Orphan Care in Latvia
Please pray for our mission team who left Saturday to serve 7 days in Latvia. While there, the team will be working with a local Children’s Center and a local Teen Center operated by Hope for Children (www.hope.lv). Currently the centers are overrun with more children than they are able to accommodate. These facilities open their doors to “at risk” children and youth and provide them hope for their future. Most of these children come from single parent homes and rely on the centers to provide what could be the only meal and hot shower they receive each day. During this trip the team will also be visiting a local orphanage in Liepaja and will visit local families in need of physical, emotional and spiritual support as our time permits.
This is our first ever mission trip to a European country and our first ever team sent from Graystone Walton! To follow their trip, check out their team blog as they post daily updates.
