Sickness and Hope are Part of Life
Wholesome Life  2008-09-01
Many of the elderly people who come to receive a warm meal and care at the Wholesome Life Center have serious health conditions, for which they take a dozen different medications each day – which eats away at least half of their pensions. Some of these people get weaker by the day and there are days when they can’t get out of bed and come to receive their free meal. Of course, we try to find out who is missing and why and to bring them food in their homes – this and prayer is all that we could do…

One of our elderly friends – Kica, about whom I shared with you a while ago, did not come for a few days at the Wholesome Life Center, and this got us worried. So we called her neighbor Liliana and she told us that Kica has had hemorrhage and was taken to the hospital. Of course, we started praying for her right away, and as soon as we heard that she is back home we decided to go and visit her. We brought her the meal of the day and a bag of groceries to help her out in this difficult time for her.

Kica welcomed us in her little almost ruined down apartment. She was weak, but still managed to get up and offer us some chocolates – since she had just turned 80 the day before. Kica is very thankful to God for giving her a new chance to live some more, since the doctors were not very optimistic about it. Her friend Liliana is by her side, even though she herself has a very sick daughter-in-law at home. We prayed for both ladies and thanked Liliana for all her care and efforts to help Kica. Her humble answer was: “Isn’t this why we are human…” Yes, God has given us hearts to feel the pain of others and to be there for them to give them hope!

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.
