Conference in Sliven about Unity, Restoration and Building Relationships
Church Care  2012-10-29

As a pastor from the Church of God denomination in Bulgaria I had wanted for a long time to organize a conference where we could share and learn more about the unity in the Body of Christ, the restoration and building of relationships Finally, my dream became a reality thanks to the participation of our special friends Tony and Julia. The conference was convened in the town of Sliven.

The guest speakers were lectors from Canada – Kirsten and Crystal, as well as Julia. We had a wonderful time of fellowship with the pastors from Sliven, as well as leaders from the local churches in Yambol, Tvurditsa, Samuilovo and other smaller towns. The praise and worship team of El Hanaan CoG did a great job. They were all dressed with the new gowns that were given as a special present to them by our sister church in the USA – Praise Cathedral CoG. Thank you brothers and sisters for your generous donation!

The topic of the conference was very interesting and it challenged all of us to do our best to live in harmony, to restore broken relationships and to find ways to build strong relationships with each other so that we could minster to the people more effectively. We shared our experience as pastors in difficult situations and how God has helped us be successful in making our churches stronger. I am happy and satisfied with the results from the conference and I would like to thank all brothers and sisters who participated. I hope that we will put into practice what we learned and will be wiser and more mature in our walk in the Lord and in our relations with each other.

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.
