Maria Mitreva, daughter of my colleague in Bulgaria, came to live with us when she was 16. She graduated from Friends University where my husband Bruce was a professor. She stayed in Wichita, married and began a career with CCH, a company that writes tax software. Her mother joins her a part of each year. In addition to these two, we have also kept in touch with another colleague in Veliko Turnovo. We visited Bulgaria with a Methodist work team in the early 2000s and helped start reconstruction of a Methodist church in Turnovo.
