Welcome to our Wholesome Life Center
Wholesome Life  2008-06-09

In the beginning of June we welcomed the new group of 25 elderly people sent to us by the social services, who will be beneficiaries of the Wholesome Life Ministry for 6 months (Every year we serve 2 groups of people.). Every day these people will be receiving a warm meal for lunch, but we will also offer them our care and attention. We want to be there for them and to listen to their worries and problems and to help as we can. This is why as soon as we welcomed them we organized a gathering to introduce ourselves to them and to get to know them better.

I have never even imagined how much pain and suffering there could be in life, but the stories these people told us, made me believe that this is a fact. As one saying goes – "We all carry in us our own hell!" and this will be so until we leave these bodies and go to be with our Lord in heaven. We heard so many different life stories, so many experiences good or bad, so many struggles – I guess more stories were sad than happy… This reminds us, the younger generation that life is full of battles and we have to be prepared for this. Every day we see how the people around us, especially the old people, struggle to meet their existential needs of food, water, health…

All of this is something that keeps us alive, but it is not all that we need in this life to be complete persons. Only in our fellowship with other human beings, only following the Christian values and ethics, only in our desire to be better persons and better followers of Christ, we can become wholesome persons. Only when we could feel the pain of those around us, only when we are able to rejoice with their joy, only then we will reach the love that God showed towards humanity through sending His Son Jesus Christ to die on the Cross for us. This is the kind of love that we want to show these lonely and hopeless people, who are abandoned by their loved ones and by the society at large.

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.
