Brenton & Debbie Driscoll

Bulgaria

Bio

PRESENT MINISTRY

The couple received approval to be missionary interns to Bulgaria and got married in 2019. They are currently seeking more prayer and financial partners for their two-year endeavor with hopes of moving to Bulgaria this summer, in order to have their first child there. Their little baby boy is due in July 2020. The Driscolls cannot wait to see all that God is going to do to bring glory to His name in Bulgaria and around the world.

CONVERSION

Born to a missionary family in Japan, Brenton grew up with a mission’s vision and was active in his parents’ ministry, inviting school friends to church and seeing many of them hear the gospel for the first time.

Growing up in Bulgaria, Debbie actively participated in her parents’ (the Trifonovs) church through youth ministry, teaching younger children, and ministering through music.

EARLY MINISTRY

While attending Welch College, the couple was involved in the FWB church plant in Gallatin, Tennessee—Immanuel FWB Church. Both participated in different ministries at Immanuel (such as music ministry, set up team, welcome team, etc.) during services each week. Although the Driscolls spend most of their time raising support on the road these days, they miss seeing their church family in Gallatin, but are thankful to call it “home.”

HOME CHURCH

Brenton—Satsunae Lighthouse Christ Church, Japan
Debbie—New Life FWB Church, Varna, Bulgaria; Immanuel FWB Church, Gallatin, Tennessee

Prayer Requests

There are a lot of big transitions happening in our lives right now:

  • we arrived in Shumen, Bulgaria at the beginning of June
  • we welcomed our first child into our family in July
  • Brenton began language study

In the midst of all of these big events and transitions, we thank God for all of you who prayerfully and financially support us. We cherish your friendship and cannot wait to see how the Lord uses all of us for His Kingdom!

 

We would love it if you prayed for the following needs:

  • Please pray for us as we continue to transition to life here in Shumen!
  • Pray for us as we work alongside missionaries Josh and Lydia Provow in Shumen. Pray specifically for unity, as well as cohesion to minister to the Bulgarian people here who do not know the LORD.
  • Pray for Brenton as he learns Bulgarian.
  • Pray for the outreach events we have planned this Christmas season, many of which are currently up in the air due to COVID restrictions.
  • Pray that God would guide us and equip us to do His work among the people in Bulgaria.
