Touching People with the Love of God
Church Care  2010-12-19

We live in difficult times of financial crisis and high rate of unemployment. We live in a time when so many people are struggling, needing care, attention and assistance. We live in a time when the Good News of Jesus Christ must be preached actively and people should come to find hope that can be found only with God. We live in a time when we preach love, care, grace, mercy... Yes, we live according to our Christian world view, but the question is whether we live what we preach. Are we as strong and convincing in our deeds as we are in our sermons...

Just last week I visited the town of Chirpan and together with the local pastor Alexander Georgiev we were able to feed over 70 children and a dozen of elderly people.The wife of the pastor had prepared a huge quantity of soup and a chocolate cream for desert. Despite the cold weather, the children gathered and were so happy to fill their stomachs with the warm and tasty soup. I watched all that was happening and was filled with mixed feelings. On the one hand, I was happy to see the children and their joy, but on the other hand i was so sad thinking about the future of these children who live in total poverty and don't even have adequate cloths for the cold winter.

I certainly hope that we will continue to give our best efforts to help the disadvantaged with anything we have whether big or small. My personal wish for Christmas is to be a person who not only speaks about God's love but also is able to touch people's lives withe the love of God!

Thank you Praise Cathedral CoG for making this happening. Be blessed and pray for you.

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.
