Some thoughts about our group from our past and present members...

1. "Because studying alone in a foreign land can be testing to one's faith, I am thankful that God provided such a wonderful family of believers here in Budapest: students from many different countries but all excited about worshipping, knowing and serving Him. We had a lot of fun together, and also helped, encouraged and prayed for those in need. It was an awesome time of fellowship!"

2. "The International Christian Fellowship was a sort of a harbour for my soul. Our meetings between classes and all kind of assignments were the breaks when I could stop for a while and remember Who is my Lord.This was the place where I shared my needs and where I was supported in my prayers by my sisters and brothers in Christ. The Fellowship was a real blessing for me."

2. "It was God's blessing for me. When one has to live far from home and family, in an unknown world called CEU, gradually, like it or not, intense studies and homesickness become depressing. In such a world our meetings incited/animated me for living and non-abstract relationships with the Lord Jesus Christ. It is amazing how students from different countries and of different characters became my sisters and brothers. And these words are not just a Christian usage. I really feel family bounds connecting me with my brothers and sisters that I had in CEU. I thank our Creator for this grace, for this opportunity of fellowshipping with Christian students, for their prayers that helped me in my studies, private needs, and other aspects of life. Thanks to the lectors from outside CEU who shared with us their experience, knowledge and love of our God. May God bless all participated and helped in forming this group. I pray for its prosperity and that it may bring to the CEU community salvation, love and freedom of true Christianity. I pray for prosperity of our group and believe that future generations of the CEU students will be blessed by the service of our group."

Some Food for thought...

"Are you motivated by the love of Christ." Saint Paul

"He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose" Jim Elliot

"Remember your creator during your youth: when all possibilities lie open before you and you can offer all your strength intact for his service. The time to remember is not after you become senile and paralized! Then it is not too late for your salvation, but too late for you to serve as the presence of God in the midst of the world and the creation. You mus take sides earlier - when you can actually make choices, when you have many paths opening at your feet, before the weight of necessity overwhelms you." Jacques Ellul
