The MIP Program Continues in Sofia
  2007-11-15

From Novermber 9  to 11, 2007 I had the opportunity to go to Sofia for several important ministerial activities. First of all, I was about to teach for a whole day a group of ministers from the Sofia region as part of the MIP program, and second, I was invited to serve with the Word of God in one of the local churches. I decided to take with me my oldest son Daniel, who is 13 years old now and was a big help for me – making pictures and doing other chores.

On Saturday (November 10) all of a sudden it starting snowing and soon the ground was covered with snow. This made me start worrying that the snow would prevent some of the ministers from coming to the lectures. But to my surprise 20 ministers showed up ready for classes. Praise God! We started with a word of prayer and with a testimony from one brother, who shared that while him and other ministers were riding to lectures, his car started spinning around because of the snow. Thank God there were no additional accidents on the road and no casualties. God protected his people once again.

So we started studying about the Old Testament, and first we payed attention to its meaning and purpose. The ministers listened attentively and took notes. It was a great joy for me to see there also our minister to Turkey – brother Hristo Cholakov. He is an incredible man of God, who works hard and diligent for God’s Kingdom. We had a time of fellowship and he shared with me that he is eager to complete the MIP sucessfully, and I believe that the knowledge that brother Hristo will aquire will help him a lot in his ministry.

 

On the next day (Sunday, November 11) I was invited to minister in the local congregation led by Pastor Georgi Naydenov, who is one of the students in the MIP program. We had a good service and we felt the move of the Holy Spirit among us. After the service I spent some time in fellowship with the pastor and the other leaders in the church.

Later the same day my son and I arrived safe and sound in Stara Zagora, despite the snow and the worsened conditions on the road. Daniel was so excited – he could not stop sharing with his mother and brother about his trip to Sofia. He was a good helper and I think I will be taking him with me on more ministry trips in the future.

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.
