Talsi Christian School is a testimony of Christian love around the world – we can keep the doors of TCS open because of prayers and donations of our brothers and sisters in Christ. We teach our students to be thankful for this and our students try to help school in whatever way they can.
For years our students and their parents have been making Christmas cards. People from churches in America purchase these cards in exchange for donations and it helps our school to continue our ministry.
In Latvia the first Sunday of October is Teacher’s day, a time when students say thank you to their teachers. This year the students of TCS surprised our teachers by inviting them to a concert at the church with the best acoustics in Latvia. It is a small countryside church near Talsi with a beautiful Altar Picture. Students had decorated the church with candles and flowers and the pastor who is the father of one of our students encouraged teachers’ hearts with wonderful message about Teachers mission on this Earth…
The 3rd of October was a big day for Talsi Christian School – we celebrated our 20th anniversary! We thanked God for His blessings at the church service at the Talsi Lutheran church and we had a great fellowship time with the alumni’s and teachers at TCS. One of the best moments of the night was when ex-students of TCS gave their testimonies, how God had changed their lives through Talsi Christian School. We are blessed to see the fruit of His Kingdom!
