David & Ieva Kingdon
Arturs & Viktorija
David first came to Latvia in 2003 to work with international students and was shocked by their history and how many of his Latvian friends came from broken families. He became burdened for Latvian teenagers to encounter Jesus. This led him to spend two years in the east of Latvia before moving to the west coast to Grobiņa to work with the youth ministry team of a Baptist church. Ieva was also on this team. After being co-workers for two years, they worked even closer together for a year and got married the next. They encountered Josiah Venture (JV) mostly through doing JV Fusion camps and found themselves in harmony with Josiah Venture’s zeal for discipleship, leadership training, and outreach, and joined JV in 2012. David serves in the local youth ministry and directs the national Fusion ministry. Ieva has served in the local ministry but is now mainly focused on looking after their children, Arturs and Viktorija.
