We share with you the story of Maria Petrova on the occasion of a very pleasant and spiritual experience:

"From March 19 to 25 the annual Spring Youth Prayer week was held in Varna. From Saturday to Friday - every night - young people from both Varna churches gathered to socialize and spend time in prayer and conversation.

This week was a special time for all young people from Varna. The theme of the whole week was: "Jesus - The essence of our faith", written by Ty Gibson. We looked at eight fundamental beliefs of our faith, trying to understand the biblical basis for each of them.

On Saturday night we talked about the article entitled "The Building of Truth”. Every night, different groups of young people coordinated the debate. All participants had the opportunity to paint, in a creative way, the topic of the evening.

The topics that were discussed - Trinity, Great Controversy, God's law, the Sabbath, the Sanctuary, Death and Jesus’ Second Coming. There were many songs, comments, discussions.

Every night there was a special prayer communion, a time of sharing and praying to our God. At the end of the Sabbath, each Sabbath School group from the two churches received a special prayer journal which reminded them to pray for their friends and for problems of relatives; it also contained words of gratitude and praise to Jesus.

On Friday night we had a special dinner to celebrate the start of the Sabbath and to share the joy of all experiences during the week."
