We're Going Back to Bulgaria This Year!

Praise God! The Lord has raised up a team and we are returning to Bulgaria this summer after taking last year off. We have a group of ten that are committed to going as the Lord provides and we have begun to work together as a team to prepare for our trip.

The group this year includes Pastor Chuck and Lynda Kelly, Zach and Linzi Drew, Joey Leslie, myself (Pastor Mike Kern) and my daughter Megan, Roy Garrett, Brijon Ortiz, and Mayla Truncali. Please keep all of us and our families in prayer.

We had our first team meeting last Wednesday and will be meeting every two weeks for until May, when we will begin to meet weekly. In the meantime, we will be planning several other activities as well, including a trip to Las Vegas to dine together at a Bulgarian restaurant, and a night for the returning team members to share stories and pictures with the newcomers.

Also, fundraising is a big priority for a number of our team members so be praying for the finances of the trip (about $20,000 for the entire team). Also, be praying for direction on how you can support the team as well. Our team is willing to work hard to raise funds if you need work done around the house, weeds pulled, cars washed, etc.

Don't forget to stop by our yard sale this weekend either! Friday and Saturday morning, we'll be set up in the church parking lot (1690 Newberry Drive) from 7am to noon. And check back to this blog often, as I'll be keeping you updated on all our activities. God Bless!
