News from The Bridge CoG - Sofia
Church Care  2010-07-29

Those of you who are pastors know very well how exciting it is to see a newly planted church grow and expand. It is a process that you want to be part of - the congregation starts small, but the believers are enthusiastic and could sense the road ahead and the growth of the church. Different initiatives are presented and everyone engages in them wholeheartedly. There are no rumors or gossip yet, no misunderstandings and quarrels among the people. The whole atmosphere is pure and the services are genuine and spirit filled.

Yes, we all like to be part of a newly planted church. I am thankful that God gave me the opportunity to be part of the founding of The Bridge CoG in Sofia, which was founded in the beginning of June 2010 with a group of about 20 people. From the start it was declared that the church would concentrate on bringing people from different ethnic and social groups together for a time of worship - we would not create boundaries between Roma, Turkish and Bulgarians; there will be boundaries between rich and poor, well educated and illiterate; there will be no hierarchy and boundaries between ministers/ pastors and lay believers - all will worship and serve God on an equal standing.


My praise report here is that the congregation, which gathers every Sunday evening, has been expanding and now we have over 35 members. Several church leaders from different churches also join us and participate with testimonies and preaching. It is a team effort and no one is stopped from expressing their faith in Christ before the whole body of believers. Just last week we were visited by 6 pastors, and they all shared a bit from he Word of God and a bit about their personal experience with the Lord. It was an amazing time of fellowship, which brought us closer to each other and gave us the opportunity to pray for various church needs and for the unity among the leaders in the Sofia region.


Our services are always open to the people who would like to attend. Everyone is welcomed. Very often we prepare dinner or just refreshments for the people and invite them after church. This is a great way for the believers to have time of fellowship in an informal way. We like it that we have such opportunities to celebrate different special events and birthdays. We are happy to see the growth of our newly planted which is an affiliate of the Bridge CoG in Stara Zagora. Please, keep us in your prayers as we go forward ministering God and our community!

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.
