Due to inclement weather, the 9 a.m. service for Sunday, Jan. 20 has been cancelled. We will have one morning service at 10:45 a.m. as road conditions improve.

Update from the F. Family

Most of our ministry focus right now is through our main church here in Varna. Our church plant is on hold because of COVID restrictions. Please pray for wisdom as we figure out how and when to reopen. “P” preached three Sunday mornings in February with a short series on “Characteristics of True Disciples.” “A” continues to lead the music team, but she has limited her lessons because of restrictions. We are very thankful that the team led music themselves while we were in the States. This is a blessing because one of our goals is for them to become self-sufficient and be able to help at future church plants. We are continuing our language study with online lessons. "P" is also working on planning and equipment for the outdoor men’s ministry to start back when the weather improves. The team’s “Expositional preaching” book project has been fully translated and is now in the publishing phase. We are beginning a smaller project to get a small booklet called “first Steps in the Spiritual Disciplines” translated to Bulgarian. We both used this resource in the States and in Israel.

Our son’s newest passion is Rubix cubing, and he is fast enough to embarrass the rest of us. He also got a flute for Christmas, so “A” has been teaching him that. He is helping out on the worship team on different instruments. In February both kids went back to school in person so just pray for safety and that they would continue to be able to meet in person.

“H”, our daughter, was very glad to get home to her pet guinea pigs! She is still singing with the music team and everyone at “CH” is encouraged by her participation. She is continuing with her violin lessons. She is also a big helper around the house. Both kids are looking forward to better weather to get outside more.
