Blagoevgrad Church

Sunday, February 17th, 2008

My first trip to Bulgaria was in 1993. My parents were missionaries here; my sister and I came to visit during our Christmas holiday from college. Without retelling the last fourteen years of my life, the short version is that I liked Bulgaria, especially the beautiful girl who’d eventually become my wife.

Roughly ten years ago, my parents left Bulgaria. The people they were staying with took over the ministry, with the church meeting in the very flat that my family used to call home. I knew it would be special, getting to meet these people again after such an absence. I wasn’t disappointed. They’re very sweet people, with gentle dispositions. Good people, whom I’ll enjoy worshiping with while I’m in country.

This is a picture of my family and I, worshiping with the Christians in Blagoevgrad.
