Have you ever been kicked out of your house at age 14 and you were expected to make your own living separate from your family, because the culture surrounding you cannot help or support you?
Then I need to tell you about my friend, Pastor Lubcho. He grew up under difficult situations, but by God’s grace, he is now on a mission to help others, his people, the Gypsy (Roma) people. Pastor Lubcho’s heart is to impact the broken and hurting in his community and surrounding communities in our area in order that their lives will be transformed by Jesus.
Normally when you see me, Chance, traveling in Bulgaria or Macedonia, I am in the company of Pastor Lubcho. You will see us laughing about the adventures we get ourselves into like:
*taking me to a large Muslim community during Ramadan, or
*us sliding on black ice into a ditch after a weekend in a village high in the mountains, or
*him wondering how in the world I can eat fried pork skins.
One thing I know, the work in Bulgaria is about relationships…Our relationship with Jesus and our relationship with each other. Lives being transformed, including mine. It’s an honor to call Pastor Lubcho a friend.
*A national meeting will be hosted here in Bulgaria in 1 week. There is much planning to be done, and people travelling from all over the world to get here.
Thank you for your support, no matter how big or small, be it in prayer, friendship or finances. We truly understand that in each case your support is part of your worship sacrifice before God and we honor and appreciate you.
Together we are building His Kingdom!
Chance, Dee Dee, Mitch, Catherine, Jessie, and Alan
