Bulgaria RE courseWe have just received news from Ventislaz and Zlatina Karavaltcheva (Bulgarian Orthodox missionaries who have worked previously in Georgia and Ukraine) that the first stage of an imprtant reseource for Bulgarian schools has been released.  This year nearly 2,000 first graders in Sofia and other parts of Bulgaria will have the opportunity to learn the basic concepts of Christianity as well as about the most significant religious holidays through this interactive teaching kit.  Using the lives of Biblical characters and saints as the starting point of each session pupils will learn about the Christian understanding of family, community, joy, courage, Easter, and much more. Eventually this will be a four year resource for teachers working in Bulgarian schools.  More information (in Bulgarian) at http://dveri.bg/xywkw
