Spotlight: Serving a land of contrasts

SOFIA, BULGARIA — Shopping malls, casinos and expensive cars fill the streets of this former-Soviet city, missionary April Everhart said. But many of its people have little food or clothing – and huddle around space heaters during the winter months.
Everhart and her husband, Clint, were part of a team from Germany that traveled to Bulgaria recently. Eastern European Mission provided a truck with about 4,000 Bulgarian Bibles and clothes for the people of Sofia.
The team worked with missionaries Tom and Sheryl Black to distribute the supplies.
During the distribution, Clint Everhart dug through piles of clothes to find warm coats for a man’s son and daughter. The tearful father shook his hand and said something in Bulgarian.
“What he said I will never truly know,” the missionary said. “However, the look in his eyes and his face said it all.”
