Opening of Sunday School Year in Sloka

On Sunday of harvest festival Lutheran Hour went to congregation of Sloka. Together with kids from Sunday school “Miracle” we opened the new season of the Sunday school.sloka
A lot of children were attending Sunday school for the first time. So in the beginning children were listening to the story of Creation.Children could also create a little “world” of candies and sweets! We were trying different experiments while listening to the Bible stories about Elya and Baal.On the conclusion of this beautiful day we had a little meal.
So we hope that after this Sunday school season children will be able to tell some Bible stories to their friends who are not yet familiar with God’s word.
Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”(Matt. 19:14)

Amazing sports morning in Rezekne

On 25th of October Lutheran Hour went to the Centre of Social service for children in Rezekne. So we had an amazing sports morning there together with the inhabitants of this centre!
This centre is a place where children live in those cases when their parents – for a different reasons – can’t take care of them. The age of these kids – from 2 to 18 years.
No matter the difficulties these children have already faced, this sports morning was fun and noisy! It was  heart – warming to see  how the oldest kids were taking care of young ones.
Rezekne
Our task is to follow God’s order – love your neighbor a you love yourself. So it is our responsibility not to forget these kids and to take care of them.
Dear Lord, protect each child who can not grow up in the family! Amen!

September 3,the building of Lutheran Hour was filled with children’s laughter, it was a great joy all over the house! Together with youngsters from the Gymnasts of the Streets children were able to see some tricks and to try something like that on their own! One of the gymnasts Marcis witnessed to all how he returned to God and how he builds his relationships with Jesus.
Afterwards everyone enjoyed some pizza.
This afternoon was truly amazing for everyone who was present, but especially for the children from the Day centers “Generations” and ” The Light of the Heart”

Everyone was smiling-and that is a great gift-a true smile from the child!
Thank you ,Lord, for your love and for these children! Amen!
