When we build upon the Rock
Church Care  2010-01-13

Saturday – January 09th – in Sofia, the capital of Bulgaria an amazing meeting took place. A meeting that many will remember аs a new beginning for the Kingdom work here in Bulgaria. With the beginning of the calendar year a meeting of the Church of God ministers (Western Region) was organized for the purpose of a carefully planned and organized life of the ministry work. Most of the ministers confessed that this was the first time they ever participated an administrative meeting of this kind – where the church leadership in a perfect love and sync worked in unity.

There were several fundamental points in the agenda in the hands of the leaders and regardless of the uncertainty and fear at the start – one after another people began to open up and take active participation in the process. The beginning of the meeting was marked by the passionate appeal of brother Velev – National Overseer – who preached from Mat. 8:51. Then the meeting continued into its decision making phase and due to decades of hurting past experiences – you could read the uncertainty on the faces of the church leaders.

The first task was to take a vote of a Bishop of the Western Region for the period 2010-2012 and people we all anonymously elected rev. Marin Radev – the pastor of the Revival Church of God in Zlatitsa. After this we felt how the Spirit of God unwrapped a wonderful refreshing spirit of freedom and trust and one by one the following votes were taken in building the regional administrative structure. The Region was divided into 5 Districts for easy spiritual and administrative care and the following District Overseers were elected as follows:

1.    Stanislav Todorov – The Poduene District
2.    Dimitar Ianev – The Liulin District
3.    Kamen Petrov – The Berkovitsa District
4.    Georgi Georgiev – The Zlatitsa District
5.    Atanas Georgiev – The Blagoevgrad District

Additionally a committee was elected to oversee the building projects and the various financial needs. Anthon Chinkov – the National Youth Director presented the ministers with a general plan for an organized national Youth program which will aim in combining the youth in ministering together. 

An important accent was made upon the importance on getting every minister to get the needed education and to pass the international licensing procedure in joining the international network of Church of God licensed ministers. The meeting ended with the creation a three month calendar with upcoming events. 

This is what the church is capable of – when all is build upon Jesus – as the foundation of our personal and ministerial relationships. No other foundation can ensure the unity and the seamless cooperation between the stewards of the His Kingdom. To the King be all the glory.

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.
