The funds raised by our thrift stores support Ministry Partners that provide God’s Word to those who might otherwise never know about our Savior, Jesus Christ. We are currently supporting the work of:
Bible League International – For over 75 years Bible League International has been equipping the local church with God’s Word worldwide. Today we serve in six regions: Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America, Middle East, and the U.S., equipping the under-resourced Church so they can reach their communities with the Gospel. Our ministry programs include our Project Philip evangelistic and discipleship Bible study; Bible-based Literacy; and Church Planter Training. Through these programs, people connect with Christ so their lives can be transformed by the power of the Holy Spirit.
World Mission – World Mission is a non-profit Christian organization founded in 1994 to support projects that took the gospel into third-world countries. Partnership with several Christian ministries included supporting projects such as Christian orphanages, youth ministries, counseling and rehabilitation centers and air transportation support around the world. Between 2002 and 2007, World Mission focused on the half of the world’s adult population that could not read, by recording and placing the Talking Bible into the heart languages, and then into the hands of the people. In 2007 World Mission first distributed a much smaller, more efficient, solar-powered Bible for oral learners, called The Treasure. By the end of the second year 2,968 Treasures went out. In 2014, we delivered the 100,000th Treasure.

International Gospel Outreach – Guided by faith in God and the desire that the name of His Son, Jesus Christ, be glorified, International Gospel Outreach is working through Bible League Bulgaria to provide Bibles, Bible study materials and training based on the eternal truths of God.
We long to be used by the Holy Spirit in the lives of those touched by the Word of God, helping to bring them to communion with Christ and His Church, and help them develop into faithful followers of Jesus. In order to reach tangible results we:
- Provide Bibles and Biblical support materials through a special program for distribution.
- Organize Bible studies – individual or in small family groups.
- Cooperate with churches and other organizations by providing them with Bibles, offering them training for founding new churches and having them participate in our special programs for Bible Study – “Philip” and “Andrew.”
- Strive to justify the confidence of donors, which is why we have developed a reliable system for collecting and reporting the results achieved by the grace of God.
Living Water International – Living Water International exists to demonstrate the love of God by helping communities acquire desperately needed clean water, and to experience “living water”—the gospel of Jesus Christ—which alone satisfies the deepest thirst.
Our concern is for whole people—physical and spiritual. As followers of Jesus, we know that he has the power to transform people, restore relationships, and heal factors that lead to poverty, hunger, and thirst. We work with local churches wherever we find them, identify ways we can be part of what God is already doing, and share the good news about Jesus in simple ways—like telling stories and asking questions.
We also lead hundreds of volunteers on mission trips each year, working with local communities, under the leadership of nationals, to implement water projects. It’s hard to know which lives are changed more—those “serving” or those “being served.” Our training programs in shallow well drilling, pump repair, and hygiene education have equipped thousands of volunteers and professionals in the basics of integrated water solutions since 1997.
