These were the last days of Summer holidays for children. So we followed the Jesus’ call and went to visit children. This time Lutheran Hour Latvia went to the day care centre for children “Hand in hand”. We were welcomed by the smiling children of all ages.
The workers of this centre were preparing some food for the winter-they were pickling the cucumbers.Meanwhile kids had an opportunity to build some towers from candies and sweets, to make some presents for their friends and to perform some experiments. Our topic this time was “The meaning of the prayers”. Children heard the story about Elaya- how he prayed to God and how God responded to his prayers.
A lot of these kids haven’t seen their friends for a long time, so they made a little presents for their friends to make the reunion more exciting!
This day care center is a special place for the local children; each day there ar about 40 children spending time in this centre.They can have some meals there, they have a place to do their homeworks and there are also always some person who can listen to them if they want to talk about their problems. We thank God for each and every person who spend time with these kids!

In the beginning of August Lutheran Hour went to Jekabpils. This time we were visiting the summer camp of Krustpils congregation.
There were also pastor Evalds Berzins and bishop Einars Alpe participating in this event.
After the service people gathered together for the that we presented. There were 30 people attending this seminar, there were seniors and young people among them.
Everybody admitted that we have a poor communication in our congregations, and that leads to alienation.
But there are also a good news – everyone was ready to change something in their attitude to improve the environment in their congregation. It is a truly important step if we want to feel as a family in our congregation.We must share Christ’s love at first among christians ourselves!

On 28th of July Lutheran Hour went to Baldone Church to show the movie “Adam’s Apples”.
Candles, warm tea, the rain outside – it all created a truly cosy atmosphere! We would like to thank everyone who came to this event – there were more than 70 people gathered together! (most of them not from congeregation)
This is a Christian movie with a little bit of dark humor, but it really made everyone think.The language of the film is universal, everyone can understand the idea and rethink it for a long time.
Thank You, Lord, for Your love!

This seminar is about the mission – we should follow the order from Jesus and do the mission work. We should show the Christ’s love to the people that surrounds us. Then everyuone who enters the church will feel Jesus love for all people.

On 3 of July Lutheran Hour went to Saulkrasti Lutheran Congregation to meet the children of this congregation. It was the Pandamania time!
This time it was the camp of the congregation. And what could be better than the activities for kids which were not only fun and entertaining, but children could also learn God’s word.
It is always a great pleasure to see the joy in the children’s eyes, it always reminds us that we can learn from children how to do things with great love!
