Today we attended Mathews Church. With the help of interpreters, we were able to follow along for the most part. The teachings were mainly out of the book of Mathew and 1 Peter among other supporting scriptures. The message today reminded us that our cornerstone should be Christ alone and not the things of this world. The Latvian word for cornerstone is “Stūrakmenis”. There were several songs, many of which were familiar to us albeit in Latvian. It was interesting to see the similarities and differences in our style of worship.
We had a planning meeting after church. We spent time going over the schedule and getting to know one another. Everyone seemed to hit it off and we have a sense that this is going to be awesome camp!
Later that evening, the men got together and loaded the supplies for camp. Several of the guys and one gal stuck around to throw the football and discuss sports. Tomorrow we get up early and head to camp.
