During the meetings, there were a group of ladies attending from a nearby village (the term for a smaller city in the countryside). They invited me to come and visit them in their village. They had gained the permission of the mayor who had given them access to use the small hall in their village and invite friends to come and hear me speak.
When I arrived, there were 20 people filling that hall who listened to me speak about the second coming of Christ for over 30 minutes. Afterwards, some of those present shared their stories of testimonie. The mayor then stood up and gave a lenghty speech on the importance of studying the Bible, how her grandmother instilled in her the necessity of reading the Bible every day, and how she wished there could be a Bible study in this hall on a regular basis. When she said this I was amazed that the mayor of a former Communist country that once tried to destroy faith in the Bible would be so eager for her people to study it. I sensed an opportunity.
I noticed almost none of the people in the hall seemed to have a Bible with them. I asked her if I could raise the money to provide Bibles for the people in the village, would she see that they are distributed to them? She eagerly agreed to distribute them to anyone who wants them. It costs about 13 leva, or $8 USD, to provide a Bulgarian Bible and Steps to Christ book.
I am seeking to raise $2500 to provide 300 Bibles for the mayor to distribute to the village of Novo Selo. This would make Bibles available to the majority of homes.
This would put a Bible in the hands of some who grew up under Communist rule and perhaps have read very little of it. It makes God's Word available to anyone in that village who wants it. I will work through my translator, the local pastor, and the Bulgarian SDA Union to have the Bibles delivered.
This is the Novo Selo mayor.
I would like collect these funds by October 31 have the transferred to the Bulgarian church headquarters to that they Bibles and Steps to Christ can be purchased and delivered.
Thank you for helping to put Bibles in the hands of God's children, young and old.
