Thanks to American private donations, fire is coming to the needy


Larry in the News

Recently, a Serbian newspaper interviewed Larry and published this article:

Firewood for the needy

7 March 2018, 12:14

Two and a half years ago, an American from Illinois living in Hungary, Larry Stanton, made contact with the Baptist Church in Pacséri and Bácskossuthfalva, originally with the aim of assisting refugees from near-east. Since then, Larry has been partnering with the Hungarian Baptist Charity Service for winter firewood for the families in need in the two villages.

“The elderly or sick people in need are usually the center of our attention. The fact that we can do this is thanks to our sister churches in the States; my family visits the USA at Christmas and during the summer vacation to organize collections in our supporting churches. We have not met these families before, we just knock and bring firewood. Many people are very happy, but also stunned, touched by, do not believe it. We get a variety of reactions,” said the American-born charity.

Zoltán Nyúl, pastor, Larry's host, told us that his guest was trying to help in two ways this winter.

“We arrive with a motorized saw and cut up the old trees in the yard; so far, about 30 families have requested this. For families that don't have their own trees to cut, we have supplied about 300 cubic meters of firewood so far, buying wood from a contractor,” said Zoltán Nyúl.
