Greetings from Riga, Latvia!!
It has been a great blessing to spend our summer in Latvia. We have learned a tremendous amount in RKR training, additional seminars and working with a passionate group of young missionaries.
Bro Shutes and the RKR Training center team put an emphasis on practicing what is learned in the classroom. As a part of this, we were assigned an area to start a home group, or "house church". It was a practical training on how to assemble a team, and plant a church from the grass-roots level. After a time of prayer walking and fasting in an area that is bordered by embassies, God led us to many contacts from embassies across the world. We have sown many seeds, watered with prayer and God is giving the increase.
In the short few months we have been here God has moved mightily in our house church. We've had Spirit infillings, healings, and the Gifts of the Spirit in operation. God has spoken multiple times to us in words of prophesy and tongues and interpretation. During one church service Keirstin was healed miraculously of scoliosis and back pain!
One Sunday, while on the way to house church, two AIM missionaries invited a man to come to church. He came and was filled with the Holy Ghost that very service!
A delegate that attended was refilled with the Holy Ghost. After several nights of Bible study she was baptized in Jesus name in our bathtub!
Bro George Craft, retired veteran missionary to Europe, poured himself into the AIM team for two days with practical, yet profound insight from his years of experience.
We've spent the summer with a group of almost 30 young AIM missionaries. We've formed long lasting friendships with these ministers of this generation, they are equipped, anointed, committed to the call of God, and living what they believe. Truly God is raising up powerful laborers for His end time harvest!
We celebrated our dear son Monte's 3rd birthday. He had a fun birthday party with our AIM colleagues and little friends he's made while here. During the party we were able to connect our contacts with the missionaries who will be able to foster these relationships after our departure.
As the summer draws to a close, we look forward to the upcoming season. We leave here with great vision, and a plan for how to approach the field where God has called. As we go forward, we will be seeking Him for where that field will be. We will be traveling to Turkey with the Robinsons for two weeks to minister in many of the places the Apostle Paul labored. After, we will be in Paris, France with the Brochus for the Fall season. We thank you for every prayer, view on our social media pages, and your financial support. We are humbled by this opportunity to serve, and are giving it our all. May God richly bless you.
Ryan, Keirstin, Caroline, and Monte Paul
