Celebration for the children of Yazdach
Church Planting  2007-07-31

Dear friends and co-workers in Christ,

Probably you will agree with me that there is nothing better than joy in the Lord, especially when our families are along with us. This motivated us to organize a special event for the children of Yazdach - a celebration with many games. On Friday afternoon, when we usually have our regular church service, many children and their parents were already waiting for us with huge smiles on their faces. Our friends and colleagues Slavi, Maya, Irina and my family quickly unloaded the van and started with the games. Slavi, transformed into a clown, was blowing up balloons and shaping them into animals. The kids were thrilled and couldn't wait for their turn to get one. Maya was painting their faces with an animal of their choice. The parents were watching from the side, smiling happily. The time for activity games also came and Slavi, the clown, made all the kids scream joyfully with each game they participated in: race, drawing with chalk, computer games. After all of the excitement, we sat down to watch the "Cars" movie, which was the final thing we did during this day. By that time it was sunset and we – tired but happy – started packing everything into the van to head back to Stara Zagora.

This day left many unforgettable memories in the hearts of all of us. We are thankful to God for this opportunity to be the instruments of His love and care, through which we can serve these families in Yazdach, who are extremely hard-working and don't have enough time for the most precious gift of God - their children. That's why we will continue helping them by organizing events like this one, which bring so much joy to the hearts of the children.

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.
