We want to thank you so much for your very kind support which has gone a long way to giving many orphans a wonderful Christmas season.

Ministry in Ukraine in April – May 2017

2017-03-16T13:22:36+11:00March 16th, 2017|

I would appreciate your prayers very much for my upcoming visit to Latvia and Ukraine, where I will be checking on the orphans to see how well they have coped with the winter, and also conducting outreach seminars for the military, military high schools and basketball teams. In Kiev Ukraine I’ll have the privilege to minister at a Rugby Convention for the Ukrainian Rugby Union where I will have the opportunity to share Jesus with the sportsmen, managers, coaches and officials. This was arranged with the Ukrainian Deputy Minister of Sport on my last visit in October 2016. In Ukraine, [...]

God’s grace to three needy broken little boys – through your kind help

2016-12-20T15:04:44+11:00December 20th, 2016|

Little 4-year-old boy adopted in Latvia Our local managers and teams in Latvia and Ukraine, who do so much practical work to help the orphans in Eastern Europe, never cease to surprise me with their creativity and compassion. These teams of young people visit the orphanages regularly, providing concerts with spiritual value, and take them  all sorts of goods we’ve been able to provide—bedding, clothes, medicines, vitamins and supplements, dishwashers, washing machines, tumble dryers and educational requisites. They also let me know the needs that the children have. We have one team in Latvia and two in Ukraine that are [...]

Latvia/Ukraine February 2016

2016-10-25T15:06:28+11:00February 19th, 2016|

The programme in Latvia was amazing. It was freezing with snow and icy cold winds each day. In Latvia I had wonderful seminars in the military high schools out in the country where the attention and respect was marvellous – even from some students who were challenged by my warnings to stay away from corrupting influences. The needy people in church services were very encouraged. Two Men’s Fellowship meetings at Ogre Ogre Men's Breakfast were very well appreciated. The church services at the Golgotha Baptist Church (where the Military Chaplain General is the pastor), and the large Russian [...]

2016-10-25T15:06:44+11:00January 28th, 2016|

As we have said in our post for the Ukraine orphans really need urgent help for the Orphans of Latvia and Ukraine in their great need at this very cold time of the year in Ukraine and Latvia. The current temperatures average around -20C (-4F) horrendous, and many orphanages have been penalised for exceeding their electricity usage. We desperately need to meet those heating bills otherwise the power may be cut off. Please help us if you are able. See my seperate report for Ukraine. In Latvia the needs are the same, but the orphanages are more widely spread. The [...]

Children and the Hopelessness of Poverty in Latvia

2016-10-25T15:04:26+11:00December 2nd, 2015|

Almost seven years have passed since a devastating economic and financial crisis hit Latvia - a nation of ordinary people. The side effects of that crisis are still vivid and very painful for a lot of people. Needless to say the country has suffered much, but a country is made up of needy people, and the people still haven't recovered fully. Probably one of the most painful effects of 2008 financial and economic crisis was and still is, the unstoppable emigration of people. Unfortunately people we are seeing leave the country are the younger generation with young families and the [...]
