Good News from Northern Europe

We thank God for His blessings on our Annual Ministers’ Retreat and Planning Session. This was for the ministers in North England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. We thank God for new works that are starting and for souls being added to the Kingdom.

Each year, we have students attend the European Youth Conference in Melun, France.  A great group went this year and were immensely blessed in the services and in the great fellowship with young people from around Europe.  This is always one of the highlights each school year, and we are thankful we can be a part of this great conference.

Each year it is great to celebrate Thanksgiving with people from around the world.  We enjoyed great food and fellowship this Thanksgiving as we all gave thanks for the good things in our lives.

It was great to be with the church in Edinburgh as they celebrated their 15th Anniversary. God has blessed Bro. and Sis. John Beek as they lead this work.  It was an honor for them to have their pastor
and his wife, Bro. and Sis. Pollard from St. Catharine’s Ontario, with them for this special celebration.

We thank God for the vision of the Glasgow Church to see cell groups established around the city. Harvest Bible College graduates are involved in this ministry and we rejoice to see God using them. Pictured is the group in Maryhill on the northwest side of the city.

God is moving in each nation of Northern Europe.  Where there are churches established, people are coming to know the Lord and receiving the new birth experience.  We have pastors, missionaries and saints who are striving to live for God and do a work for Him in these very challenging nations.  It is our privilege to live and work amongst them.

Pray for:  Greenland, Iceland, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Denmark, the Channel Islands, the Isle of Man, Ireland and the United Kingdom—England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

God has been good to us and we count our blessings.  As we come to the close of another year, we look with anticipation as to what God will do in 2019 and BELIEVE for great things to take place in the countries of Northern Europe.
