He added, "I see my work for the Mission as a ministry. Many of the people we work with have no hope, no vision for their future, and no peace. Their lives are hard, and they live in the reality of this day by day. That is why it's so important that they receive emotional and spiritual support and love. This builds a good relationship and leads us to share our problems and pray together.
"When a person accepts Christ as their Saviour, I rejoice with the angels in heaven. I continue to stay close to them, and discipling them, and I have so much joy seeing God's work in their lives.
"In the Hristovi family, the father, Andrey, had a gambling addiction, which caused great problems in the family. The good thing was that he recognized his weakness and spoke openly about his addiction. We talked, prayed, and fasted for his soul, and God heard our prayers and changed his heart. The family's life turned around 180 degrees. Now Andrey has a stable job, attends church regularly with his wife, is baptized, and has officially married his wife.

After many conversations, prayer, and Christian gatherings, she shared with me one day, 'I love my mother-in-law! She curses and scolds me, but Jesus teaches us to love. He's given me love for her!' She cried in front of the whole congregation and testified to the other families about the change that had taken place in her life after she came to know God.
"I want to encourage everyone who gives their money to support the work of Mission Without Borders with the words of 1 Corinthians 15:58, 'Your labour in the Lord is not in vain.'”
