Mission trip to Spain
Operation M  2012-05-03

What a month April was – full of so many wonderful experiences and ministry opportunities. I just can't help it but share with you how God used us for His Kingdom and opened doors for ministry for us. One just this one month I was privileged to participate in two ministry trips – one to Spain, and the other one to Turkey. But here and now I am going to share a few words about the Spain trip, and maybe in another article I will let you know about our ministry in Turkey; )

From April 2-12, for about ten days we spent in the beautiful country of Spain. My brother and I were invited to minister there in several churches and to participate in a mission's conference. The trip was organized by our missionary from Argentina Karina Petkoff. My brother's wife and my wife were also invited to join us – so we anticipated a great time… The only disappointment was that my wife was not able to come due to urgent work engagements at the same time. But our little group headed to Spain nevertheless.

There, we were warmly welcomed by the pastor of the Church of God in the town of Gerona. He had been in Bulgaria the previous year and wanted us to visit him and minister to his people. Brother Gustavo invited us to stay in his home and we felt so at home with his family. They really took care of us – they took us to a few trip in Gerona and then in Barcelona. We saw such wonderful sites. Soon our cameras were full of pictures… Then we were taken to preach in various churches.

After the first few days of fellowship, sightseeing and building new friendships, we emerged in the mission's conferences, where many speakers from different country shared their experience and the biblical directives for service to others – in our community and around the world. We also participated actively. When it was our turn to share, we included also a Bulgarian folk dance with folk clothes and invited the people to join in the celebration. It was amazing to see people from different nationalities together worshiping God in unity. That was so encouraging for us.

We were also able to minister in churches and home groups. We are so grateful that God gave us the opportunity to meet new people and create lasting relationships. Just a week after we got home, we hosted a group from Spain who came for a week to minister alongside our team. I firmly believe that we were led by God in this trip and that our connection with the believers from Girona will grow stronger in the next years so that we will mutually serve each other and bring lost souls to Christ.

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.
