Updates from Bulgaria - Jul 24, 2013

As the wheat has been harvested in Bulgaria, so the Lord is reaping a harvest among the poor and needy Turks of this land.  Last weekend we had our first summer baptism and saw thirty young men and women publicly profess their faith in Christ.  Over two hundred believers gathered, and after the baptism we had church services all night, and again on Sunday morning.  Lord willing, we will have at least two more meetings in August as we try to gather in every village for baptisms and overnight meetings.
One lady got a good report from the oncologist last week, that she no longer needs surgery.  This was after she came to the meeting and gave her heart to the Lord.  Now she is a walking testimony in her Turkish neighborhood to the power of prayer.

We appreciate your prayers for the pastors here who have suffered a heart attack (Pastor Nasuf) and a stroke (Pastor Ismail).  Pray the Lord of the harvest that he would send forth labourers into his harvest; pray especially that these experienced labourers would be able to return to the work again full time.
