Baiba & Aleksandrs Kenigsvalde
When Baiba was 15, she became a believer through the local youth group. Two years later, she joined a local church youth leader team and was introduced to Josiah Venture through a missionary serving with JV. She discipled young girls who are now discipling other girls. After graduating from high school, she went to 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 Josiah Venture. She moved to a town called Limbaži and started serving in a local church youth ministry. There she also met Aleksandrs and, in September 2018, they got married. They are leading a local church youth ministry together and they have a desire to empower youth to be disciples who make disciples.
