Having successfully completed the national leadership training in Rouse and the Bible training module in Veliko Tarnovo, we traveled to the second largest Bulgarian city of Plovdiv for the annual BREAKTHROUGH youth conference. During the conference, we presented a module on ministry to youth through the internet in the first national meeting of Bulgarian Christian Bloggers, urging the attendees to become a part of the growing wave of Bulgarian ministries that use extensively the power of the internet.

After members of our team arrived at the meeting from different parts of the country, we changed locations to setup our equipment for the live webcast of the RETURN Christian concert held as part of the conference at the local open-air amphitheatre. At 7:30 PM, we began broadcasting the concert, which had over 2,000 in attendance and several thousand more watching online. An hour in the concert the weather surprised us with heavy rain, yet only a few people left the concert as worship teams continued praising the Lord with thunder and lightening falling all around us. Unfortunately, the storm picked up and we were forced to stop the concert around 9:00 PM. While the DVD of this LIVE event is being prepared for publication, some of the pre-released videos can be seen on the internet at:
