Was playing keyboard at an interesting service last night at my home church. We had a visiting Pastor from the gypsy church in Sliven, Bulgaria who was telling us about his work among the 'Roma' people in Bulgaria.
He showed us a photo of a building he believes God wants him to buy to enable them to have a proper church. He told us he had agreed with the owner in May of this year that he would buy the building at a cost of £16,000 and that even thought property prices have risen dramatically in Bulgaria the owner has honoured the agreement. Encho (the pastor) needs to raise the money by the end of the year otherwise the owner will put it on the open market.
People in Walsall have sent a number of containers to Bulgaria over the last ten years and it was interesting that many of the people in the congregation had actually been to Sliven.
Please pray for Encho and his family and for the provision of the funds to buy this building for the glory of God!
