An incredible experience at the orphanage in Sladak Kladenets
Create-A-Smile  2007-05-24

The date was May10th. The weather was warm and sunny. The staff of Create-a-Smile Ministry travelled together with four children from Maria Teresa orphanage to the orphanage in Sladak Kladenets. These children grew up in the orphanage in Sladak Kladenets and an event like this will be like a meeting with their own past. I don’t know how to express the excitement on their faces, but I would say that my excitement during the ride was even greater! This is because my dear friend, Pavel, was driving and this was his first turn behind the wheel after he received his drivers’ license (that’s why my excitement was doubled).

Here we are in front of the orphanage. They met us as if we were some very famous celebrities. Nobody, except the Director, knew that we were coming. The whole staff came to welcome us, and as you probably suppose – our eyes were full of tears! The four children went to the rooms where they spent years of their life playing and sleeping. We’ve come to this place for many years, but it has never been so spirited and lively (this was the Director’s impression, too). The four children also had the opportunity to see some of their old friends and share many things, which have happened over the last few years. Even though six years have gone by, these children were still close to each other. Yes, they grow, but the early memories from their childhood will never be forgotten.

It’s time to go, but before that the four children received a bag full of goodies, made by the staff of the orphanage. We saved this precious moment in a picture we took in front of the building. The driver sat in his place and the excitement continued as we travelled back to Stara Zagora. The whole time these children didn’t stop thanking us because, for them, this was a dream come true.

Yes, we try to make many children’s dreams come true, with God’s help, but, dear friends, together we can do much more! Please pray for us and support us! May God bless you!

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.
