Stories of Transformation through Christ!

More than one million villages still have not heard the Gospel. You can help us reach as many as possible. People, just like these, are waiting to be transformed by Christ.

Travel in Bulgaria can be challenging, especially during the hot, dry days of summer. Two of Reach A Village’s ministry partners there are committed to doing an annual summer visiting tour around the country.

In her teen years, Susie’s friends invited her to attend a program especially for teenagers at a church in their village. “I remember that the program was called ‘Choose Life,’” she says. “My friends and I learned the Ten Commandments. But I didn’t take time to learn more. I didn’t understand that God loved me and died for me.”
