When Baiba was 17, she joined a local church youth leader team and was introduced to Josiah Venture through a missionary serving with JV. For two years, she discipled young girls who are now discipling other girls. After graduating from high school, she went to Boodenseehof Bible School in Germany and then spent a year in England, where she discipled her sister and had the privilege of leading others to Christ. While serving as a summer intern in Latvia with Josiah Venture in 2016, her heart was struck by the brokenness of the youth and their hunger for love. In the fall of 2016, Baiba joined JV and now is actively involved in local church youth ministry. She has a desire to empower youth to be disciples who make disciples.
