Just recently, they returned from a missions trip to Greece which we were also invited to join, but were unable to do so due to our full preaching schedule in Bulgaria. The night of the leadership course, the team was leaving on a ministry trip to England and Germany that same night. Yet, they were eager to sit around the drawing board with us, learn new leadership principles and draft new strategies for ministry to implement in their trip. While many claim that the times of revival in Bulgaria re long gone, we were again amazed by the enthusiasm and motivation of the ministry teams in Sofia. And it seemed clear that true revival comes not from the crowds that it draws, but from the internal God-given motivation of people that are willing to dedicate their whole lives for bringing true spiritual revival to the land.
