Church Building for Mokren CoG

Church Care



The village of Mokren is located in the Sliven County, which is part of theStara Zagora Region of the Bulgarian Church of God. The village is founded in a mountainous area with a population of 872 people.


The pastor of the local congregation in MokrenMilcho Yankov, is from the Roma minority and has been raised in a very poor family. During his early childhood he was left without a father and that complicated his life even more. He started living his life out on the streets, and joined a very bad company of friends, who led him into a lot of trouble. He has been called in the police many times for different criminal activities, and spent 2 years in prison.


However, he was blessed by a kind and considerate wife, who tried to help him overcome his destructive life pattern. They started a family, but his wife lost his first two children through spontaneous abortions. This prompted both of them to cry out to God and seek Him in their lives.


On March 11, 2001 Milcho joined a small home church, where he found his new family. The people there showed him God's love and he decided once and for all to turn away from his bad habits. And then a miracle happened in his life. God gave him a beautiful daughter, even though the doctors did not give the couple any hope.  Then Milcho dedicated to become a minister and started preaching the Word of God with zeal. A year later the church grew from 20 to 40 members.


This small home church was later registered as Grace BCoG and the believers started meeting for their weekly worship services in a small garage. Four years after his conversion, Milcho Yankov was ordained as the pastor of this church. Currently the membership of the church is about 60 people, fired up for God and with a zeal for ministry. In their desire to grow as a church they have bought a 300 square meters of land, where they want to build their church building with a church hall and rooms for the Sunday school.




In order to build their sanctuary, the believers in Mokren need the following amounts:


For foundation – $ 3, 200

For the rough structure - $ 4, 400

For the roof - $ 5, 400

For painting and furnishing - $ 6, 600


TOTAL: $ 19, 600


Petko Petkov


We have a kid tfrom an orphanage that needs a complicated medical treatment. His name is Petko Petkov and he is 11. We need to urgently undertake series of operations and manipulations to improve his mouth, feeding and speech. In order to accomplish this we will have to go through orthodontic operations to uninstall his upper side teeth and to fix the whole frontal denture in the right position. Also the mouth will have to be enclosed correctly by lining up the upper and the lower jaw. Finally we will have to provide Petko with series of speech therapies.

If you are lead to become a part of this great opportunity of showing God's love to one of those underprivileged and little ones... let us know.

On March 3rd, Petko was taken to the Dental Hospital in Plovdiv for his first examination before his first operation. It has began. thank you all dear friends - for joining hands to bless this kid with a better development. (Jesus said: "If you do it unto one of the least..."

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.
