Hi, I'm Ben Bowden. I minister in Hungary.

About Ben

I grew up in a Christian home and at around the age of 6, I accepted Christ as my Lord and Savior. Over the next 13 years or so, I struggled to understand what God was doing in my life. I felt that over and over, God wasn't blessing me. I believed this because of all of the bullying and started to believe into the lies of Satan that I couldn't do anything for the Lord. Then I travelled to Hungary for the first time. This was where God started to grab my heart and I realized that I needed to shift my focus back solely on Christ. Since that first trip in 2014, God has continuously put the call to ministry on my heart. Now, I am not going to say it has been easy, but through it all God has been pursuing me even when I didn't see it. For the last six summers, I have been serving two weeks in the WOL Hungary camp. Every time I come back, my heart aches to go back. I have always put excuses out there when I know that God wants me to serve in ministry. But, in the past year, God has softened my heart and I know that what God wants from me is to serve. I know that God has a plan, so in reality this is just the beginning of what God is going to do. If there is one thing that has helped me keep my focus on what God is doing and following him it is a quote by Max Lucado. This quote has helped me through so much over the past few months. It says, "God never said that the journey would be easy, but he did say that the arrival would be worthwhile." ~ Max Lucado. In December of 2019, I will be officially a graduate of Cedarville University with a Bachelors Degree in Early Childhood Education.

"For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain." Philippians 1:21
