Taize Riga

15,000 young people praying together for peace and trust, that's what happened in Riga, Latvia, during the last days of 2016 and into the new year 2017. Young people, 18-35 years came from "all corners" of the earth to participate in the ecumenical Taizé "pilgrimage of trust" a real pilgrimage of trust. Together we have met, talked and prayed. We have come to know the world right here, right now.

Celebrating day of restored ministry

Together with the anniversary of the Proclamation Day of the Republic of Latvia, The Salvation Army in Latvia quietly celebrated its day of restored ministry. Now we count our years of service from 1990 when The Salvation Army restored its ministry here in Latvia, although already in 1923, just five years after the proclamation of independence of Latvia, the Army began to minister to people in Riga and Jelgava. In 1940, the Army’s ministry was prohibited in Latvia and Salvationists were left with hope and passionate prayer about restoration of the lost ministry. And now – we have had the privilege to again serve in Latvia for 26 years. Every year brings something new – both challenges and blessings. Looking back at this year, we see many, many blessings.

He offers prayers for everyone affected by the tragedy, and for 'President Obama and government officials who need to provide leadership in these days'.
