My Spring Break Outreach Trip to Bulgaria
This April, from the 9th to the 15th, I will have the opportunity to go to Razgrad, Bulgaria, which has a very large Turkish speaking minority. With a small group of students from my school, we will be helping a missionary family by hosting children’s programs at their church, and doing outreach at the Isperih orphanage.
Since the students in our group speak Turkish, we hope to visit some of the Turkish speaking families in the village and share the gospel with them. I have heard many stories of how God has used the students who have gone on this trip before, and am very excited to be able to go to Bulgaria this year.
I would be very grateful if you could pray for me and for the others going, as prayer is vital to the success of the trip. I have never done children’s ministry before, and am somewhat nervous. I also need prayer for trip as a whole, that God may bless the conversations I have with people. Pray for our group as well as we prepare for the trip and learn more about each other, and that we may find a chaperone for the trip, but most of all pray that we may be a blessing to the Turks in Razgrad, and that they see Christ’s love through us.
Thank you for sharing in this ministry opportunity through your faithful prayer support.
Yours in Christ,
