MISSION REPORT 2019
1:1 Bible study & our deep study on the book of Isaiah
By Msn. John Jung, Sofia Chapter 2
We started 2019 with Mark 6:38 to learn the ‘five loaves and two fish’s faith. Our five loaves & two fish were 1:1 bible study. Msn. Maria Jung has faithfully studied 1:1 Bible with sister Maria (마리아. now lives in France and studies for a nurse) for more than 3 years through skype. Msn. John Jung did 1:1 with brother Dimitar (디미트르.sales manager in LG Bulgaria) and Dani (다니. Maria’s son) before ESBC through skype. Sh. Georgi did 1:1 with sister Boriyana (보리야나. now lives in Germany) through skype.
God blessed richly our 1:1 Bible study by skype, because sister Maria, Boriyana and brother Dani, David participated in the ESBC 2019. All participants from Sofia chapter 2 were 14 people. Also brother Dimitar has decided to commit to our SWS from last September until now. It was a miraculous work of God, because we prayed God would send one person after shd. Vessela went as a missionary to America. She went as a missionary to Catonsville UBF, Baltimore right after ISBC 2018 in Louisville, KY. Praise God to answer our prayer exactly in His time.
Our ministry is small like five loaves and two fish but God has helped us to focus only on God’s words since 2012.1.1. We have studied Luke, Ephesians, Acts, Exodus, John, 1 Samuel, Colossians, Malachi, Matthew, 1 Corinthians, Mark, Romans, Genesis, Phillipians and Isaiah for 8 years. Especially throughout the year we studied deeply the book of Isaiah and learned God’s righteousness and His clear direction to the redeemed – “Preaching God’s salvation and His Servant – Christ to the world”. Without the preaching the Gospel we can lose peace, righteousness and God’s blessings. After the study of Isaiah we deeply understood God’s mind and decided on a new direction for 2020 – “Preaching the Gospel and raising Jesus’ disciples” based on God’s words. (Matthew 28:19-20 & Isaiah 50:4) May God strengthen us to obey those words with humble minds.
We thank God for his great work toward 2 gen – Jin & Chan Jung. They were baptized during the Vision camp. It was a beautiful and graceful work of God. They studied God’s words in advance before the Vision camp and accepted Jesus as their Christ by faith. Also they served ESBC with dance and choir. May God lead them to grow as spiritual heirs. Amen! We thank God for giving a new baby boy Moses to Georgi and Heather’s family. They have four kids (Iliya, Daniela, Samuel and Moses). God gave them good health and wisdom. They grow well in God’s protection and participate even in SWS. From this year we started CBF with Georgi’s kids and br. Dimitar’s kids. Msn. Heather served this ministry with prayer and a heart. We pray that God may give her good ideas and health to serve CBF faithfully in 2020. Georgi and Heather pray for a new sheep for 1:1 Bible study in 2020. May God use this house church preciously to serve God’s flock with 1:1.
