Russ and Lesley Howell

In 1985 we were invited by the Hungarian Baptist Union and German Baptist Mission to come to Hungary to be part of a Valedictory service for a Missionary going to serve in Sierra Leone. As part of our visit there the Baptist Union invited us to Minister in their Churches and so began teaching their churches about the Ministry and Gifts of the Holy Spirit. We were based in Kiskoros Baptist Church, then the largest Baptist Church in Hungary, and started taking teams from HBC several times a year. Our base is now the Good News Foundation in Orgovany, a Church, Conference Centre and Charity, .

We have worked with their leadership through 2 generations visiting 6 weeks each year often taking teams from HBC and ChristChurch Wrexham. We have mentored other Leaders and continue to do so. Russ is also involved with the Mayor and councillors, local schools, local shops and business men. Individuals and groups from Hungary also visit us in North Wales. We continue to be in regular touch by email and other media, preaching via Zoom *. We are hoping to resume visits in 2022.
