2015 – a year of changes and challenges
Not as if I would be complaining that last year was too monotonous or boring, but 2015 is looking to be a year full of changes and challenges right from the beginning.
I like to end and also start the year with God, laying it all in His hands, and it was great to receive this scripture for this year: “Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.” (Isaiah 43:18-19)
When I accepted the challenge of being director at Bonus Pastor Foundation, I already knew that it would only be for a certain amount of time, a maximum of 5 years. We moved to Târgu Mureș because of my wife’s studies, and now that this period is almost over, we will be moving back to Odorheiu Secuiesc, where my wife already has a job at the local hospital, and I am looking for a job at the moment. Because of this, a change of directors is going to happen in the first part of 2015, and I’m happy to announce, that István Szabó accepted the challenge from the board and will take over this responsibility from me. István has been working with Bonus Pastor since the beginning of 2014, coordinating the restructuring and reorganizing of Bonus Pastor Foundation. Thank you for praying for us and supporting us in this time of changes.
Hank, one of my good friends, put it this way: change is inevitable, but progress is a choice. May this year be the year of changes, where we not merely change for the sake of change, but also progress in our personal lives, our relationship with God and people, professionally… May this year be a year of change for many addicts, the year of new beginnings, the year of deliverance. May we gather strength for our daily change from God’s wonderful promise, considering how and when these changes should culminate for the believer: “But we all, with unveiled face beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are transformed into the same image from glory to glory, even as from the Lord the Spirit.” (2 Corinthians 3:18)
