About us

Who We Are

The Latvian Angel Project is mission of Liberty Hill Church in Canton, Georgia.  We work with other churches and individuals around the globe to be the hands and feet of Christ to the orphans of Latvia.  No member of our ministry is paid.  It is strictly volunteer-led.  Our funding comes from donations made by individuals and churches.  Anyone who has a heart for the orphans of Latvia can become a part of the Latvian Angel Project by doing any of a number of things, including:

  1. Become a Sponsor.
  2. Become a Prayer Partner.
  3. Donate funds to help cover the cost of the shipping of Christmas gifts and the cost of the mission trip, Bibles, devotionals, etc.  Make checks payable to "Liberty Hill UMC" (write "Latvian Angel Project" on the memo line) and mail to Latvian Angel Project c/o Liberty Hill Church, 141 Railroad Street, Suite 106-B, Canton, GA 30114.  
  4. Volunteer to help at one of our fundraisers.
  5. Join our mission team and go spend time with the kids, the directors, the social workers and the down and out in Latvia.  It's a trip you'll never forget!
  6. Be creative, let us know how you can help!
How we began….

In the fall of 2005, Lorraine Rose, of Woodstock, GA looked at her two precious sons, recently adopted from Latvia, and wondered how they might help their orphan friends who were left behind. Together, they prayerfully devised the Latvian Angel Project. They then recruited the first American sponsors for their friends living at Naujenes Bernu Nams (Naujenes Children's Home), making it possible for each child at that orphanage to receive some small Christmas gifts.  By the fall of 2006, the ministry had more sponsors than children and was blessed to be able to add an additional orphanage to the list!  We have since added three more orphanages to the roster (bringing the total to more than 170 children), in addition to three day centers, a hostel and a group of foster families.

We hope to continue adding orphanages to this mission, so we’re always seeking additional sponsors.  Please contact us if you or your church is interested in participating in our sponsor program.
