A Trip to Prague and Germany
Care For All International  2009-02-17

At the end of January my husband and I had the chance to undertake a two week European trip with several purposes in mind. Of course, this was at all possible thanks to the extended help by the kids grandmothers who came to Sofia to supervise Victor and Benjamin.

 

Dinko and I, together with Tania Petrova headed first to Prague, where we were welcomed at the International Baptist Theological Seminary for an intensive week of meetings, attended by current PhD students as well as prospective one (such as Dinko:). Each student gave a report of his/her progress and a pannel of professors and examiners asked questions, gave constructive comments and suggestions. Of course, there is no point of even mentioning how stressful it was to have to speak in front of 50 people, but praise God Tania and I were able to share about our most current research work and the feedback was very positive and productive.

 

Then, Dinko and I picked up our friend and colleague Raina Koleva from the Prague airport and together we traveled to Urbach, Germany, to have a few days of meetings with our Field Director Dieter Knospe. The main topic was the current status of the Theological College and the implementation of the new programs. We are very thankful to brother Knospe and his wife, as well as the Rosson family for being such good hosts and extending to us such hospitality.

 

Well, the trip was not over then. We had to return to Prague for a very interesting conference or more like a dialogue between evangelical ministers and Orthodox professors from the Sofia University. Several of us (PhD students) gave presentations based on the area of research that we have undertaken. The Bulgarian guests also had their presentation on the main topic of Christian witness in Orthodox Context. It was a very positive way to create an atmosphere of dialogue for which we are thankful to the Dean Dr Parushev.

 

So, we combined an educational trip with a more administrative one and both turned out very good. But at the end we were ready to head back home and get on with our work.

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.
