Northern Europe Update

Our pastor in Glasgow, Missionary James Beek, has done a marvellous series of sermons on Isaiah 9.6 during December.  This past Sunday, he ended with the Prince of Peace.  We have never been more thankful that we know the Prince of Peace.  Amongst the storms of 2020, we have felt the serene peace that comes with knowing the Master of the Universe is charting our lives and has ALL THINGS under control. How thankful we are for this priceless peace that passes all understanding. 

The church in Copenhagen has found an excellent building to purchase.  Please pray that God will miraculously supply the $350,000.00 needed to add to what the church has already saved.  Opportunities don’t come like this often in Denmark, and we sincerely pray that God will enable the church to purchase this building.  If you would like more information on how you can help with an amount, big or small, please write to our address.

In 1996, God miraculously provided two buildings for the church in Glasgow, Scotland.  Two buildings were purchased for $130,000.00 US dollars.  They are now insured for over $3.4 million dollars.   In 2002, Harvest Bible College became the full time Bible School for the United Pentecostal Church of Great Britain & Ireland and is housed in these buildings.   

Over time, the roof on the main building that is pictured below has increasingly needed repairs until we have finally been forced into a position of desperately needing a new roof.  God has amazingly provided much of the approximately $60,000.00 needed for this.  We are down to needing $20,000.00 more.
If you would like to give towards this project, we would be most grateful.  By faith, we have started on the first part of this new roof and believe that God is going to supply every penny needed.  The United Pentecostal Church of Great Britain & Ireland is very generously giving to help with this project.  Money raised from their Christmas for Christ Offering will be going to assist with this need.

Thanksgiving found us facing very tough Covid restrictions.  Our family lives in a different county and we weren’t supposed to cross county lines.  Two second year HBC students live near us, but we couldn’t have them indoors. SO, we turned our garden shed into a lovely Thanksgiving “dining room” and put a heater in.  We enjoyed a delicious candlelight turkey dinner with Morgan Price and Aubrey Jones.  We Face-Timed with students and staff in another city and enjoyed our meal “together”.  When there’s a will, there’s a way!
