The face of the bride of Christ
Church Care  2013-02-27

Let me share with you about the life of a special church, which manages well in dealing with the current life of challenges /something quite normal in Bulgaria/. The Emmanuel Church of God, Mugliz was kicked out from the rented public facility several months ago and now continue functioning residentially ;). Some may argue that having church in a home is uncomfortable, and others may think it is inadequate, but those loving Jesus have no such scruples. People gather together to worship God together wherever it may be.

Brother Hristo – the pastor of the church welcomes his flock at his house three times a week and earnestly continues to navigate them in the Kingdom path although he suffers a horrendous form of asthma. I just participated one of their services and witnessed how the people came with large smiles on their faces and filled the home sitting anywhere they could. They worshiped and prayed wholeheartedly like they were in a large church building. WoW!!!

After the meeting I spent some time to fellowship with the people and no one complained about the poverty – on the contrary – they all shared testimonies of God’s grace and how He miraculously supplies their daily needs of food, heath and health and how on top of it all – they take care of their widows and orphans. Man – this church is bursting with life and life abundant - in the midst of the surrounding misery and mud – Glory to God. And right here watching this poor-looking church family I saw the face of the Bride of Christ. May be one day God is going to allow me to lay the first brick to a church building. Why not – I only need couple of more people standing in prayer with me. Amen

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.
