About Us

Shawn & Natalie

We have been serving in Bulgaria for over two decades, and living here full time since 2015. Whether in the city or in the village, you will find us living life and pointing people toward Jesus. We spend a lot of time working with orphans and those who care for them, adoptive families, homeless and underprivileged people. Shawn also serves in student ministry and teaches and serves on the Board of Directors of Sofia Christian Academy, an English-speaking school serving the missionary community in Sofia. 

We recognize that we are just one small part of the ministry God has us working on in Bulgaria. People just like you who support us through prayer, encouragement and financial gifts are just as vital to advancing God’s Kingdom in Bulgaria, and we do not take that for granted. Thank you so much for joining with us!

Much of our ‘official’ work in Bulgaria happens through our Bulgarian non-profit, the BigHouse Foundation. If you would like to donate directly to help with our work with orphans and community outreach and the expenses we incur, you can do that here (link).

In His Name,
Shawn and Natalie

P.S. We also support ourselves through our photography/artwork by offering prints, calendars and other products(sales happen periodically, so you’ll have to keep up with us!). Click here to see some of our photography!
