Highlights for September 2016

Current news and prayer requests from ACSI Europe

ACSI Europe held its 18th International Student Leadership Conference with 325 participants from 16 countries in Zánka, Hungary on September 28-October 1, 2016.
It was such a blessing to have Bill Stevens as our keynote speaker, who started this event 18 years ago. The theme of the conference was "Picking up the towel of Leadership" based on the Scripture "Now that I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also should wash one another’s feet." John 13:14.
We praise the Lord for the opportunity of leadership training at all levels. During the conference students created an action plan that they take back to their schools and carry it out during the rest of the school year. 
Each year we hear testimonies of young adults who participated SLCs years ago, and how God has changed their life, and has been using them as grown-ups since. This year, we heard from Timea from Ukraine who participated an SLC years ago, and the Lord touched and changed her at the conference. She has become a teacher at one of the Hungarian Christian schools in Ukraine, and now she came with her students as their chaperone. 
We praise God touching and changing the lives of many through these events, and making an impact on their societies through them.
Timea, former SLC participant, now a teacher, is sharing her testimony.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR PRAYERS for each SLC participant prior and during the conference!
Now, please pray that they all may be able to apply what they learned about servant leadership in their communities: at home, at school, in their towns, and for the glory of God's Kingdom.

Timisoara Baptist High School Celebrates 25 Years
Laci Demeter was blessed to participate in the 25 year celebrations of Timisoara Baptist High School on October 9, 2016.
The Christian school movement of Romania, as well as ACSI's role in Eastern-Europe started in this church and city 26 years ago. Right after the Romanian Revolution in 1989, Pastor Peter Dugulescu (pastor of this church) contacted ACSI in the US to ask for help with starting Christian schools in Romania. Since that time God has blessed Romania with more than 80 Christian schools, all because of the vision of those Christian leaders at that time, and the faithfulness and hard work of many others who believed in what God can do through their Christian schools.
Today, you find Christian school graduates at all levels of the society.

The school is praying for his salvation.
Please pray for:
