Mīļā draudze!  Dear friends!

Priecīgus Ziemsvētkus—gan pirmos, gan otros, gan trešos!  Lai Kristus bērniņa mīlestība dzimst jūsu sirdīs un tur ieņem mājas vietu visam Jaunajam Gadam!

May your Christmas be joyous and bright with the light that the Christ Child brings into this world and into our lives.

Our video worship service is in both Latvian and English.  Thank-you to our Scripture readers Andrejs and Tālis Zommers.  For this service our organist Dr. Andris Āboliņš was joined by Laila Zommers on her violin.  Katriāna Zommers wasn’t able to come home for Christmas, but she sent us two songs from her home in New York.  To all our musicians, near and far—Thank-you and Paldies! 

Since we weren’t able to have our Candlelight service this year, we asked the Latvian school families to send some pictures of the children for the video.  Latvian school is meeting on Zoom, thanks to dedicated teachers, hardworking children and patient parents!  We wish them well.  Paldies to those, who sent the pictures you will see at the end of the video. 

As always—to Pauls Zommers and Andrejs Zommers and Ēriks Raisters—thank-you and thank-you and thank-you again for all you do! 

A final note—as we were filming this worship service on Monday evening it started to snow.  See if you can catch a glimpse of some snowflakes mixed with the raindrops in the exterior shots of the church.  It was a kind of blessing for this difficult year! 

May you feel the blessing—during this Christmas week-end and all through the New Year!  With virtual hugs and very real prayers–Prāv. Daira
