We held a VBS Monday through Wednesday this week with right around 100 children. A team from our home church, Christ Community came with songs, crafts, and Bible lessons. The theme was "You are His treasure". They taught the lesson of the lost parables and told the kids how valuable they are to the Lord. They made treasure chests, sheep, and crowns. This time to end the VBS we took the kids up to the mountain to give them a chance for some fresh air and a chance to get out of the village.
We took a picnic lunch, played games, and laughed a lot! This week we will remember for the rest of our lives! Many thanks to the team for sacrificing so much to come and love on us and the people of Bulgaria!
Clothing fund for the children $10 per child x 50 children ($500)
Galloway camp scholarship fund- this will cost our family 600 euro ($817/US) to attend which is not in our budget
August camp scholarship fund- $35 sends a teen to the Love Bulgaria conference for a week and we are looking for those willing to sponsor a teen. We would like to send 10 from our area ($350)
If you would like to donate to these events, please use the links below, but please indicate to which fund you are giving. I know you partners can make this happen for the kids!
Many thanks to those that love and pray for us. We value your partnership and support. Being on the frontline of ministry requires a definite group of people willing to pray and uplift us, and we know we would/could not be here without you all. You are loved much!
*An absolutely amazing week with the Christ Community team that came this week. God has worked through His people to spread His love, joy, and comfort.
*35 people were baptized in the river today!
*Our home church, Christ Community, will be traveling back to the USA today. They will be very tired and I know of one that has to return to work Monday.
*Pray for the projects (agricultural, church plants, and orphanage/safe house) beginning here on the ground in Bulgaria.
*Pray for the financial budget to be met. We have received $6,000 since our last report, praise the Lord, but are still $2,000 below budget for the year.
