Meeting of the Church Planting Ministry Team
Church Planting  2007-03-15

Dear friends, during the past week we decide to convene a meeting of our church planting team. All who volunteer to travel with me to the newly planted churches came to the meeting, where we shared news about all that is going on in our little village churches. We also discussed future plans and ideas for cooperative work.

The main problems that were shared were connected with the homelessness of Maranatha CoG, the Hepatitis A epidemic in Yazdach and the loss of enthusiasm on the part of the youth from Awakening CoG to minister in the small home churches in the villages of Venetc and Opan. One of the foremost difficulties that our team faces is the lack of sufficient finances for traveling to the churches. This is a serious problem, which has not been settled yet. We discussed various options to find finances for our ministry and all agreed that we should be active and should take the initiative to engage more people in what we do –some can participate with their prayers, others can support us with money, while still others might decide to travel with us.

Apart from the discussions connected with our difficulties and problems, we had some time for mutual support, encouragement and prayer. We are hopeful that even though we are lacking finances, we will continue with our plans and will do everything possible to continue on for the expanding of God's Kingdom in Bulgaria. Soon we will start working in two new villages – Enina and Bialo Pole – the teams are already formed – which is great. Let's hope that God will open doors for us in these villages to win people for Christ and to gather them in congregations. This is possible because God is with us. Amen! Author :   Jake Popejoy

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.
