"God if you exist..."
INGUNA’S PERSONAL TESTIMONY
In June of 1990, I put my 18 month-old daughter, Elina, in bed as a completely healthy child. The next morning she woke up partially paralyzed on her left side. The doctors diagnosed her with a brain tumor and warned that Elina would most likely die during the surgery.
My husband, Maris and I were raised in a communist, atheistic society. Even as a non-believer, I prayed and asked, “God, if you exist and if you are real, please save Elina’s life and I’ll serve you!”
Elina survived the surgery but the doctors said that by age six, she would die, the tumor was malignant.
HOPE IN THE MIDST OF HOPELESNESS
We lived without hope for the future. In 1991, American missionaries with International Crusades came to Latvia and witnessed to me about Jesus. I was invited to Talsi Baptist Church. I went and began to learn about what it means to be a Christian and in 1992 I received Jesus in my heart. God told me that Elina would not die at the age of six.
Because Elina was physically handicapped, she would not be able to go to public school. God put a dream in my heart about a Christian school that would not only teach about Christ, but would be a school where physically handicapped children would be included. God opened my eyes to see that many children need help and a Christian school would meet their needs.
VISION OF A CHRISTIAN SCHOOL
I prayed for this situation, putting myself, my family, my dream, and our future in God’s hands. God worked a miracle in the life of our family. Maris became a Christian in America when we all went there for me to study for one year to learn about opening and operating a Christian School. He now even pastors a little country church in Latvia. God changed our lives from godless atheists to willing servants through Talsi Christian School.
Because God answered my prayer, I kept my promise to him. In 1995 we opened Talsi Christian School with grades 1-4. Since that time God has grown the school to over 290 students in grades 1-12.
