Dear Friends and Family,

Advent and Christmas greetings from Central Europe.

This Advent Newsletter tells of Christ’s ministry on two fronts: Here in Central Europe (Rīga Luther Academy and Prague) but also through my military service as a Ministry to the Armed Forces chaplain, and activation that begins on 1 December.

With love and blessings this Christmastide,

Pastor John & Melinda with Sophia, Marie, Anna and Luca
