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 mostly through doing Fusion camps and found themselves in harmony with Josiah Venture’s zeal for discipleship, leadership training, and outreach, and joined JV in 2012. They both serve in the local youth ministry, David looks after the national Fusion ministry and Ieva looks after Arturs.
