The church here in our own village is doing very well. Recently there have been some people come for the first time, but even better, we've heard of several other family members and relatives that have been saved. Most of them are in Western Europe working, but the Lord has affected the believers here so strongly that He's all they can talk about. Just this week there was a woman who had her daughter and son-in-law and grandchildren return to Bulgaria for a visit for the first time in a year. They arrived one hour before the meeting. So, this woman visited with them for one hour, then left them and came to church. When a person puts the Lord and the church ahead of everything else, the excitement and dedication is contagious.
This week we were able to finish the flour distribution for the churches in our area. As Paul was being sent out to the mission work, he was told to remember the poor. So, we, endeavor to remember the poor and help feed them once a year. Each church family received one hundred pounds of flour and over a gallon of cooking oil. For some of them it came just in time, as their winter store of supplies had just run out. I'm including a picture of a little girl. She has nine brothers and sisters in her house, and ten other cousins living next door. Many days they go to bed hungry, but praise the Lord, that won't happen now for the next month or more. Thank you all so much for your prayers and financial support. There are some children going to bed full tonight.
