gathering in bulgaria may 2019
“May they experience such perfect unity that the world will know that you sent me and that you love them as much as you love me.” John 17:23b
J17 Director Joe Tosini, Pastors Les & Chris Hughey and Pastor Don Curry arrived in early May to be with Peter & Desi Petrov during Pope Francis’ visit to Bulgaria. (The first such visit by a Pope in 17 years.) The time spent in Bulgaria was rich with meeting and spending time with strategic leaders in Bulgaria. Joe, Les and Don were all asked to speak on a Sunday morning at influential Churches around Sofia, Bulgaria, adding to John 17’s connection with more leaders in the nation. Much time was spent planning and “white-boarding” the future of John 17 in Bulgaria and around the world. There is a wonderful move of Unity taking place in Sofia with Peter & Desi Petrov carrying the torch, and we trust it will continue to spread to the rest of the nation.
