We’ve been in Wittenberg…



Wittenberg’s Marktplatz and the Town Church where Luther preached



We were in Germany filling in at the Old Latin School in Lutherstadt Wittenberg for about two weeks in the shadow of the Town Church where Luther preached during the Reformation; read about our time there and about our visit with Deaconess Kim Bueltmann in nearby Leipzig.

Now that we are back in Riga, Latvia we are busy preparing for fall. Part of that includes launching a website for our curriculum project. The site tells about the project and about a free, online course, Introduction to Theology, that we are offering to prospective students for the Bachelor of Theology program being created in partnership with the Riga Luther Academy. Read more about it in our letter. You can check the website out at:
