WE ARE OVER HALF WAY TO OUR GOAL!!!
God has been so good! I continue to have donations given to me off-line for Mission Scotland. As well, God has blessed me personally to put more towards the trip. So, I have used the Offline Donation button to show a more accurate picture of where we are with the goal. Please continue to pray!
Mission Scotland: The Nuts and Bolts
I have been offered an amazing opportunity to go to Stirling Scotland and put on a one day conference on Creation. I am partnering with a wonderful couple, Dan and Angela Loaiza, who planted a church in Stirling, just over a year ago. We met in Austin, and recognized that we share a passion for sharing the evidence of creation with people. So, on October 24th, I will hop on a plane and fly to Stirling, where I will be the speaker for the conferece we are calling, Origins: By Design. The best part is that it doesn't stop there. I will also be speaking at Edinburgh, Motherwell, and probably Glascow. I have a full schedule and will not be back until November 6th. Unfortunately, I don't have the means to do all of this on my own. I am asking that you partner with me to be able to share the gospel, biblical creation, and a trust in God's Word with the people of Scotland.
Mission Scotland: The Vision
My desire, and prayer, is that I would be able to completely bless the churches and people of Scotland. Scotland is not a Christian country at this time, despite its rich history, and most of the churches are very small. They simply do not have a lot of money for this type of thing. It is my vision to go and speak in every one of these cities for free, including the conference. I want to make sure nothing stands in the way of reaching Scotland with the message of creation and Jesus. Please help me as I come alongside these pastors in igniting a spark and a revival in this country. We want to see a miracle, as a country turns to their Creator and once again serves and worships Him.
Mission Scotland: Counting the Cost
This endeavor is not cheap, and I am looking to God's family, here in the states, to unite with me in blessing our brothers and sisters in Scotland. This is their time of spiritual need, and I pray that you will join me in this mission. The estimated cost of the trip will be $2,750-$3,000. This includes airfare, lodging, food, renting the conference room, giving away books on creation at the Youth Club in Edinburgh, purchasing resources for the conference, travel within Scotland, etc. (I will do an update with more information on the books) As I am able to allocate funds myself, or receive help outside this website, I will update the total for everyone to see. Any money collected over what is needed will be given to Calvary Stirling for an outreach fund. Their church is in the city, where they are open during the day, and offer free coffee and wi-fi to anyone. However, they also have a huge heart for, and have begun to reach out to, the Stirling University students there as well. Please give knowing that your money will be going towards the work of the ministry.
Mission Scotland: Updates
Please click the Follow button in the top right, as I will be doing updates prior to the trip. I will be sharing more about the mission and news on how needs are being met outside of this site. However, if you give me your email, I will also be bringing equipment to share videos, pictures, and interviews directly from Scotland. My goal is to help everyone to feel connected to this mission, and inspire others to come alongside the pastors and organizations, in Scotland, as they reach people for the Lord.
