Go and make disciples…
Church Care  2011-09-05

I still remember vividly the time in the beginning of the 1990 when we were free from the yoke of communism and started convening evangelistic outreaches on the streets – hundreds of people gathered – some out of pure curiosity, others just to enjoy the music and the message and many others who were searching for meaning in life and who gave their lives to Jesus. Unfortunately, now we live in a different time and it is not so easy to convene open air evangelistic outreaches. This is due to many reasons one of which is the bad publicity by the media towards the Evangelicals.

However, we have no intention to give up to fulfill the Great Commission of Christ to go into the world and make disciples… Just last week we were invited by Bethel CoG in Kermen to lead an evangelistic outreach in the center of town in front of the Municipal building. They had asked for permission the local authorities and were ready to preach to all that would come. A group of ministers from Sofia (Pastor Krasimir from Obelya, Pastor Asen Metodiev from Sofia and the Assistant National Bishop Pastor Dinko Zlatarov) together with the CFA ministry team from Stara Zagora traveled to lead the street evangelism.


Before we started, we distributed many brochures to the people on the streets of Kermen as well as to those in the stores. We explained that we believe in Christ and that He is the real hope for us and for this decaying world. The people from the local church had prepared banners for the children and the mood was already very festive and upbeat.

We started with worship led by the group which came from El Hanaan CoG in Sliven. The guest pastors greeted the crowd and after that Pastor Dinko Zlatarov preached with enthusiasm and anointing the message of salvation through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ for the sinful humanity. After the sermon there was an altar call and several people raised their hands thus stating that they would like to accept Christ in their lives and to become His followers. We prayed for them and then we prayed for the sick to be healed and delivered through God's power.

Fellow ministers, God has called us to spread the Good News no matter what. He has commissioned us to go into all the world, but it all starts from the towns and villages in our country. I believe that today is as good a time as any to go out and preach on the streets. The difficulties and the changes of the spiritual climate should not scare us. If we follow God's commands, God will make a way for us to reach people for His Kingdom.

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.
