Stories From the Field

Church, do not grow weary in doing good!

I recently attended an event in which young people from Plovdiv could gather and practice different languages they spoke.  It was a great opportunity to meet new people!  I shared with a new acquaintance that I am an American and am working with the Protestant church.  This always comes with a bit of hesitation on my part, since I never know what the person’s reaction will be when they hear “Protestant” – will they think I’m in a cult?  However, I was surprised when this woman said, “Oh, I think churches are wonderful!” She went on to tell me how she knew several Bulgarian families who moved to the US, and how evangelical churches there had been the ones to help the families get settled and even gave them toys for their children!  Her enthusiasm was such an encouragement.  Church, do not grow weary in doing good!
