Weekly review from my point of view.
Last Sunday we celebrated the Independence Day in Latvia. In the Sunday Morning Service in Riga First Corps we were gathered around the Latvian map.
We were praying for Latvia. We could all draw our hand on a paper ang put our "hands" on the map in prayer. In the end of the meeting we sang the Latvian National Hymn "God Bless Latvia" and after that we had a fellowship dinner.
During the week we have had a visit from a group from "Humanitarian Aid" in Västerås, Sweden. They are running a EU-project named "Equip" with the purpose to help people into the Labour Market.
The group, with their leader Arne Nordberg, also brought a truck of clothes and things which they unloaded in our Central Storage in Riga. During the week the group visited the Headquarters, to get information about The Salvation Army in Riga, our Soup Kitchen in Iecava, the wednesday evening meeting in Riga Second Corps and the Social Center in Riga. Here you can see Arne, together with Rut and Peter, after the morning devotion at Headquarters.
During the week we have also been working with preparations for the different Christmas activities. Christmas dinner for all our staff in Latvia, preparations for the Christmas Kettle activities and much more.
By the way, this week our oldest son turned 42 years old. It is unbelievable that we, being that young, can have that old children.
But now, it is soon time for another week...
I pray that it will be a blessed week for you.
