Some of you may have heard how Bulgaria is a crossroads country.  It is a member of the European Union, but it is also shares borders with three non E.U. countries.  One of these countries (Turkey) lies largely in Asia.  Bulgaria is a crossroads between the east and the west, and between Europe and Asia.
The crossroads aspect of Bulgaria can be seen in the Bulgaria language class that David is taking.  It is a small class.  There are only three students.  Yet, we have a students from three different countries present.  There is a man from the Ukraine, a woman from China, and David from America.  Between the three of us we speak at least 5 different languages (and we are working on number 6 together).
Bulgaria is an entry point into the European Union, and as such there are people from all over the world coming to Sofia.  In the last week alone we have see people from at least 4 different continents.  If you want to meet people from around the world, come live in Sofia!


  1. OK, I'm convinced... Can I come in a couple of weeks? Seriously, I think you're describing a very significant reason why it is so important that you are where you are and are looking to God to help you make an impact there. Take your time to let the complexity of such a "crossroads" place wash over you... don't try to jump to conclusions, to explanations to quickly. Observe, reflect, ask questions and enjoy! There are obviously many ways God could lead you there... and likely a few for which He has especially equipped and prepared you.

  2. Thanks Jim.
    That is something we need to remember every day.
    We can't wait to see you!
