An Unforgettable Christiаn Concert
Care For All International  2008-02-29

A few days ago I took my family to a Christian concert here in the Quad Cities, Iowa - something that I have been craving to do for several years now but somehow never managed to find the right reason or time to do it. But when I found out that two of my favorite artists - Jeremy Camp & Toby Mac were going to be in town, I realized that the time had come :_)

So on Saturday evening (February 23, 2008) the four of us entered the big auditorium that was filling up with young and no so young "Jesus-freaks". My children are in an age where it takes a lots of explaining of who is who in the Christian music market… So I decided to simply introduce to them the singers as I started to sing (in the car on the way to the concert) some of the most famous tracks of Toby and Jeremy. Pretty soon, of course, every introduction on my end was absolutely useless, when the lights were dimed and the concert itself began - my heart started pounding in a way it has not in a while.

We all were nicely surprised to find out that Mathew West was there to warm up the crowd – by giving a powerful testimony and presenting some of his newest hit songs. Regardless of your musical preferences, I am sure that you will fall in love with Mathew's rhyme & lyrics – they are full of life and stories. His music makes you smile and sing along or simply "la-la-la" trying to catch up to his fast pace singing style. It is worth mentioning here that he performed all by himself on stage only with his guitar, but this in no way disturbed his brilliant and charismatic performance.

Then the curtains fell and the auditorium was filled with flashes, lights, smoke and several bundles of wires - not to mention the distinctive crystal clear voice of Jeremy Camp. With his rock style worship songs he took everyone in seconds to their feet…  and there I was up and jumping, not that my wife & kids have not seen me perform strange jumping and a wiggling resembling dance before! Of course, their mesmerizing with me soon disappeared when there on the stage appeared my most favorite Christian Artist Toby Mac. Then, the whole crowd was jumping and dancing and singing along to the point in which I was not anymore a point of interest to my sons :_)

I sang and danced till I had no breath left in me, and towards the end I realized that 3 hours have passed unnoticeably – 3 hours during which I left all troubles & worries behind and totally enjoyed praising and worshipping God. On the way back home I continued to praise and worship, while the rest of my passengers in the car were tired enough to humbly bear with me...

If you have never tried the power of worship, I am telling you - you have missed on one of the most incredible experiences a human being can have... just jump in & try it yourself!

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.
