As part of Lehigh Presbytery-Worldwide Ministries covenant and partnership with the Hungarian Reformed Church in Romania, we are hosting two global interns from Romania. Csongor Tussai is from the Hungarian Reformed Church-Transylvania District and Sara Antal Forizs from the Hungarian Reformed Church-Kiralyhagomellek District.
These two young adults are here for four weeks, July 18-August 17, 2019. The first two weeks they will share their culture and heritage with the youth at Kirkwood Camp. On the weekends they will be staying with their host families, worshiping a the local churches and seeing the sights in the U.S. Joe & Noralee Manzek from the First Presbyterian Church of Easton has graciously offered to host Sara Antal Forizs.
