The sacrament of foot washing
  2007-09-14

Not many churches practice foot washing as a part of the Lord's Supper. If we look at it only as a historical fact, we can disregard it, thinking that it was only a part of the specific ancient tradition according to which the people washed their feet from the dust before entering their homes. But reading the Gospels we understand that, through this act, Jesus Christ did something more than hospitality - He modeled a servant attitude for His disciples which was an example for them to follow. Today we have the opportunity to personally experience Jesus' example. Even though a long time has passed since these events, we can experience it with the same power today. The sacrament from those days is a sacrament today, too, only if we understand the spiritual meaning of the physical act, performed by our Lord more than two thousand years ago.

Here we are - the whole staff of Care for All - ready to start the new school year. During the last few years this event was always tied in with a rededication to God and also to our friends and colleagues. We believe that this act of foot washing expresses the attitude of our hearts to each other and in relation to God's calling in our life.

We started with prayer in which we asked God to forgive our sins and to help us to continue walking on our path with the Lord. We realize that all of us are parts of one body, which had is Christ and we have to function together in unity. We believe that God is with us and He will continue blessing us in this new school year.

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.
