Revival Harvest Campaign 2014 in Bulgaria

For the 11th year in a row we have initiated our Revival Harvest Campaign in Bulgaria – a time of intense ministry throughout the whole country. This year we’ve invited a Danish minister by the name of Johny Noer who first came 25 years ago while Bulgaria was still under communism.

In April, 1989 Brother Noer and his Pilgrim Convoy entered Bulgaria from its Southern border. They met with Bulgarian believers under the Regime and ministered in several churches along the way. Their last services were in the Black Sea port city of Varna where 4,000 gathered in the first service alone.

The message he preached was plain and simple. In fact, it contained the exact words he was forbidden by the Communist Police to say after being arrested and his passport taken from him. The words of the message were: “LET MY PEOPLE GO!”

At the Sunday morning service, over 8,000 Bulgarian Christians from the whole country gathered in and around the Pentecostal Church of Varna. They were all surrounded by a dense police cordon. Johny Noer stood at an improvised (makeshift) platform on the roof of the old church building at Lenin Boulevard with a message which shook the spiritual foundations of Bulgaria: “LET MY PEOPLE GO!” No more than seven months later, the communist government in Bulgaria resigned never to take power in the country again.

Exactly a quarter of a century later, we’ve invited brother Johny Noer to Bulgaria again to proclaim the words of the same message to the same people of the same God: “LET MY PEOPLE GO!”

Bulgaria

Plamen Oresharski formally resigned as prime minister on July 23, after weeks of speculation and – in certain quarters – anxiety about whether he would play his part in carrying out the agreement reached by political parties to hold early parliamentary elections.

The Wall Street Journal: Bulgaria’s Prime Minister Plamen Oresharski late Wednesday submitted his resignation to parliament, a move that will lead to his entire cabinet stepping down after a tumultuous year marked by public protests, a banking crisis and confrontations with the European Union. [more]

Bulgarian Outgoing Ministers React to Cabinet Resignation: Most of Bulgaria’s outgoing ministers have assessed their work in office as “positive” and have voiced warnings the next government would face a number of issues. [more]

Deutsche Welle: Socialist-backed Oresharski Cabinet resigns in Bulgaria. Bulgaria’s prime minister has resigned ahead of snap elections to end months of political turmoil in the European Union’s poorest country. The legislature as expected approve the resignation on Thursday. [more]

New York Times: The fate of one of the biggest banks in the European Union’s poorest country, Bulgaria, remains hostage to a political crisis, which caused the prime minister’s government to resign on Wednesday. [more]

BBC: Bulgaria prime minister quits to allow snap election. The embattled Socialist prime minister of Bulgaria has resigned after only a year in office to allow for an early election on 5 October. [more]

MORE to COME:

  • August 5, 2014 – President Plevneliev announces the line-up of the caretaker Cabinet, which will have reduced powers and whose main task will be to prepare and hold the snap elections. This will be the second caretaker government appointed by Plevneliev, who was elected on the GERB ticket in 2011 – in March 2013, he appointed ambassador Marin Raykov as caretaker prime minister.
  • August 6, 2014 – the 42nd National Assembly is officially prorogued by presidential decree.
  • October 5, 2014 – Bulgaria holds early parliamentary elections.
