Association “Wings for Wheels” this year on August 5, organized an event called “Treasure Island”. Such a name was not chosen by chance, but in direct connection with the location, which was Dole Island, and also the topic of the day was ‘What are our treasures?’.
We had a total of 30 participants from different parts of Latvia. In the morning, there was a lecture about how big treasure is Jesus in our lives and how to protect the precious gift of salvation. After lunch, we went on an excursion, where we learned the ancient history of Dole Island and how people lived long time ago.
In the afternoon, we enjoyed relaxed atmosphere with interesting conversations, meeting people we had not seen for a long time, and simply enjoying the beautiful nature by the Daugava, Latvia’s largest river. Seeing people’s openness and interest, we formed a small group to discuss the things we had heard and listen to the testimonies of what God has done.
After dinner, hiding under the roof from the gently warm sprinkling rain, we watched the lit bonfire outside. It gave a special atmosphere to listen to the evening lecture as a challenge and a reminder, what are our real treasures for each day and how not to lose our greatest treasure – Jesus.
The purpose of the gathering was to meet people whom we had not seen for a long time, to meet our Bible online group and to make new friends who could be ministered and help them discover and understand what is the greatest treasure of life – Jesus.
Thanks to everyone who was involved in the implementation of this event!
May God richly bless you!
