October 26, 2017 - Yes, Christmas is less than 2 months away – we have been busy ordering our stock for the Holidays for the stores we operate here in Bulgaria. It would be nice to have a store near each of you so that you could shop at it to get you Christmas gifts. Unfortunately, we do not but we do have a way for you to do some of your Christmas Shopping online.
As followers of Jesus we know we are to be good stewards of what we are given. We all want to make our income go further. We like to get things a good price, but when we do we may be supporting slavery somewhere in the world. You may save a few coins but knowing that this only encourages the sweat shops to make more and keep their worker’s wages too low.
In Bulgaria jobs are hard to come by, corruption is all around. 25% of the Bulgarians (on Planet Earth) live and work overseas to make a living for their families. Most if they could would like to stay here but if it is the difference between working and providing for the family or staying near and not being able to provide – they choose to go abroad, but that means they are away from their families for months at a time.
That is one of the reasons we began New Start our company here in BG. It allows folks to work in their homes and supplement their income in support of their families. The only way we can keep them employed is for people to purchase the knitwear they make. The more we sell the more we can keep them working. To encourage that we are running a special now through the 15th of November – FREE SHIPPING!
We want to get as much of the Knitwear we have out and being used by folks which will mean we will need our knitters to replace what we sell. So if you are not sure what to get that special someone in your life why not think about shopping with a propose at one of our online stores
Marketplacemanna.biz (North American site in dollars) or
frombulgariawithlove.com (European Site in Euros)
Just type in the code “shipfree” in the checkout box when asked. We know it is not a huge savings but it is our way of saying thanks for your support and Merry Christmas!
This week pray for the English Homework Club – due to the size we are dividing it into 2 groups. Pray for this transition.
Pray also for Team Balkans as some changes are coming to the team – pray for God’s Wisdom and Guidance.
Finally pray for the Virtual Christmas Gift Box Ministry – we are now getting into the organization of this ministry. (want to give click here)
