Favorite Scripture

"Come to Me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and my burden is light." (Matthew 11:28-30) The year my mom died, this scripture spoke to me about rest and comfort in the Lord. (I also was very proud our team memorized the genealogy in Matthew.)

Questions & Answers
Did you receive any other special quizzing awards? If so, what?

I won individual competition in all categories in our Conference or in the region.

How did Quizzing affect you as a teen?

It gave me great motivation to learn the Bible. It also provided a wonderful group of people with whom to learn, compete, and grow. I cherish those days.

What difference has quizzing made in your life to this day?

Having so much Scripture memorized or at least familiarized helped me in studying generally, and in studying the Bible. It also helped me when I had to teach in Hungarian. I was quicker to know the reference and tell it to others in Hungarian. It has taught me what is possible for our minds!

Are you presently involved in Bible Quizzing in any way or have you been since you were a quizzer? If so, how?

I helped coach teams at Pearce Memorial FMC and at Park Ridge FMC. We have demonstrated quizzing in Hungary, and used the format for one of our English classes to test basic knowledge.

What ministries are you currently doing? How are you presently active in serving the Lord?

I have been a FM missionary since 1998 (through to the present) in Hungary/Europe. We have been church planting, and I also led a youth group.
