Every turn of a new season brings a reflective mood in my soul. I can’t believe that winter is on its way, and the leaves have all turned their glorious colour, seemingly willing to shine one last time in the glimmering autumn sun for our enjoyment.
While the end of this summer brought about the completion of a DECADE of ministry here in Scotland for us, the autumn has given us new challenges and vision for embarking on another 10 years of ministry and preaching the gospel in Scotland and Europe.
In looking at what scriptures say about seasons, I’m encouraged, challenged and admonished by both of these.
Ecclesiastes 3:1 esv “For everything, there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven.”
1 Timothy 4:2 esv “preach the word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke and exhort, with complete patience and teaching.”
Here are a few highlights of ministry here in Scotland from this past season:
A decade of ministry in Scotland!
on this late August day, we celebrated 10 years in Scotland by serving and worshiping with Centrepoint Church, Edinburgh and Mosaic Edinburgh.
Salvation for Hannah’s Friend!
one of Hannah’s friends, 16 yr old K gave her life to Jesus, and we are baptizing her on 27 November.
New life with Jesus
18 yr old homeless young man, S gave his life to Jesus and was baptized in August. We have since helped him to get into his own flat.
Brotherly love & baby dedications
We are continuing to share the love of Jesus with all those that God brings us into contact with whether at the pub, bus stop, the meadows, or at Deb’s charity shop with Bethany Christian Trust. We are seeing deeper relationships and friendships form, and also continue to see more and more healings. Praise God!
Won’t you please join us in praying over our city, Edinburgh!
Embarking on the next 10
As we embark on the next 10 years preaching the gospel in Scotland and Europe, we are praying for more of the lost to be reached. We want to THANK ALL of you who have supported us and partnered with us over the years, and appreciate you continuing to do so. During this new season, honestly, we are at a critical stage where we need to increase the number of our partners who can join with us to help resource our ministry in spreading the Gospel.
