Traveling with the McDaniel’s through the Balkans
Operation M  2008-11-01

Dear friends, during the week of October 19-23 my wife Kamelia and I had the privilege to travel with Brother Lamar McDaniel and his wife Nelia. They came to Bulgaria to minister in different churches and to share from their life long experience in the ministry.

Brother Lamar McDaniel is currently a pastor of a large Church of God in Maryland. During his sixty years of ministry he has been involved in many arias for expanding the Kingdom of God in and out of USA. He has traveled in over a hundred countries and has preached the Gospel to multitudes. He was involved in the establishing of the Theological Seminary in Germany and many other ministry projects all over the world. Sister Nelia McDaniel is a well known worship leader and minister in the Church of God. It was an honor to have them in Bulgaria.  

Actually, this was not their first trip to our country. The day after they arrived, we visited a church in Dimitrovgrad. Brother McDaniel preached and encouraged the congregation. The Spirit of the Lord was moving strongly through healing and prophecies. The next morning was Sunday and we traveled to Haskovo for the morning service. In the afternoon we went to Kurdjali where the pastor of the local congregation is Hari Atanasov. On the following day in the morning we went to Turkey and Greece to pray for these nations for salvation. In the evening we had a church service in Sliven where ministers from the gipsy part of town were gathered. The congregation was enthusiastic and opened up their hearts for the message that brother Lamar shared. 

In Stara Zagora on the following day McDaniel's family led the morning devotion at the Bulgarian Theological College. In the evening we went to a church in the Roma part of town.

Wednesday morning we left Stara Zagora very early and traveled to Macedonia. We spend there couple of hours and returned to Sofia. In the evening we visited the church of Pastor Atanas Georgiev and had a wonderful time there.

The next day the McDaniel's left Bulgaria. For my wife and me it was an honor to travel with such great ministers. We learned a lot from fellowshipping with them. All the churches were encouraged and challenged as well from brother Lamar's preaching.

Thank you, brother and sister McDaniel, for your ministry in our country. We will continue to pray for you and hope to see you back in Bulgaria again! God bless you in everything you do!

As a Christian Ministry venturing in Missions we have become comfortable partnering and ministering with groups and families from so many countries… Well so many and yet never before we had the honor to serve the Lord with a family from Norway. So for the first time we were to host Norwegians and we had no idea what to expect and let me tell you right away that Tormod and Anita Olsen - an army of just two literally filled our van, our towns and villages, our world. Since we have never met them before – we were praying that God was sending us at least some normal people to work with but it was such a surprise to discover that they were far from normal – they were as crazy as we are and folks so in love with Jesus and his flock. WOW! A week started and ended like it was just 7 hours – we felt in love with the Olsens seeing how they jumped straight into the deep waters of the Bulgarian ministry context without hesitation and restrains – they began loving on people, ministering with their unique talents and uplifting the hurting people with a contagious spirit of enthusiasm and Jesus love. WOW!! Sofia, Geman, Petrich, Panaguyrishte, Levski, Teteven – day after day the people of Bulgaria from the various churches found their Spiritual Vitamins, encouragement, specific word of God through prophecy, healings, freedom and salvation through the self-sacrificial, giving and warm ministry of these folks. We can not wait for them to come back in June… I personally am in anticipation to see what Daddy has for us in the future – and I am sure it is special. Thank you God – for bringing those two WOW!!! People in our world. Dinko Zlatarov Mission trip to Sofia, Bulgaria 2014 In February we went to Sofia, Bulgaria with a great expectation, to begin a work with the Care For All Ministries. It has become to be a strong experience in many ways. When we met Dinko Zlatarov we felt welcomed and loved at ones. Care For All, is a good and well-planned ministry with a high focus on humanitarian and evangelistic work, This ministry operates a great deal of time among the Gypsies - the poorest of the poor in Bulgaria. It was amazing to see how Dinko and his team worked among them. Also - it was impressive to see the new established churches that are continually growing, the outreach like giving food and pray for the sick and making children`s street parties give fantastic results. The education work among the children, giving them skills in English and how to use computers will help them increase their carrier development and avoid the mistakes of their surroundings. We can read in Matthew, 25:40 “Truly I tell you, in so far as you did it for one of the least of these My Brethren, you did it for me.” Care For All is living this, and what we saw was the love of the Father that came true this work. It was a great pleasure for us to see people saved and healed through this week’s work. The people we met, children and the grown-ups were dedicated and in love with Jesus. Through this work we can see the kingdom grow and we recommend Care For All to you to partner with in the Kingdom of God in Bulgaria.
