Christmas in July

Christmas is upon us and greetings of glad tidings abound. All around the world; men, women, boys and girls reflect on this special time of year. The children are so anxious for Christmas that many will have a hard time sleeping tonight. Receiving a gift is a special thing, but when Jesus said that it’s more blessed to give than to receive, as always; he spoke the truth.

As I reflect on the great “gifts” I have received this year, I want to share something remarkable. In July, the Calvary Chapel Bullhead City Bulgaria Servant Team flew half around the world to serve other Christians, but WE were the ones who received the gift. Sharing with friends in Sofia & Svishtov, Bulgaria and Skopje, Macedonia; we were blessed beyond measure.

Working with Blaga Vest Sofia, Blaga Vest, Svishtov, and Dobra Vest Skopje; we experienced grace and love and joy. We could never give enough thanks to our wonderful hosts, who made us feel like family, but maybe as we look back, we can just thank God for allowing such a great summer.

Please enjoy the photos as I let them do most of the speaking. In the meantime, I’ll feel like the child waiting for my Christmas in July next year!
