CBM activities Initial contact was through Esperanto. The large response to advertising in 1990 led to the formation of an ecclesia in Sofia. More recently advertising and public preaching has not been possible, although a few e-mail contacts have been made and the ecclesia has grown through personal contact. There are regular pastoral visits and an annual Bible School.
