Latvia – Ministry to the Military

2016-10-14T12:30:56+11:00June 24th, 2015|

The first day of seminars to the Latvian military was amazing. The weather was very cold but no snow, thank God. It is amazing that this miraculous door to the Baltic Troops has stayed open for so long – 5 years. On this first day we travelled 260 kms. On these long hops between bases we stop for refreshment breaks and to plan the strategy at the next base. I enjoyed three outreach seminars to the military police, the army headquarters and the air force base (that was a particularly excellent attendance). It’s not difficult in a crowd like that [...]

2013 July Newsletter Anastasia’s Story Anastasia Semyonova is 15.

The Disadvantaged Children of Kalkuni Children’s Home in Daugavpils, Latvia news from the fields - Latvia It was such a joy to see these forgotten Kalkuni Handicapped Children enjoying their first trip ever from their country area to the capital city, Riga. Last week we took a number of the handicapped children from the Kalkuni Children’s Home in Daugavpils to Riga. It was their prayer and dream to be able to do that. They had never been to capital, or to the zoo and or to the big Lido Buffet Restaurant. And who knows that might be their [...]

Kalkuni Children’s Home

2016-10-14T12:31:21+11:00June 7th, 2013|

This is the latest orphanage that we started supporting late last year - the Kalkuni Children’s Home in Daugavpils,Latvia, with 180 crippled and retarded children. The local government does not enough funds to help them and it seems that people’s attitude in general is that these children will never amount to much to contribute to the nation’s productivity anyways. They are so wrong. God loves these children and still has a plan for their lives. During the recent winter I went to check on their wellbeing. There was a flu epidemic in the area and the children were [...]
