I trust you are well and enjoying God’s blessings at this time. Thank you for your wonderful prayers, gifts and all the “seeds” of love and compassion that you sow into the needy lives we reach and help, especially the orphans. Bless you so much for your kindness and your wonderful help. We do appreciate you and your faithful prayers.
I’ve just got back from a second visit to Latvia this year. I was there to check on the state of the orphans before the snows increase (it’s snowing already and very cold). I also went to teach 28 hours of lectures on Practical Evangelism at the School of Ministries that we’ve set up in this nation. I have the privilege to be on the board of this very special training center in Jelgava, Latvia where we are preparing students for public and personal ministry in a year long course. Some of the students are older orphans as well as local and foreign young people preparing for ministry. We are sponsoring some of them. I can see them ministering back into their respective orphanages in the near future.
The ministry went so well with the lectures in the School of Ministry as well as the Bible College in the large Word of Truth Church in Riga. I was accompanied by Ryan Ahern who is co pastor of the Staplehurst Evangelical Free Church in Kent UK. We ministered in the orphanages, prisons and to the poor churches and saw many needy people come to the Lord.
We also took in 20 Water Filter Systems for the orphanages we support there. These came heavily discounted from Perfect Water Systems in Queensland, Australia. These superior water filters will improve the orphans’ health as the water is terrible in this nation.
