Visiting a Dear Friend in Karjali
Church Care  2008-02-26

There is nothing more wonderful than a meeting with a friend, whom you have not seen in a very long time. This is how a felt when I headed towards the town of Karjali with my co-worker and Assistant Regional Bishop Stefko Zlatarov.

Our visit with Pastor Hari Atanasov was initiated by him. He invited us to visit his church. This is a church that is located in the midst of blooming Islam. There are several musks in Karjali alone, as well as in every little village around the town. You can hear the imams shouting out towards Allah and inviting the believers for prayer all day long. In this difficult spiritual atmosphere brother Hari and his church serve the Lord with diligence and dedication. I am really impressed by the strong faith that Hari has and his vision for this region. His church has already sent missionaries in the surrounding villages and towns.

Brother Stefko and I were contemplating & sharing about our admiration for Pastor Hari on the way to Karjali, and when we got there and worshiped God together with him and the rest of the believers, we were really blessed that we took the time to go and spend time with them. Yes, our visit with Pastor Hari Atanasov was something that we enjoyed very much. We went back home even more motivated to follow God’s calling and be faithful!!!

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.
