Koshov is a small village, near Ruse in northeast Bulgaria. The Orthodox church there is only open for funeral services, and the priest just visits from time to time. But even in this tiny community, there is a constant Christian presence.

For example, George and Penka Tsvetkov, who spend time in Koshov and are members of the Ruse United Methodist Church, purchase 50 copies of each issue of the Bulgarian language edition of The Upper Room and distribute them to the elderly in the village.

For those that receive the copies, The Upper Room is a daily companion.

Examples of Christian service like that of the Tsvetkovs encourages us to continue our work, despite difficulties we face.
