December 2020-January 2021
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
We left America after a six month furlough on November 17 to return to our mission field. Everything went smoothly on our trip back to Bulgaria. When we arrived in Sofia we didn’t have a Covid 19 test so airport personnel filled out paperwork on us and said we could get tested or quarantine for 10 days. The authorities never called or came by to check up on us though they could have. I got tested… it was negative so I was free to go about doing the shopping, paying bills and visiting some the neighbors and the church folk in Karnobat. We arrived back on Wednesday, Nov. 18 and on Thursday had a evening service via online. It was real good to be back in the saddle speaking Bulgarian and endeavoring to minister to the locals here. By November 29 we were all able to go back to Karnobat for normal services. We have not been sick praise the Lord and only a few of our people have contracted the dreaded virus but overcame it quickly. It’s sad and frustrating for me at least that the majority of people are willing to take a vaccine for a virus that has a 97% recovery rate. I understand some may take it just so they don’t have to keep getting tested. But I guess it’s what we’ve come to and things seem to be heading in the right direction to set up the world for Antichrist rule. Nevertheless our marching orders remain the same.
My first time back with Maulucci Team as some of you may know them was on Nov. 24 as we went about getting out the Bible portions. Recently my family and I have gotten re-acquitted with Bro. Slavi Dichev and his family. He is a Bulgarian Pastor of a gypsy church and he and his wife adopted a son also as we years ago. They have been a big help in distributing the Word and some really good spiritual fellowship for our family. Bro. Maulucci gave these numbers for 2020: 329 villages, 20 cities, total of 117,371 houses and over 13k miles driven to get out these Bible Portions all over Bulgaria. We are grateful to have been a help in this effort. We plan to sow the Seed tomorrow, Jan.2/21 actually with the Dichev’s.
We want to thank all of you that have come on board with us recently for financial and prayer support and all of you that have gone above and beyond last year that which you normally give. Thank you isn’t enough but you will have your reward, 1 Cor. 3:8- “ and every man shall receive his own reward according to his own labour”. Luke 6:38 has also proven practical in your lives and ours. Its all God’s resources but we will certainly give account of how we used them. The Lord bless you and we are looking forward to seeing what the Lord will do with and through us this year as well.
Bro. Danny Kessler and Family
