Be like the children!
Create-A-Smile  2013-04-03

When I was a child, I liked to play with my dolls. In the beginning I imagined I was their mother and later on I would create whole theatrical performances. When I got to my teenage years, my dolls became only an accessory to my room just reminding me of my childhood... The kids on our days don't play with dolls - they prefer the computer world where the games are much more dynamic and filled with adrenaline. Maybe this is the reason our kids grow faster... And I realize I am from a different generation and from a different time when girls liked to play with dolls and there were no computers...

Why am I sharing all this... Because I want to tell you about my last visit to the Nezabravka Home for abandoned children. I accompanied a group of American college students who were in Bulgaria and this was their first missionary trip. My joy was so great when I saw these young ministers to pull out of their bags Muppet dolls. They had prepared a whole show for the kids. It was amazing - a lot of fun: ) The students Muppets sang and danced and shared about God and the wonderful things He does. The children watched with eyes wide open. Later they were given the chance to play with the Muppets themselves. It was a great experience and it brought me back to my childhood years. These are the years when you dream of good things and you really believe that they will come though. I hope the children in this Home will have a better future and will find comfort and hope in the love of our heavenly Father.

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.
