dan and courtney randall/latvia

Today was a good day. Most of the morning was spent in a long and engaging conversation with a wonderful couple, Dan and Courtney Randall. The Randalls are missionaries to Latvia through the General Board of Global Ministries; Dan works with young adults, continuing education for clergy and laity in the annual conference there, leads Camp Wesley and has developed their website. Courtney guides the educational work with children and youth and leads a ministry at the Hope Center, which is a mission with teenager mothers who have been forced to leave orphanages because they have chosen not to have abortions; many (most) of them have endured great abuse. Dan and Courtney are graduates of Duke Divinity School (2007), and were here to spend time with Courtney's parents, Bill and Dulcy, who are active members of Providence. After coffee, Dan and Courtney spoke to a large lunch gathering, and their testimony was compelling. If you are reading this blog and want to personally connect with the mission of God in eastern Europe, I have posted a link to Dan and Courtney's work here.
Thank you, Dan and Courtney.
