My friend Dustin Brown wrote the following article, and I wanted to share with you the need in Bulgaria. Please pray for this country and get in touch if you are interested in getting more involved in missions.
Bulgaria is often an unassuming country. With a population of only seven million, many times it can become lost in the shuffle of the outreaches of Europe. Connected to Turkey at its border, the nation rests in Europe and neighbors Asia.
Bulgaria has a rich Balkan history, but sadly it is poor by way of the gospel! The majority of the nation follows the Eastern Orthodox religion. Sadly, they believe that religion and works will lead their path to Heaven.
As a missionary to Turkey, I find this nation interesting because the Turkish nomads fill the fields of Bulgaria. They need the gospel! A young and surrendered man could easily be trained, raise his support, and be on his way to reach this people group. Bulgaria needs a willing missionary!
Please pray that the Lord would send someone to this needy field. Maybe that someone is you. Who will make a difference in the lives of the seven million of Bulgaria?
