We went to Breakthrough Christian Centre in Sofia where we were made to feel very welcome by or friends there. Last night was very cold (-12C) and unfortunately the heating in the large meeting hall had failed. This had to be the coldest church service any of us could remember and it's just possible that the singing and worship was more enthusiastically participated in than usual.
After lunch we dropped into the warehouse to load yet more boxes in readiness for Monday morning and then we visited a huge new supermarket to spend some of the money raised from our Just Giving Christmas Box Appeal page. This money is really helpful as we are able to taylor boxes for different groups. This year we are short of boxes for men so we were able to use the money raised to buy items suaitable to give out to men and teen boys too. A big thank you to all those who donated to the appeal through the Just Giving website- it has been really helpful and an innnovation that we will consider expanding next year.
Tomorrow we visit some rural schools and our first (of many) orphanages and we will be joined by Chrissy as we start a very, very busy week.
