Apart from artists, Hari and Penka are Christian church leaders and missionaries to Muslim communities in Bulgaria.
They met while they both were in art school. They were married, and they each taught art professionally in high school. Hari accepted Christ as Lord and Saviour in 1988 when Bulgaria was still under communism. He began preaching in a small underground house church in Kardzhali, where he later became the pastor.
When the vision for the Trinity Story series was birthed, the message was that the artwork would not only complement the text but would also itself speak to the heart in the way only inspired artwork can.
