The Mission Trip Goes On
Church Care  2008-10-21
Today is the third day of the mission trip of our wonderful group from Charlotte, NC. I say "wonderful", because we got to know these 5 enthusiastic people and we truly admire them for their diligence, hard work and dedication to ministry towards the needy and for preaching the Word of God with boldness.

This morning we had a very special devotion/ fellowship/ breakfast :) Our local team gathered with our American team, but we also had with us a ministerial couple from the US who have traveled the world and are in the ministry for more than 50 years – Lamar and Nelia McDaniel. They came to join us together with their interpreter Ivan Todorov and his wife Kamelia. It was a bit difficult for all of us to fit around the round table in the teachers' lounge, but we made it and the atmosphere was really warm and friendly. Brother Lamar encouraged us with a few words and led us in prayer. Then we had our breakfast and had a time for fellowship – Bulgarian style – where everybody speaking with everybody….

Then, the American team with our colleagues Stefko and Pavel went to visit the Nezabravka Home for Children and to minister there bringing gifts for the kids, whereas Dinko and I spent some quality time in the downtown of Stara Zagora with Lamar and Nelia. After lunch some started working on small repairs and painting in the school building, while other went to visit the church in the town of Tvurditca and to have a time of fellowship with Pastor Vesko. As you can see – we try to keep our mission group as busy as possible – but then again this was their desire from the start: )

The evening was dedicated once again to church service – we all got in two ministry vans and headed towards the nearby village of Kalitinovo to minister together with the local pastoral couple – Pano and Pepa. These people and their church have such passion for God's Kingdom and are such diligent workers. We blessed their ministry and together with them we had a very special time of fellowship, mutual encouragement and uplifting in the Spirit. It is always great to visit our friends – the believers in Kalitinovo.

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.
