From a missions perspective, Bulgaria may seem to not be a very strategic country. It is in the corner of Europe at the very southernmost part of the former communist block, and as every news article on Bulgaria will point out, it is the poorest European Union country. Why would God possibly use this country to do anything great?
I could not disagree more. Before moving here, I made the argument that starting a ReachGlobal team in Sofia is not only a good way to reach Bulgaria with the Gospel, but to reach the world as well. My superiors in our organization agreed and sent us here. We are beginning to see our vision become a reality.
This morning I met with a man from Liberia who I am training to teach the Bible to others. This evening I lead a Bible study that had in attendance citizens of North America, South America, Africa, and Europe. Tomorrow I will lead another Bible study with people from America, Africa, and Asia. On Sunday we have a small group meet at our house. In attendance are people from Europe and America. Bulgaria is a great place to meet people from around the world. It is also a great place to train people from around the world.
If you want to tell the world about Jesus, consider coming to Bulgaria. Great things are happening in this so called poor, out of the way, little European country.
