The greatest disease in the West today

October 14th, 2014|

That's a great quote of Mother Teresa “The greatest disease in the West today is not TB or leprosy; it is being unwanted, unloved, and uncared for. We can cure physical diseases with medicine, but the only cure for loneliness, despair, and hopelessness is love. There are many in the world who are dying for a piece of bread but there are many more dying for a little love. The poverty in the West is a different kind of poverty -- it is not only a poverty of loneliness but also of spirituality. There's a hunger for love, [...]

Meet Veronika

October 13th, 2014|

Here is our little Nica. Meet Veronika: a child abandoned by an alcoholic mother she barely knew and left in the care of her ailing grandmother. Maternal love was an alien feeling for her. She often felt worthless and a burden to everyone;that no one cared or loved her.  She was six years old when her grandmother started bringing her to the church for feeding. She was such a pretty girl. We would lovingly call her a ‘talking doll’. Her grandmother made use of Nica to acquire food, clothing and anything else on offer. When Nica was seven, her grandmother died and she was taken in by theelderly neighbors. A week later Nica’s mother, Tatiana, ended [...]

Hello, this is Almonds

April 8th, 2014|

This is Almonds. He is  part of a family of eleven children. They live in the rundown, ugly, old former movie theater in one of the remote areas of Riga. The building is so rotten and old that when they went in as a Family to live no one really cared.

However the Family had stuck together and the love one another. Two of the older boys had develop mid-stage schizophrenia. Most of [...]

Ukraine Orphans Needs during these Revolutionary times March 2014

March 27th, 2014|

From my manager, Oleg Vasilchuk in Odessa (Where we support 10 Orphanages, the Homeless Children’s Centre, a Youth Sports Club and the New Church Oleg pioneered 3 years ago for the street kids) Political conflicts are the nightmare to begin with, but political conflicts of Ukraine scale are far worse than any of the nightmares. We have gone through some of the darkest and hardest times - times of brutal violence and devastating pain. Yet we fear that it is not yet over, we do foresee more hardships ahead. Over hundred people were killed already by the government forces, most [...]

Health Day

February 27th, 2014|

As you know, we are developing work of the ministry among the children from the unfortunate Families. Main goal is obvious - for the gospel to be preached to children who came from poor families in Riga, Latvia. Many of those children were not even taught the hygienic basics or simply how to care about their growing bodies. That's why we decided to make a big "health day" event for them. During that day children and teenagers were simple introduced and taught - how to take care of the bodies basic hygienic , they were taught how to use hygienic [...]
