New Churches in Buzovgrad and Koprinka
Church Planting  2006-11-10

It has been three months since our church planting team took interest in founding churches in the villages of Buzovgrad and Koprinka. These are two villages, which are located very close to the city of Kazanluk. They are also some of the most populated villages in the region. In each village there live about 3, 000 people. Most of the people there are Bulgarian Mohammedans, who have embraced the Moslem faith as their own. New mosks are being built every year and Islam is coming strong in this region of the country. This makes the need for churches very urgent.

In Buzovgrad the ministry that we wanted to initiate started out with many difficulties. First, right after we started the church there, we found out that there is another Evangelical church there, but we were not discouraged – in a village that size two churches are by far not too much. I believe that this will only be beneficial for the people of this village who desperately need Christ.

In Koprinka the ministry started out great. With God's help we became friends with a family, which is dedicated to God and the ministry and have an open home for other believers. Soon others joined us in our services. Encouraged by the new believers we started traveling often to encourage them and to help them to grow in the faith. I believe that God has special plans for the people in Koprinka. And I know that He will use us for His Kingdom so that more people will come to meet Christ and give their lives to Him.

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.
