Goodbye Sweet Marko

In August 2010, we had the privilege to faciliate a missions trip to Miskolc, Hungary.  We teamed with Good Sports International and took a team to work at two orphanages and a refugee camp.  We spent the majority of our time at the orphanage in Miskolc.  We grew to love the children and some really captured our hearts.  One of those little ones was Marko.
We soon learned that Marko was very sick. He had a heart condition.  Despite his illness, he was active, happy, pleasant and loved to give big hugs.  We learned today that Marko lost his battle. This is a tragedy, but we know that Marko is healthy and happy with Jesus.  We know that his young life had such an impact on so many - we know that because he impacted our lives.  Please pray for the children at the Miskolc orphanage...Marko was their little brother in so many ways and he will be missed!  Pray for the orphanage staff and the staff of Good is a time of grief and sadness.
