Yes, I know, it`s 3 weeks already in 2014, but it`s only now that I`ve got myself together and written something! Hope it will be good! 🙂
Let`s start with goodbyes. What happened in 2013, that is worth remembering?
Firstly, I finished Baltic School of Ministry, that took most of the time until june. It was a great time, as I already said in some of the previous posts. During this time I was introduced to the school in Denmark, where I am now. After finishing the school, I had a great summer, spending a lot of time in my church, ministering in 3 summer camps, 2 children camps and one – not so much, 2 camps with YWAM (Youth With A Mission), one other kind of camp. I didn`t manage to find a work in the summer, so I had time for other things.
What else happened in 2013? In august I went to Denmark. How? Have a look here. Since then I`ve been in Denmark, except for a week in November, when I had a chance to go home to Latvia and to Estonia. To know. how that happened, look here, for video – here. Otherwise, as I said, I was in the school for most of the time. In the middle, I had a chance to go and minister every second weekend to Odense Baptistkirke and once to go and give a testimony in Stenum, all in Denmark. I spent lovely Christmas with my schoolmate Aron and his family and had a nice New Year`s Eve.
What am I expecting from 2014 and what am I looking forward to?
I will continue studies in Mariager Hojskole, finish that in june, and continue and go for Bachelor in Theology next year. Unfortunately I didn`t get the money for the mission`s trip, which is underway already, as some of the students are already in India and Zambia, but that makes me look even more forward to our cultural trip to Rome, that will happen in april. In february we will have vacations, and I will spend them with another schoolmate of mine, Tobias, so it has to be a fun week. In march we will record a cd in SWM (School of Worship and Music), in a professional studio (hopefully), and there will probably be also mine and Tobias`s song, called Zion. In the summer I`ll probably stay in Denmark to work and earn some money for the stay next year. It`s all in God`s arms, but prayers would still be really appreciated. And then another year in this great little town called Mariager.
I also started to play rugby last year, so it will be fun and I`m looking forward to the new season with Randers Raiders, the rugby club.
I am a big fan of sports, so there are some things to be awaited for in the new year. The biggest is FIFA World Cup in Brasil, in summer, and Winter Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia. I also look forward for the new F1 season, that should be full of surprises, World Championships in Ice-Hockey, Gagarin`s Cup in Ice-Hockey, latvian domestic seasons in football and basketball. I hope to see latvian tennis player Ernests Gulbis to enter the Top 10 in ATP rankings and other things 🙂
What has happened already this year?
Last weekend we had a worship conference in the school, called Worship Extended, and we, as SWM also were taking part in it, presenting two of our songs, my and Tobias`s Zion, and Retfaerdigjord (Righteous from danish) by other two students, and also presenting two of Arvid Asmussen`s songs together with author himself. The conference featured also other well known worship leaders in Denmark and also Norway, so it was a great event and I got quite a bit of inspiration from that.
Ok, I think, that`s it for now, until next time then! 🙂
