Waving hands, kids talking simultaneously, excitement, smiles, and some happy tears. The atmosphere in the room was electric and continued to intensify as almost all of the kids expressed a desire to share a miracle testimony of God’s power working in their lives. “Who would like to share a story of how God has helped them in the past few months?” This one simple question asked by Hrisi, our Children’s Director in Bulgaria, sparked a one-hour conversation among all of the kids during a recent afternoon activity. One by one each child expressed their gratitude to the Lord for His help, provision, healing, and love.

Finally, Mary,* one of the young teen girls who has been in our program for over six years, got up to share her story. For months her bank card had been broken and she couldn’t replace it. She would keep all the pieces together and each time she would go to the bank she would pray that God would somehow make the ATM work when she put the fragile, pieced-together card in to withdraw money. And each time her faith expectations were met with a working card and a correct transaction.
