I hope that this week’s post will be slightly more interesting than its title! It seems to be video time at the moment, and so here are some insights into aspects of the work of The Salvation Army in Latvia which I hope you will find interesting.
Since the majority of my readers are either from the UK, Sweden and Latvia there is something in each language – also Russian too – but I am hoping that, even if you don’t understand the words you’ll find the pictures tell a story which you will find fascinating and maybe inspiring.
The first one is an advert for the musical, Jonah, which is being presented both here in Riga and Liepaja, so if you live in Latvia, you might want to join us at one of the venues this weekend. For those who can’t come, the video will give a glimpse into the work the children have been doing towards producing the musical.
The second, although the videos are not in any particular order, is a clip from the worship meeting at Daugavpils on Easter Sunday which features some hearty singing in Russian.
The third is from one of the Salvation Army corps (church) in Riga and is a short TV Report which was made about the work there. It is a Russian-speaking corps, but the TV channel is a Latvian one, so this is in Latvian
And finally, a couple of videos which are the same, but one is in Swedish and the other in English. These were put together by my boss in Sweden who came over for the visit of the Queen of Sweden. I’ve featured limited pictures of her visit on this blog, so here is a brief round up in pictures of that memorable occasion.
