Merry Christmas! Happy New Year!
Church Care  2007-12-30

Maranatha Church proclaimed these greetings, when they gathered to mark the coming of this holy Christian day. I have long had the desire to bring them to the building of the Bible College to see where I work. I used this wonderful reason so our Christmas celebration could be in a more special atmosphere. My colleagues helped me to decorate the dining hall (where the seniors from the Wholesome Life project receive their lunch) so that the evening when the people from Maranatha arrived they found a truly festive atmosphere. A generous banquet table was set. We alternated songs to our Lord with lots of laughter, but extra holiday mood was brought by the gifts for each of the church members as well as all of the small ones (their children and grandchildren)…the most important thing, however, for the brothers and sisters of Maranatha, was the respect which was shown to them by my colleagues. I don't mean Slavi, who they now consider one of their own. He was there with his wife, Maya, also (a student of ours, in case you've forgotten). Irina, also was with us and actively involved in waiting on us and telling lots of stories. Pavel came and shot with both a camcorder and camera. We also were honored by the presence of Stilian (our regional overseer), who lent a great mood with his jokes…

As a Christian Ministry venturing in Missions we have become comfortable partnering and ministering with groups and families from so many countries… Well so many and yet never before we had the honor to serve the Lord with a family from Norway. So for the first time we were to host Norwegians and we had no idea what to expect and let me tell you right away that Tormod and Anita Olsen - an army of just two literally filled our van, our towns and villages, our world. Since we have never met them before – we were praying that God was sending us at least some normal people to work with but it was such a surprise to discover that they were far from normal – they were as crazy as we are and folks so in love with Jesus and his flock. WOW! A week started and ended like it was just 7 hours – we felt in love with the Olsens seeing how they jumped straight into the deep waters of the Bulgarian ministry context without hesitation and restrains – they began loving on people, ministering with their unique talents and uplifting the hurting people with a contagious spirit of enthusiasm and Jesus love. WOW!! Sofia, Geman, Petrich, Panaguyrishte, Levski, Teteven – day after day the people of Bulgaria from the various churches found their Spiritual Vitamins, encouragement, specific word of God through prophecy, healings, freedom and salvation through the self-sacrificial, giving and warm ministry of these folks. We can not wait for them to come back in June… I personally am in anticipation to see what Daddy has for us in the future – and I am sure it is special. Thank you God – for bringing those two WOW!!! People in our world. Dinko Zlatarov Mission trip to Sofia, Bulgaria 2014 In February we went to Sofia, Bulgaria with a great expectation, to begin a work with the Care For All Ministries. It has become to be a strong experience in many ways. When we met Dinko Zlatarov we felt welcomed and loved at ones. Care For All, is a good and well-planned ministry with a high focus on humanitarian and evangelistic work, This ministry operates a great deal of time among the Gypsies - the poorest of the poor in Bulgaria. It was amazing to see how Dinko and his team worked among them. Also - it was impressive to see the new established churches that are continually growing, the outreach like giving food and pray for the sick and making children`s street parties give fantastic results. The education work among the children, giving them skills in English and how to use computers will help them increase their carrier development and avoid the mistakes of their surroundings. We can read in Matthew, 25:40 “Truly I tell you, in so far as you did it for one of the least of these My Brethren, you did it for me.” Care For All is living this, and what we saw was the love of the Father that came true this work. It was a great pleasure for us to see people saved and healed through this week’s work. The people we met, children and the grown-ups were dedicated and in love with Jesus. Through this work we can see the kingdom grow and we recommend Care For All to you to partner with in the Kingdom of God in Bulgaria.
