Fridays are always bitter sweet for us at the BSM since usually we are leaving to go home. But this year we are excited to stay one more week to train the students in Biblical Counseling.  Today we finished up with the teachings and then spent an hour doing a role play where the students counseled Sherry. It is always fun to see what they come up with when asking questions. There were quite a few who we could tell have a real gifting in this area and we pray they will pursue more training.

After classes we had some appts. with students who wanted to talk and then we walked to a nearby restaurant for dinner.

I took a few pictures today of some of the students to share with you.

Auce and Vilnis - Married last year

Pastor Allans and Elizabete - Getting married in May

Selfies are popular everywhere

This is a Brother from Norway, who is in Latvia ministering to the gypsy people.  
With a Latvian translator, in the same room at the same time his message was being translated into Russian and English.  It is an interesting experience to hear all these languages at the same time. 

This is faith in action.  Our sweet Veronika is from Estonia and this brother is in charge of getting her wheel chair up and down 3 flights of stairs each day. Can you imagine being in the chair?  She has the sweetest personality and is always smiling and full of joy in spite of her handicap.  She is going to be working with orphanages in the future and hopes to foster a few children.  Meanwhile she is a tailor and sews wedding dresses for a living out of her apt.  

Tomorrow for the most part will be a day of rest so we hope to sleep in and then study. The only scheduled thing we have is an appt at 5. 

Thank you so much for our continued prayers. Pray specifically for us this week that the teaching will be anointed and that the homework assignments will equip and help the students practise what they are learning.  

Much love, 
PW and Sherry
