Daughters of Bulgaria: Confronting the Sale of Bulgaria's Women and Children (Audio)

Welcome to our first audio blog post! In the coming months, we'll be releasing the audio from some of the more than 90 seminars recorded live at the 2017 PCA Global Missions Conference in Dallas. These will be posted on our blog and distributed through MTW Online, our bi-weekly email newletter. A new seminar will be posted every two weeks. We think you'll find these seminars informative, encouraging, and challenging. 


We don’t always think of a country’s top export as being its daughters and children. Yet for Bulgaria, Europe’s poorest and most exploited country, this is life. MTW’s team in Bulgaria was confronted with this reality and sensed God’s prompting to act. The Daughters of Bulgaria began simply as a desire to do something, but grew into a movement mobilizing Christians from different backgrounds to be a coalition committed to serving sexually exploited women in Bulgaria and those trafficked throughout Europe. The mission of Daughters of Bulgaria is to move women from vulnerability to wholeness through targeted efforts in prevention, rescue, and restoration.

Listen as missionaries Dal & Beth Stanton and Katherine Long discuss this critical ministry. 

This seminar was recorded live at the 2017 PCA Global Missions Conference in Dallas.

Seeing Them as Daughters

Do we see women who are caught in human trafficking the way Jesus does?

Sports as Missions in Bulgaria: A Video

Sports is a great way to build relationships. Interns spent part of their time playing baseball and lacrosse, opening doors to the gospel.


“I’m sorry that I can’t believe in God”

Her son had become a Christian, but she just couldn't get there.


Vlado: A Life Transformed in Bulgaria - Video

Vlado, a former "Orthodox atheist" with a drug addition, is now a follower of Christ who is helping to plant churches.


Pray for the women and children of Bulgaria caught in the dark world of trafficking and exploitation, and for the Daughters of Bulgaria minstry shining the light of Christ.

Pray for the MTW team in Bulgaria and for those they serve.

Pray for those in Sofia, Bulgaria, who will be exposed to the gospel through our sports ministry. Pray that many would be drawn to Christ as a result of relationships built with believers.

Pray for those coming to faith in Bulgaria. And for those who can't yet believe due to a background deeply rooted in communism and atheism. 

Pray for Bulgaria, whose population is considered to be 95% "Orthodox atheist" (Orthodox in name only). Praise God for Bulgarians who are coming to faith and helping to plant churches! 

Pray for Europeans who have heard the gospel but are hesitant to fully commit to Christ. Pray that God would draw them to Himself.

Pray for the young Bulgarian women who are introduced to Christ through small group discussions, Bible studies, and English language classes. 

Pray for women forced by poverty into sex work. Pray for MTW ministries around the globe seeking to rescue and minister to these women.

Pray for two women, Monika and Andrea, who have recently come to faith against the odds in a hard-to-reach, largely atheistic European city.

Pray for Monika, that God would continue to heal her, give her a new purpose, and protect her life from physical harm, and for Andrea, that she would grow deep roots of faith and be a witness to those like her—unlikely subjects—of the reality of the grace of God.

Pray for college students in Sofia, Bulgaria, to grasp God's deep love for them and surrender their lives to Him.
