I want to thank you for your great friendship and your wonderful partnership in the gospel. You have been such a blessing and encouragement to us and more especially all the orphans we support in Eastern Europe. We couldn’t manage this vital work without your help. God bless you richly for your generosity. It has been an amazing privilege to minister the Word of God to the Military and Military Academies in Ukraine and see many hundreds come to Christ. As a result, the morale of the troops has grown and military family relationships have been healed. This increase in [...]
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 [...]
There have been some huge needs to meet in Latvia in the last few months of winter with heating bills, medicines and vitamins, and warm clothing. Although warmer weather is anticipated, temperatures are still around -3C and more snow is predicted this weekend. The Gardene Orphanage at Dobele, is extremely grateful that the final stage has been reached in the replacement of their much-needed heating system. It’s with Harvest Time Page 3 much respect that we think of people like Mother Teresa. She was a great servant of God. There are many others like Mother Teresa, who have sacrificed much [...]
Dave's Report from the latest of his trips and ministry in Latvia.
2013 July Australia Newsletter Anastasia’s Story Anastasia Semyonova is 15. She came to our centre in Riga, Latvia three years ago in desperate need of food and clothing, as well as to attend Children’s Church classes. She gave her life to Jesus but is very much an introvert. She lives with her grandmother, who does not have much interest in her. Anastasia is a very frail girl. She has fine bone fractures probably due to the lack of good nutrition or perhaps caused by a bone disease. Just recently she broke her leg and arrived on crutches to receive food. [...]
Greetings from Latvia at this time. This is my 10th time to conduct seminars to the Military of Latvia. The commanders asked me three years ago to come and do these seminars to an army under immense stress. I was asked, “Please prepare our troops for eternity and help them solve their family problems.” What a time I’ve had over the last three years bringing many into a vital relationship with Jesus and endeavoring to help them with their problems The local chaplains are working overtime doing the follow-up work. All this came about through supporting orphanages in this nation over [...]
David writes about his trips made in October and November of 2011. He visited Ukraine, Latvia, Israel, Sweden, South Africa and ministered in these countries.
I want to keep in touch in spite of all the travelling I've been doing lately. The Mission I had in Latvia was amazing. Thank you so much for your prayers. Hundreds of troops (commandos and navy seals) had the opportunity to receive Jesus. I've just concluded another intense mission in Eastern Europe, conducting outreach seminars to the military, navy and air force in Latvia, ministering at youth rallies, church services, sports outreaches, and checking on the orphanages we support in this very needy part of the world. So many people came to a vital faith in Jesus. My small [...]
I've just returned from a very cold and snowy Latvia addressing soldiers on their way to Iraq and Afghanistan to join the US, British and Australian forces there. I had an adventurous three days with a lot of traveling on icy roads to the various military bases across this Eastern European nation. The theme agreed on by the Chaplains and Military headquarters, was "Fulfilling your Destiny with Hope and Courage - using your special talents and abilities" with the accent on preparing for eternity with a vital faith in Jesus. I also focused on their need to give quality time [...]
