Latvian Evangelical alliance lv-lv Invitation to Prayer Days May 13 and 14 Dear brother and sister,In the Bible life is described as a journey. How we live life is referred to as our walks. A few months ago I had a deep conversation with a friend who has attended almost every Prayer Days since 1999. Even though he has benefited every time, he still remembers the very first Prayer Days which took place at the Belarus Hotel in Jurmala. What happened there? How did we pray? Did God break through in a special way?I remember inviting 70 pastors and was surprised when 107 showed up. We didn't have a special speaker or a worship team. We sang mostly acapela and songs were selected spontaneously by the participants. We sat in a big circle, each with Bibles in hand. Each session focused on personal and interpersonal prayer. We did have one presentation regarding Hope '99, but no preaching or teaching. With joy I watched barriers break down between Lutherans, Baptists, Salvation Army, Adventists, Pentecostals...between older and younger pastors...between Latvians and Mon, 22 Apr 2013 00:00:00 EEST Ministry ”RETURN” invites!

Recently I heard a radio interview on developments in Europe. The two concerns mentioned most were: 1. The continuing financial and economic malaise and the social unrest arising because of that. 2. The increasing indifference toward others because or what you can call: lack of ‘neighbourliness’. Not very surprising, I guess. The GA as such was a good exercise in neighbourliness, bringing together over 130 people from 36 nations.This Newsletter brings you a small report, reasons to be thankful to the Lord and to pray for His continuing help.Niek TramperGeneral Secretary of EEAEEA Newsletter PDF format.

Growing up I knew that I would love to play violin professionally in church and other orchestras. But together with my passion for music I also had a dream to deepen my knowledge in theology. This led me to pursue education abroad. Little did I imagine that God would make this reality happen by allowing me to be fully supported while I attended Biola University in Southern California through the generous support of David and Shirley Karnes and others through Bridge Builders International. It was in the summer of 2005 that the late Dr. Clyde Cook, former president of Biola University, visited my country (at the invitation of BBI) and God since then has brought me through an incredible journey of faith in which I have learned that He did not bring Mon, 16 May 2011 00:00:00 EEST ”Save Latvia” Social Project Social Project ”Save Latvia” On the web since February 23, 2011 Fri, 13 May 2011 00:00:00 EEST ”Emotional Traps”, women\'s Ministry Church New Generation and Pastor Olga Ledyaev inviting you to the Seminar of women\'s Ministry ”Emotional Traps” on Saturday, May 14, at 11 00 am, Irlavas street 7, Fri, 13 May 2011 00:00:00 EEST CHRIST IS RISEN!

The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like). There are many variations of passages of Lorem Ipsum available, but the majority have suffered alteration in some form, by injected humour, or randomised words which don't look even slightly believable. If you are going to use a passage of Lorem Ipsum, you need to be sure there isn't anything embarrassing hidden in the middle of text. All the Lorem Ipsum generators on t Thu, 10 Mar 2011 00:00:00 EET
