Activity “Protect your mind, protect your heart.” in Riga

On 20th of March Lutheran Hour went to the day care center “Hand in hand”.
This time we made the hats together with the children from this Center. Children had a voting – witch hat is the most beautiful. So Olga and Girts were winners this time.
The topic we discussed this time was – “Protect your mind,protect your heart.”
We would like to thank all the workers of this center, they really serve God through this job!
May our Lord bless them!
It is great to know – even thou these kids are unwanted in their families, they are loved by the workers of this center.

NEW ETS Seminar “Congregation as Family” in Baldone

On the Palm Sunday Lutheran Hour went to Baldone Lutheran church to present our ETS seminar “Congregation as Family”.
This time everyone was invited to evaluate their congregations relations – do we really know each other, do we know other members of our congregation? Do we know the names of other people in our church?  Do we know what other perishers like or dislike, are they happy or facing some problems?
Each congregation should be a place where each member  support others and gets a support! A congregation should be a second family for its’ members! But – as it is in the family, you should also put some effort to make it all work. Latvians are often really shy, so it is hard for us to step out from our comfort zone and to become a shoulder that others can lean on. So may God help us!

Family Sports Event in Gulbene

On 26th of March Lutheran Hour went to Gulbene, this time we visited the Social Department of Gulbene town.
There were 12 families gathered together. We were accompanied by the pastor of Gulbene Lutheran church Ilgvars Matiss.
We played different games and enjoyed this ti  me together. You don’t have to do anything special or spend a lot of money to have a quality time and some fun with your family – you just have to be together! This afternoon reminded us of this simple truth!
Thank you Lord for each family!

“Protect your thoughts,protect your head”

On February 6  Lutheran Hour went to the children Day Care Center “Heart light”. This is the place where children can go and spend their free time after the school-so they don’t have to be home IMG_20150206_155557alone.
This time there were 15 kids.Our theme this time was “Protect your thoughts,protect your head”. The children could remember all the things we talked about, we decided to decorate some hats together. Afterwards kids were able to vote and decide which hat is the most beautiful and gets the winning prize.
Then we had a little meal. Actually-the time spent together, conversations-these are the things that  children expect to receive from their parents. Unfortunately, the parents often are too busy or just unwilling  to see this.
So thank you Lord for each and every volunteer who can spend some time together with these kids!
