The last couple of days have passed quickly! We have been spending some time getting to know one another. We have visited the zoo, eaten dinner at the "big" Lido, Cili Pica and Double Coffee. We have been to Stockmans and the movies. We have ridden the tram and walked miles!!!! It is such an interesting place and as Americans we stand out.....I think we must smell American...he he! Some little boys yesterday laughed at us in McDonalds and asked us if we were American....we said yes and they said we know...your clothes! I don't think that they quiet understand why we have these two Latvian boys with us! Tonight, Peter and I took some time by ourselves and went to McDonalds. Dad and David stayed at the apartment and rested. It was nice to spend some time with Peter. I think he was feeling a little homesick. His spirits were better after dinner. This has to be hard for them as they leave their home and say goodbye to their culture. Please pray for all of us as we wait for our time here to pass. We found an English worship service for Sunday and we are going to attend. I have been listening to my praise music trying to fill my soul. I pray that God opens the door to minister here.....it is a dry and thirsty land. I have such a love for this country and pray that God will open doors for mission work here.
I love my boys and I thank God that He led us to them. Please pray for them by name as they make such a transition. I am a true believer in prayer. I know that I serve an amazing God who can move mountains. I am living proof of His work.....God is the God of the "fat chance"!!!
"O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee: my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is ; To see thy power and thy glory, so as I have seen thee in the sanctuary." Psalm 63: 1-2
