Water Baptism at the Black Sea
Church Care  2008-09-07
In our desire and motivation to help out the churches in the Stara Zagora region, we responded to a request from the pastor of the church in Straldzha – Milcho Dobrev. He said that about 20 people from his congregation want to be baptized in water and that they have a tradition in their church to have this ceremony at the Black Sea. But this year they did not have the finances and the transportation to do it, even though there were so many who wanted to be baptized.

So Pavel Panchev and I got our organization's ministry vans and headed towards Straldzha on Saturday - August 30, 2008. The people were waiting for us – excited by what the day would bring. They were ready to have a special day out at the sea side. Thank God we were able to fit them all in the vans and in about 2 hours we arrived at a small almost empty beach. There the pastor with our assistance performed the water baptism and we all rejoiced with those who participated.

Then, as is traditional for the church we all retrieved to the beach and had a nice time of fellowship and refreshments. We worshiped the Lord and prayed together. Pastor Milcho was very happy that we responded to his call and this special day was so well organized. It was such a good, joyful and special day that naturally at the end no one wanted to go home, but we had to go back and leave the people in Straldzha, and then go home to a well deserved rest. I am thankful for those opportunities where we could be of service and at the same time have the chance to minister to people and at the end get back home blessed and spiritually refreshed!

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.
