I have been very busy working on the blog posts for the last few days, so I will allow my teammates to update you on the events of last weekend. I took these posts (with their permission) from the Scotland RP Mission Team page on Facebook.
We went to Sea Cliff beach with a few friends from the Airdrie RP Church, had a picnic, explored, and enjoyed a sweet time of fellowship. At this beach, we were able to look over the sea to “Scotland’s Alcatraz” – the Bass Rock – on which Covenanters were held, and some killed, for their faithfulness to Christ’s Crown and Covenant. Also, on the cliff that we were on, just north of us was Tantallon Castle – once held by Covenanters, destroyed by Cromwell. It was a great day. – Joseph Dunlap
Hello again! This Sunday the Mission team travelled to Glasgow by way of blue minibus for worship. The Rev. Kenneth Stewart exhorted on Psalm 23, reminding us that Christ is the great, good, and true Shepherd for those who are His. He was also introducing the Psalm for follow up in the evening. After tea and biscuits with the congregation, we made our way to the Gillies’ house for lunch. The afternoon was filled with delicious food (the puddings were amazing!), petting the family dogs, and Psalm singing. In the evening we headed back to the church for evening worship where Rev. Stewart preached over Psalm 23 urging us to hear and follow our Shepherd for He truly satisfies all our needs and leads us for His glory. After the service the congregation was invited to more tea and a Q. & A. with the Mission team. We were able to share what we’ve been doing over the past weeks in the community and also thank the congregation for their hospitality and prayers. We know that we have not gone on our own to share our testimonies and spread leaflets, and we are thankful.
