The Bulgarian people-group is formed from the ancestral mixing of the Bulgar and Slavic peoples, but the country is also home to Macedonian, Millet, Turkic, and Roma people, with Greek, Slavic, Ottoman and Persian infuences. It has a rich heritage of traditional dance, music, costumes, and crafts – but society is broken. High poverty, divorce, abortion – which outnumbers live births – emigrating youth, and discrimination of minorities plague the country. In the 1990s, an infux of foreign-funding created dependency among evangelical churches and a general perception that evangelicals buy converts – now diluting eforts to share the Gospel. Many of the 2% who pledge allegiance to the Church do not practise any real faith. The majority Christians are mostly nominal in their faith and know little of the Bible and the way of salvation.
