Making a Difference Together: Looking Back on 2022

Thank You for All Your Support This past Year.

Here Is a Look at All We Accomplished Together in 2022.





  • Relationships

    • We spent much of this past year investing in individuals, children, and families across Hungary​

    • In Tatárszentgyörgy, we've worked hard to keep our team together and deepen friendships 

    • We concentrated on serving Géza and Ildikó and stayed committed to their vision

  • Youth

    • We invested a lot of resources into the youth of Tatárszentgyörgy, by teaching English at the school and leading weekly youth groups​

  • Café Construction

    • This project, a large reason for us being here has asked a lot of us this past year. We celebrate the recent completion of the construction and remain hopeful that our investments will begin to yield fruit



  • Ukrainian Outreach

    • Border Relief & Refugee Support​

      • Made 4 trips to the border, providing rides for families needing Visas, unloading and re-loading trucks, and organizing warehouses with goods heading into Ukraine​

      • Provided a week's vacation at Lake Balaton as well as additional financial support for the Timoka Family, a Ukrainian Roma Gypsy Family who were forced to leave their home

  • Coffeehouse 

    • Construction

      • Invested $12,261 into the renovation of the space​

      • Worked closely with Géza, Ildikó, Miki, and the workers to negotiate and create solutions for ongoing project obstacles caused by rising costs due to inflation, as well as material and worker shortages

    • Fundraising 

      • Met with staff, then drafted, and submitted an application for what would become a $26,000 grant from Trinity Church to complete the Coffeehouse​

    • Building a Team

      • Provided a trip to Gyergyószentmiklós, Romania for 6 team members and their children, many had never flown before, to observe and learn about a Coffeehouse Ministry there​

    • Operational Planning  ​

      • Cullen's coffeehouse and leadership experience earned him the responsibility of planning, preparing, and making important decisions on the future operations of the coffeehouse ​

      • Sarah's administrative gifts and organizational expertise earned her the responsibility of documenting, analyzing, and creating important spreadsheets throughout the construction phase. This will continue as we prepare and eventually open the coffeehouse
