Today we are going to pray for two of our missionaries in Bulgaria.
That's a country in Eastern Europe. It was part of the old Soviet
The government used to teach that there is no God. These days,
planting new churches in Bulgaria is hard because most people
are still atheists. They think religion has nothing for them, so they
reject the gospel without even knowing what it is.
Brian and Mandy Davis are our missionaries we support in
Bulgaria through our church's Cooperative Program giving.
They agree Bulgaria's spiritual climate is dark, but they point
to examples when the light of Christ pushes back against that
dark. People are becoming Christians.
It takes a long time to get to know Bulgarians well enough to
share Christ with them. Brian and Mandy have worked for some
time with Donka, an 85-year-old widow. She grew up under
communism. Donka comes by often to read the Bible. She knows
Brian and Mandy have something in their lives she needs. But
so far she has not accepted Christ.
Today, let's pray for Brian and Mandy, for Donka and others
