- Pray for a safe and fun cookout.
- Pray for students to be strengthened and others to hear the Gospel.
- Pray that the fun event will bring more to the regular Bible study Sarah leads for students.

October 15: New Adult English-Language Bible Study in Győr, Hungary:
Globally Engaged in Outreach (GEO) Missionary Sarah Berta-Somogyi will launch a new adult English-language Bible study in Győr. The desire for this study grew out of the English-language Lutheran worship services that have recently begun
in Győr. In offering the services, it has become clear that there are adults who would also benefit from a time to meet together and encourage one another while studying the Word of God.
- Please pray for the new study to strengthen and encourage Christians, as well as proclaim the Gospel to others.
- Pray for Sarah to be strengthened as they run the group.
- Learn more about the English-language Lutheran worship services.
- Learn more about Sarah and consider supporting her.
October 18, Győr English-Language Worship Service: The next English-language Lutheran worship service will be held in Győr, Hungary.

The service has proclaimed the Gospel to many different people, and new people come every time.
