Biss and I met in the center to catch a the subway for the neighborhood on the fringe of the city where Rafik and his family live.  The 40-minute trip gave he and I a chance to visit for a bit.  The meal with Rafik’s family was thoroughly enjoyable, and I believe profitable in many ways.  We discussed their circumstances, future, and some details from some of the Bible classes he teaches each week.  Despite their challenges, the family is doing well and maintaining wonderful dispositions.  The kids are adapting well to the Bulgarian culture and thriving spiritually.
