Time of sharing and fellowship
Wholesome Life  2011-05-12
Loneliness is part of the human life, but it is up to us whether we will let it ruin out life or whether we will try to do something to alleviate this type of condition. The loneliness come in the life of a person no matter of age, social standing or ethnicity. The poor and the wealthy alike suffer from this condition which might become chronic. Everyone has experienced periods of feeling all alone in the world.

These thoughts urged me to initiate a discussion with the elderly people who are beneficiaries from the Wholesome Life Ministry. I introduced the topic of loneliness and what are the reasons leading to this condition. I made a differentiation between being alone and feeling lonely. I shared that every person experiences two basic types of loneliness – spiritual one, when we are away from God, and social one – when we have no friends to spend time with. For this basic human need of being with others there is no substitute. Many are the reasons for the condition of being all alone and depressed about it – death of a loved one, divorce, change of place of living, loss of a job, sickness, retirement, etc.

The elderly people realized that in order for them to overcome this feeling of loneliness, they have to stop blaming God or others or themselves.. as well as their surroundings and the conditions in which they live. I encouraged them to find people with whom to share about their life difficulties and joy but above all to learn to trust God and to share with Him everything. I hope that what I was able to share will be beneficial for these people who more than anybody else in our society experience loneliness every day.

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.
