Latvian translation of the Scriptures

I have learned recently that the Book of Mormon was only translated in Latvian perhaps 8 years ago. Elder Guido Senkans, the first person baptized in Latvia, assisted in the Translation. Just one year ago, the Doctrine & Covenants became available in Latvia.

It continues to amaze me to think about these members receiving, in their own language, the scriptures so recently. And they do love reading them.

Of course, they have had the Bible for many years, but what a blessing to have these additional scriptures available now.
