Back to Ministry!

After prayer and much consideration my wife and I decided to get more involved with ministry. God has directed us on work with kids and teenagers. We discussed our vision with Dinko Zlatarov and he helped us specify the location. So two weeks ago we started serving the Lord in the Roma (gipsy) part of Sliven. We decided to go there every Thursday morning and concentrate on the children and teenagers.

Our vision is to bless the young people, motivate them for education, godliness and friendship. My wife Kamelya (Kami) despite all other things is a professional hair dresser. So naturally she offered to make free haircuts to these poor people. I started teaching the young people English classes. Usually after first week in such classes we have decrease, but not here! The second week the number of attendants doubled. So next week I am planning to have two classes – one for kids and another for the teenagers.

Last but not least is the children's Bible education. Through games and little Christian lesson each time I want us to influence the children. They are in such an age when we can impact their whole life. I believe that non believing children will also come and be part of these activities.

Please pray for us! We need wisdom and new approaches. Please pray also for the children and teenagers , most of them live in extreme poverty. We want them to come closer to God and walk His path. At the same time we want them to use their full potential and grow up with confidence in the society which neglects the Roma people. I believe that through faith in God, education and good social skills they will change not only their future but also of their parents and the whole country!

God bless you all!

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.
