The effective functioning of diaconal service was the central theme of a two-day program held by representatives of Fida International, a Christian organization, at the headquarters of HGMI in Békés.

The collaboration between the Hungarian and Finnish organizations has a long history. Fida serves needy people around the world, so their representatives were able to effectively share their acquired experiences with the staff of the HGMI. In his opening address, Mission Director László Surman emphasized that the work of love and service often focuses on providing physical assistance, but their primary goal is to demonstrate God’s love to people.

“The relationship with Fida is crucial in the life of our mission, and we can rely on their assistance in many areas. The outbreak of the Ukrainian war was the first instance when they expressed their support for our work in providing aid to refugees,” said László Surman.

During the training held on May 10th and 11th, the presenters, who currently serve in Kenya and Croatia, successfully conveyed the practical knowledge they have acquired through their work.

“Members of the congregations should not forget their mission to change the world around them. We express our love for God most effectively by loving and serving our fellow human beings. All our service activities should bring glory to God,” was emphasized by the presenters.
