Children's Holiday
Create-A-Smile  2007-06-08

Dear Friends,
With great joy I have the opportunity to tell you about an event, which brought an abundance of pleasant feelings to the hearts of around 60 children. At 9:30 AM on June 2nd we held the first-of-its-kind, half-day sport outing organized by Create-a-Smile. Children from three social institutions gathered together on this day: Bulgarka, Maria Terezia and Petrovo village. The children ranged in age from 9 to 16 years of age, but they all had one thing in common! The thing that brought them together was the desire to simply be kids and to enjoy games, which we had organized for them. It was a special joy for me to watch the older 15 and 16-year-olds as they jumped from one game to another, how they ran around the stadium, how they lined up to take turns to get face paintings, how they drew drawings with colorful chalk. In the end there were prizes for the winners of the soccer and "dodge ball" competitions. But, we didn't forget to give a certificate of participation to each of the shelters for their efforts and diligence. When the time came to depart none of the children wanted to leave. All of this melted my heart and assured me once again that all that we do has meaning. All of us at Create-a-Smile and Care for All gave all in order to turn this event into an unforgettable celebration for these dear children. And for all the rest of those from the three shelters, who were not able to be with us at the outing, we provided lunch which was part of the celebration and served on location. At the end of the day we were more encouraged, and even more certain, that there is no cost too high for the smile of even just one child.

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.
