In February and March, we learned about the spiritual awakening which spread across Eastern Europe prior to WWII. If you missed those posts and would like to read them, here are the links: A Pre-WWII Great Awakening in Europe and
A Message of Hope in a Time of Need - Eastern Europe, 1937-1939.

Today the story moves to . . . Hungary

Dr. Csia was burdened to see God work in his country, refusing to accept the attitude of many that revival in Hungary was impossible.
