Making disciples in Latvia

Among other things, this spiritual hunger was manifest in an initial responsiveness to familiar Western evangelical missionary methods, such as Billy Graham-style crusades and “first contact” gospel presentations.

A new approach was needed – one that could arise organically from Latvians themselves.
