Kate & Andrew Blackwell

"You planned something bad for me, but God produced something good from it, in order to save the lives of many people, just as he's doing today." (Gen. 50:20) Our experience of God's faithfulness in using circumstances for his glory has brought us on a journey to Bulgaria to share Christ with others in difficult circumstances.

In 2013 God placed a specific call on our lives to work in Bulgaria with those who have been, or are at risk of being, trafficked or sexually exploited.  

We are working to support local Roma who have a desire to see their communities changed by the love of Christ.  Our desire is to see these communities changed in such a way that no Roma person is trafficked, and that those who have been trafficked, have a desire to come home.  We are primarily working in partnership with the Navigators’ ministry, Discipling for Development www.disciplingfordevelopment.org .    

It is an incredible blessing to us to be a part of what God is doing in Bulgaria.
