Carelinks | Women and Children’s Camp, Latvia
This was a great success and was held at the housing project in northern Latvia. It was great for city folk to get out into the countryside to learn and respond to the Gospel.
“I recently organized a children's camp in the housing project in Northeastern Latvia for four days where we recorded three new Bible songs in Latvian which were written especially for the occasion with the help of Sis Anna Ryder from the UK. Four whole families from my Mums and Toddlers group came from Riga, as well as many of the local children. Recently baptized Bro Indars was there with his wife, Silvia, and their lovely little daughter. Each day we had exercises and activities for the kids which were themed around the Bible verse for the day. This year we also visited local farmers who kindly showed us how they milk the cows, and even let the children drink warm, frothy fresh milk which the city children loved! We also visited a sheep farm, had rides on a horse and cart, went down the river on a barge and visited the local ice cream factory.
The children loved listening to Bible stories in the evening and playing with each other all day long in the fresh country air. There was also opportunity for some good conversation about more serious Bible matters - please pray that it will bring forth fruit. I'm really hoping that the three unbaptized but interested Mums will want to get more serious about their faith. Everyone really enjoyed the trip and are looking forward to next camp, God willing. Thank you for your prayers!”
