serbia: Novi Sad and Belgrade.
