A church was formed in Riga in the interwar years, and a number continued through the years of communism, getting visits from workers as often as possible, so it was the area that was used as a base to reach out to the rest of the former USSR once there was liberty to do so.
During the interwar period, it seems that a number of the Eastern European countries -- Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Czechoslovakia -- worked together during those years, so the workers were moving back and forth from country to country, and would not all have been in any country at any one time. The workers were: Tom Alexson (born in Ukraine, professed in Manitoba); Jack Annand ( Victoria, Australia); Vasyl "Willie" Evanov (born in Ukraine, professed in North Dakota); Carl Leonhardt ( Saskatchewan); Willie MacDonald (Scotland/Saskatchewan); Frank Patrick ( Scotland); Bert Todhunter ( Scotland); and Tom Turner ( Scotland).
Convention is held in Latvia at Kegums, at the home of the Pihrag family, Latvians who emigrated to Saskatchewan and then returned after communism's fall. It is at that convention where most of the workers in the former USSR are together each year. There are a number of friends in Latvia..
