For some time we have understood that the cost of flights to Sofia are becoming increasingly uneconomic for the monthly visits of our Chaplain, Martin Jacques. Recently, we had the opportunity to make a change when we received a substantial financial grant spread over threee years from CMS Ireland to support the work of the Church of the Resurrection in Bulgaria.
Following a lot of prayerful planning and preparations, this last week the Chaplaincy has purchased a Skoda Octavia for the use of our Chaplain. On Saturday Martin, with his daughter Claire, set off for Sofia in the car. They took with them a camera so hopefully the blog will soon show visible proof of the success of their visit!
Thank you CMS Ireland for assisting us in extending our mission and witness in Romania and Bulgaria.
