Stara Zagora Regional Ministers’ Christmas Party
Church Care  2008-12-19

This year once again we had the opportunity to organize a very special Christmas celebration for the ministers of the Stara Zagora region and as it is our tradition in this way to uphold the unity among those who work for God's Kingdom in our part of Bulgaria. The event was held at the newly built luxury hotel Marian Palace. We had at our disposal the wonderful conference room and had also booked the restaurant.

Thankfully we had the financial ability to provide a bus for the pastors from Sliven and the surrounding villages and towns. All pastors came with their wives and soon the conference room was fully packed. The praise team from El Hanaan CoG led us in worship before the Lord, and also presented several beautiful Christmas songs. The ministers were greeted by Pastor Sasho Vasilev, Dinko Zlatarov and Emil Petrov. Then our special guest form America Steve Wallace spoke for a little bit and thanked the ministers for their diligent work in their local churches (the week before the party he had had the chance to visit most of these ministers and to inquire about their urgent building needs). I concluded the official part of the celebration with a message from the Word of God – John 15:15 and addressed the issue that we need to become better Christians and better friends so that we can work together and be even more productive in our efforts to serve the people God has entrusted us with.

After the official part was over we all enjoyed a delicious meal at the restaurant and spent some more time of fellowship with each other. All this was possible due to the committed efforts of Pastor Dan Tomberlin from Georgia and his fellow ministers who scooped up the money to provide this special day of celebration for the pastors of the Stara Zagora region. Thank you, brothers, for your generosity!!!

Dear fellow ministers, I would like to once again wish you a wonderful and unforgettable Christmas season!

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.
