The past 20 days have been quite a whirlwind! We were invited and sponsored by 2 churches and a Bible college to come to England to teach/preach for 9 days. They loved on us and gave us some much needed time outside of the mission field, but we did work very hard pouring out everyday making connections with old and new friends and promoting the work in Bulgaria.
We taught 5 classes at the Bible college on Missions to students. We thoroughly enjoyed getting to know them and giving them practical information on what mission's looks like.
We met with 2 small groups and spoke about the work in Bulgaria (one of the small groups will now send a group to work with women next month).
We spoke at a wonderful church on God's love (the pastor will be coming to Bulgaria in April to minister).
We met with our partner church (the church of our overseer) that is pioneering the large 2 year church plant project.
We also met with some of our good friends David and Lesley Illingsworth (picture on the top right). We had such a wonderful lunch at their house and they are very excited about coming to help with the work here in Bulgaria. God is building a team of people to love and invest of themselves into the hurting people here and we are amazed at what He is unfolding.
It is a connection God told us several years ago that He would build. We did not see in the natural how at the time, because we did not know many people in England. It is quite inexpensive (around $136) to fly round trip between the two countries and we knew minister's could come and pour into and minister here in Bulgaria for a small price. We know the need is so great here and we cannot do it alone. He is connecting and working, and we are just following His lead. We know the attacks that have come against us this year are because of the great things ahead! We have had (and still because it is an every day thing) to stand, believe, trust, and push forward for the HIGH calling that is in CHRIST JESUS. He is victorious, and only IN HIM can HIS work be done.
*Lawyers are working very hard and paperwork will be finished shortly for the land project, girl's home, and micro-enterprise projects.
*We thank God for all of you that have given to support us and the spreading of the gospel here in Bulgaria. May God, who is rich in mercy, bless your seed and supply abundantly for your every need, whatever it may be. We LOVE you so very much and thank God for you. We pray for you and appreciate you more than words and we hope you know that!
*We are resting in Him because He has done and will continue to do great and mighty things!
*Prayers are needed for the projects still in the beginning and middle stages as we form foundations here to operate them through- agricultural, church plant, and girl's home.
