Blessings Born Out of Relationships in Bulgaria

In Bulgaria, the new year brings an exchange of blessings between friends. Many people use a phrase that means "life and health," but sometimes these wishes become more intimate such as, "a blessed year full of new beginnings and adventures."

Blessings like these are born out of relationships, and real relationships are what many in Bulgaria long for. Recently, a Bulgarian friend of a missionary asked if she would pray with her. One of her family members is ill and since she doesn’t believe in any religion, she didn't know how to pray. The missionary was surprised but glad to have her over that evening to drink tea, talk, and pray for her family. They read Scripture together and visited for a long time. Both left encouraged and thankful for their friendship.

As the missionary was a blessing to her friend, you are a blessing to us. You play a vital role in helping transform lives for the gospel. May your new year be a year grounded in the hope of our Savior, Jesus Christ.

A Wedding, A Reunion, and a Reminder of Impact in Bulgaria

As I glanced around I treasured what I saw: a bunch of American missionaries, volunteers, and children who've served with us in Bulgaria.

She was rough around the edges, a bit older than most. They saw her on the street every time they went out. So they befriended her.

We don’t think of a country’s top export as being its daughters. Yet for Europe’s poorest and most exploited country, this is life.
