Dispatch from Rīga



Our home in Rīga




We moved into our home at 3 Anglikānu iela in Rīga, Latvia a little over a month ago, but right now I’m back in Russia! As a theological educator for our mission region my work takes me here and there–wherever we are invited to help strengthen Lutheran pastors in their work. Our letter this month looks at this "Shuttle Theology" and about the arrival of our new colleague in theological education in the region. Click the link below for that news along with our prayer requests for this month and an unusual visit to a nearby library.

We’re sending this letter out just after the news that flights from Europe to the US have been cancelled due to the Covid-19 virus’s spread. You can read about the interview Connie had concerning the virus on the local news in our letter as well. Right now, travel is the one thing most affected so that the work of some of our colleagues is curtailed. Please join us in asking God to keep all His people safe and that our work may resume before long.



Yours in Christ,
Chuck & Connie Cortright
