About the Book
Reverend Stephen Szilagyi encounters a boy with a crooked back on a street corner in 1988 Communist-controlled Hungary. The events which follow inspire him to found the SARA ministry and to write this memoir: From Habakkuk to SARA.
Through his good works, not only one child but thousands have benefitted from the outpouring of medical equipment, supplies, and advanced medical techniques continuing to flow back to the region from which he escaped as a Hungarian refugee four decades earlier.
Intertwined with the story of SARA, Reverend Szilagyi’s life unfolds as he escapes from oppression in his homeland, becomes a pastor in America by a curious route, and serves congregations throughout the Midwest for over forty years.
He speaks of personal triumphs such as preaching at the White House in 1970 and accepting a medal from the President of Ukraine in 2008 for his humanitarian efforts. He also recounts heartaches and disappointments and, yes, miracles along the way. His memoir reflects not only an amazing life adventure but the loving presence of Christ in his ministry.
