Scotland Team Update-11006

Scotland Missions TripThe Scotland team had a wonderful weekend of ministry! Part of the team spent Saturday helping the youth in Stornoway with a project they were working on. They had a chance to interact with many in the community of Stornoway as the event was at the local grocery store! Part of the team also went to a local fair that day to do some puppet presentations and balloons. Both events were great opportunities to share the love of Christ with the people of Scotland.Friday and Saturday evenings the team spent time at the YMCA working with the children’s nights they have there. Each night was for a different age group. They mostly spent time talking and getting to know them. This is the group we will be working with this week during the children’s program we have planned. Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday we will be planning activities for the children during the day with a presentation in the evening presenting the Gospel. Both the missionaries and the team are very excited about this!! Everywhere we go there are people wondering if we are the American team coming to work with the children!

On Sunday, we had a wonderful time at church. We are staying at a church in Stornoway and this is the church we went to on Sunday. We had the opportunity to be the Sunday School teachers this week. This is the first Sunday of this church having a children’s Sunday School and since we were coming to the church, they asked if we would be willing to do this. We shared the story of the Good Samaritan, sang several songs, and presented the Gospel message using the wordless bracelets. Several of the parents were also there and very excited to see their children excited about Sunday School. It was a great morning!

Sunday evening we were asked to do the youth program at the YMCA. They usually have a time of worship and a speaker. The team sang songs and then Grant shared a message with them. God is really using our team in Stornoway!

Continue to lift up our team in prayer. We are seeing God’s mighty hand at work! Praise the Lord!
