Latvia is a Baltic country in North-Eastern Europe. It has a population of 2 million people, and is ethnically mixed between Latvians and Russians. Our team will be serving a local church by helping with two VBS camps for kids, encouraging the local missionaries, sharing our friendship, and learning about God in a global context. We will be challenged to learn the Russian and the Latvian language, understand the history of the World Wars and how they have affected Latvia, tell our stories cross-culturally, and listen well to the stories we hear along the way. We will try out our gifts and talents in all areas of camp life, and encourage the team with daily Scriptures and prayer. Come and see what God is up to in this tiny part of the world. I promise, you will never be the same.
