Teambuilding Games at “Generations”

On 16th of June Luthern Hour visited the Day care centre “Generations” in Riga. This is the place where children spend their time while their parents are in work or can’t take proper care of them. It is a great belssing that we have places like this, because children don’t have to stroll in the streets.
Most of these children haven’t seen anuthing positive in their lives, nobody says loving words to them, so their communication skills are very poor. We show them how to communicate to each others through a different games, how to work as a team.Paaudzes_06.2016

Movie Event for all Generations in “Generations”

The name of the centre really represents the work of this palce – there are several genarations together in this centre.This time we watched film “The bridge” – seniors and the young people all together.
Film represents warm and loving relationship between the father Vladimir and his son Lado. Will he save his son or the train full of siners?
After the movie we had some tea and a disscussion. This story made everyone think about our relationship with God. It is truly important during this fasting time.
Seniors of this centre will join our Bible Correspondence CoursePaaudzes.
