Holy Places Visited
- Hetednapi Adventista Egyház – Sashalmi Gyülekezet [“Seventh-day Adventist Church – Sashalom Church”], Sashalom, Budapest
Stayed in the Sashalom suburb of Budapest
I revisited the local Seventh-day Adventist Church, where the congregation meet during the weekly Sabbath: Friday evenings and Saturday mornings and afternoons. (The weekly Sabbath is observed from sunset on Friday until sunset on Saturday.)
Here I was warmly welcomed by the church-goers, especially Gabor and singer Vera Kutasy, as well as Andrea, who very kindly translated from Hungarian to English for me. I joined the morning Bible study session, followed by the main service, then a communal vegetarian lunch before the afternoon Bible study session.
Many thanks to everyone at this church for their warmth, friendliness and hospitality.
