In 1991, Latvia became independent from the Soviet Union. Since then, Latvia has been trying to transition from their previous government-operated economy. The results are thousands of orphaned children, many of whom are victims of abuse and/or the financial situation in Latvia.
Please join WCSG in serving children and families of the Day Center near the Naval Port in Liepaja, Latvia alongside the Orphan Outreach team. This team will spend quality time building relationships and sharing the love of Christ through word and deed, while also ministering to the staff and local families.
This trip is from Saturday, October 20, 2018 to Sunday, October 28, 2018.
Please fill out the pre-application form found here! The pre-application is due April 23.

If you are not selected after the 2nd application, the $100 deposit will be refunded back to you. However, if you back out after submitting the deposit and have been selected, the $100 deposit is non-refundable.
