Blackwell Family – Bulgaria
The Blackwells (Kate, Andrew, Tom, Ellie, Ben and Will) are in Sofia, Bulgaria serving God with the European Christian Mission. Bulgaria is a country of just over 7 million people. Together with Romania and Hungary, it provides 80% of Western Europe’s prostitutes. Most of these come from the extremely poor and marginalised Roma (also called gypsy) communities. They are working with the Mission to the World team and their ministry, Daughters of Bulgaria, to help reach these poor, marginalised women and communities.

Edwardes Family – Church Planting
Graham and Sarah Edwardes and their two children, Sydney and Enzo have been living in Trieste, Italy, engaging in church planting.
After much prayer and in consultation with Pioneers of Australia the Edwardes family are looking to join a Pioneers International team in Ireland to continue church planting in a context with many similarities, yet without the need to continue language learning.
