Pray for DOVE Europe

Ron Myer
DOVE Europe Apostolic Team Leader

The apostolic team includes Peter Bunton, Dirk and Hanneke Develing, and Larry Kreider. In November of 2021, we hosted a virtual DOVE Europe regional leaders gathering and conference, connecting with leaders across Europe.

  • We are grateful for church growth and the launching of new Discovery Bible Studies.
  • Pray that we would be able to connect with those who are called to be part of DOVE Europe.
  • Pray for church planters as well as established churches who are called to be part of the DOVE Europe family.
  • Pray everyone would grow in the knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ and walk in the fullness of the gospel, impacting their world.

Bulgaria

DOVE Christian Fellowship, Bulgaria – Sliven
Danail & Nora Tanevi: Sliven

Praise God that during this pandemic our church continues to be healthy and vibrant. God gave us wisdom how to use the internet to reach people beyond our town and nation. We already have people from all around the world as a part of our church using online options. We glorify Him for the people who joined our church and that their lives are changing.

  • Pray God will give us wisdom how to continue reaching people with the gospel in effective ways.
  • Pray for a fresh release of the supernatural.
  • Pray for God’s wisdom to continue to grow strong churches.
  • Pray for a protection of health over our church.

DOVE Christian Fellowship Lozarevo
Dimka Teneva: Lozarevo

We thank God for increasing the church. We were able to start building our own church building.

Pray for:

  • finances to complete the church building.
  • wisdom on how to reach and disciple people for Christ.
  • a new venue to meet in. The church is growing, and it seems we will need a new venue while the one we are building will be for smaller gatherings.

DOVE Christian Fellowship Sofia, Velingrad, and Sandanski
Plamen & Maya Kolevi: Sofia

We are grateful for the genuine care shown by the DOVE global family! We feel it and experience it deeply. We are inspired! We are grateful to God that in these uneasy times He protects us in body, soul, and spirit.

  • Pray for new people to be added as the church multiplies. We have already started some online projects; pray for strategies and plans how to serve the new people effectively online.
  • There is a brand new “oikos” consisting of 8 families (16 adults plus children). We need fresh and clear strategy for them. They can be described under 3 categories:
    • spiritual orphans without a spiritual home
    • active God servants. With them we can start training with Discovery Bible Studies
    • people who have a spiritual home but already have Discovery Bible Study with unbelievers. We have mentored this group every Monday for the last 9 months.
  • As a whole there is great spiritual hunger! Pray God’s help to respond according to His will! Pray for wisdom as to how to take care of these families. Shall we plant a new church or add them to the body of DOVE Sofia?
  • We need a venue to congregate. Pray God grants His wisdom for the right place which will be large enough to accommodate all the people He will add to His body!
  • That throughout 2022 each person from our family will discover the person of peace and start a Discovery Bible Study group.
  • For the existing churches in Sofia, Velingrad, Sandanski, and Lester (UK) will continue to grow with the life of God.

The Netherlands

  • us to connect with persons of peace in order to plant new churches in the Netherlands, Europe, and worldwide.
  • us to have creative ideas in growing and leading our businesses.
  • us to develop a training program for “mission and business.”
  • us to have wisdom according to the biblical principle of sowing the fruit of our businesses.

Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time.  Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. 1 Peter 5:6-7 NIV
