Scotland Aflame - May 2011

We’re Home!

We’ve been back in Scotland for nearly 2 months now and we’re finally settled into our flat in Glasgow. Thank you to the Kelleys for providing us with a place to stay and their hospitality while we were looking for our home. After a long road of travel in North America (over 25,000 miles this trip) we have a wee place of our own at last!

Doors Are Opening in the West End

As I’ve mentioned in the past, Jenny and I are starting a work in the West End of the city of Glasgow. In a city of around 2,000,000 in the amalgamated area, it desperately needs another Church. The West End has been, by and large, unreached up to this point. It is a section of the city with a culture and history all its own. This section of Glasgow is filled with folks from all over the world due to immigration, but also due to the large numbers of University students that walk the streets. Who knew that going to Glasgow you could literally “go into all the world?” Well, at least a lot of it.

We’ve seen God open doors for us in the way of the flat that we have moved into, which we got a deal on and which also has a large and open living area that we can fit several into for a Bible Study, or for fellowship. Also, we have a door that is open to us in the way of a place to meet. There will be more to come on that, but I’ll tell you that it is in one of the busiest places in the entire West End. Please pray that God will now begin to connect us to souls to teach Bible Studies to and that we may see a harvest in this our City. We believe God has awesome and powerful things in store. Thank you for partnering with us as we partner with Him. We love you all!
