Camps, Outreach, and More!

At Eagle’s Wings, we are happy to report that the pandemic has not diminished our activities and time spent together. The first months of 2022 have been very full, with various events, both one-off and weekly. All our youth are invited to participate in weekly activities, during which they enjoy fellowship and strengthen their relationships with God.

The Dutch Outreach ministry project took place the first week of January. We visited homes in teams, handing out food baskets to needy families and widows. Along with the baskets, the individuals served experienced joy, a sense of community, heartfelt prayers, and the hope of the gospel. It was a very special week and involved many young people who wanted to help, visit, and talk about God. The families they visited had something to give in return, through their stories, hospitality, smiles, and tears. It also provided a joyful opportunity to be together, as so many of our activities have had to take place online due to Covid.

Discipleship, Mentoring, and Bible Study

In January we also completed the first part of “Exodus,” our discipleship/mentoring course. The second part (10 weeks) has now begun and includes weekly one-on-one mentoring meetings. This is the second year we’ve done “Exodus.” Our young people want to be together after so much Covid separation. Most of them have not missed one meeting! Several who completed the course last year are doing it again. We are deeply encouraged by their enthusiasm.  

Bible Study takes place every Monday night –these are still done remotely on Zoom, which allows young people from different cities to join in. We read together, discuss the Scripture, and pray, always emphasizing the importance of a personal relationship with God. It is a pleasure to see their active participation and eager attention to studying the Bible. Our youth group is called “Re-start.” We meet on Fridays via Zoom, with dozens of participants. An important topic is discussed each week, sometimes with a guest speaker. Covid restrictions in Latvia have been very strict, for a very long time. These events are important for fellowship and encouragement. So, we also include game nights and movie nights online, where we watch a Christian film, talk, laugh, and have fun.

As the Pandemic eases, we very much hope that our Worship Camp will take place this year. Two years in a row it had to be canceled. Please pray that we can meet in person this March – praising God and experiencing his goodness together!
