During the past week we have mainly been sitting in negotiations. Negotiations with the welfare department in Riga concerning the future of the Leontine Gorskas orphanage in Riga, which will close in the end of the year, and negotiations about the budgets for next year for the different operations in the Salvation Army in Latvia.
This week we had also had prayer 24 hours per day during seven days. I shall just start my shift at five o´clock.
Now it is Monday morning and we shall drive to the outpost Drusti in the northeastern part of Latvia. In Drusti we will have a Soldiers´enrolment of four new soldiers.
We will bring the flag for the enrolment, two boxes of new Songbooks (the old ones are worn out by all singing for many years) and a box with the new plastic bags with the Salvation Army shield which will be used for the food parcel distribution the coming winter. To the right you see the Commanding Officer in Drusti.
Next week we will go to a concert in Riga. It is my favorit male vocal group (next to the Norwegian group Mannssambandet of course) Ernie Haase and the Signature Sound. Here you can get a taste of how they sound:
Have a blessed week!
