The instruction and training will be Christ-centered.
Among the basic life skills that will be taught include healthy living, gardening and canning. Basic financial skills like budgeting, and the management of checking and savings accounts will be covered.

5-day Art Camps – Bulgaria Christ Resurrection Ministries | In Progress
Every summer Hari and Penka Atanasov, former art teachers, bring the love of Christ to children in mountain villages of Bulgaria by conducting 5-day art camps. The children in these impoverished communities have no recreational opportunities at all. And most villagers know nothing about the Bible, the gospel, or God’s love for them. Local officials welcome the art camps and many families send their children. This opens the doors for follow-up visits where the gospel is explained. The cost for an art camp—supplies, food, transportation—comes to about $40 a child. About 60 to 80 children are impacted each summer.
