Extending a Helping Hand for a Person in Need

None us, humans, could predict what tomorrow will bring – a smile or a tear, happiness or sadness, good health or pain and sickness… I started thinking about this fact, when a few days ago one of our students shared a prayer request with the staff and students at the Theological College. A friend of his called him and said that he had fallen from the roof of a house and has broken his hip bone and needs to be hospitalized. Not only was he in great pain, but he was also in desperation, because the doctors had told him that in order for them to fix his problem, they needed to insert a platinum devise in his body that would cost about $ 1, 000. Now, this is an amount that almost 90 % of the Bulgarians cannot afford. This young man was told that if he cannot provide the money, his operation would be postponed indefinitely, and he would just lay in the hospital waiting, in pain…

Yes, this was the prayer request that Gospodin Kolev shared with all of us during our chapel service and asked for our prayers. But he went the extra mile for his friend - he also urged us to see if we could help financially towards this need. None of us knew the person in question, but we did not need to know him to feel his pain and the terrible situation he was in… So students, staff & teachers together decided to give of the little we ourselves had…To our great surprise, at the end the gathered amount of money was almost $ 300! Halleluiah! Sometimes we think we ourselves don't have much money, and that's true, but when God opens our hearts we could be a real blessing to someone else!!!

Right away our students Gospodin Kolev and Stefko Zlatarov rushed to the hospital to give to the man in need the money we all had gathered. He was in tears and could not believe that people who don't even know him have done something so unbelievable for him! Of course, he also received a prayerful support! Next week the doctors will perform the operation – Praise God! Please, pray for Toshko and for his fast recovery!

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.
