I would like to update you on 2 important areas of our ministry in Bulgaria:
Pirin Macedonia Youth Conference.
I am very happy to see growth in our young leaders in Southwest Bulgaria. 5 years ago we met Raim and Boryana, they are a young family and are in a mixed marriage. Raim comes from a Turkish family and Boryana is of Romani origin. A few years ago they were dealing with only a few young people in their town Sandanski. But through meeting and ministering together they now have a vision for the whole of Pirin Macedonia. This is a large area in Southwest Bulgaria. In just a few weeks they gathered about 270 young people. The main idea is to mobilize the youth and in time to continue together to build up and equip new ministers in the region.
In the last few months, we have been able to implement several family ministries in several small towns and villages around Sliven. It is evident that the pandemic has shaken many families in terms of hope, faith and financial stability. The pandemic has hit the poorest regions and people in the world the hardest. Most of the Roma in Europe fall into this group. We often have a counseling ministry with both men and women.
Nevin my wife also manages to have many multiple meetings and conversations with single women and wives. They often need to be supported emotionally and spiritually because of the many struggles and suffering these women go through.
Please do remember these things in your prayers,
