Every first Tuesday of the month we started to have a meal while sitting around the big table. Here you see Taylor and me at the beginning of the evening. It is a nice way to welcome the women and it feels homely. We don’t only eat together, but have also talks with them. This evening we had a deep conversation with one of the women who does not want to use drugs anymore and wants to start a new life. We listened to her, we could give her advice, shared about the hope in Jesus and we prayed for her. We hope and pray she is ready to take the next step to go for a detox program.

Also Taylor and me had a meeting with a chaplain of a prison around 30 minutes outside of Riga. We shared together our hearts and were brainstorming how we can partner together in walking alongside the women in prison. It was such a good time and we will have a meeting in the prison next time to work out more details!
