                               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.

God is MOVING!!!!
October 30, 2018, 5:46 am

I wanted to mention a couple of things from the conference, that you guys can be in prayer for.   I met so many wonderful people at the conference, but a couple of things stuck out.  Pray for Veronica as she found this conference and was so excited.  She is feeling like she is not being fed spiritually in her current church and is looking for a good solid church....I just happened to know one.  : )   Also her daughter came to the conference with her.   She has not been to church in a very long time but she loved the conference and was amazed that there was good evidene for biblical creation!  The daughter is going through a hard divorce.   Pray that both these women can plug in and allow God to guide and heal them. 

Also met another gentleman there who when I said hi to him, the only thing he really told me is, "my wife and child go here".   I didn't get much more from him, but later found more information.   He is not a believer and his wife endures many insults and rants about christianity when he does come to church or an event with her.   She came to a talk I did Sunday night and she told me, "He didn't say a word for the first time.   He was quiet afterwards and that means he was really thinking about it."  Pray that the evidence I presented in in Biology, Astronomy, and Geology tore down some strongholds in his mind and that he would listen to the voice of God calling his name.    

Ok I am off exploring by myself this morning and am off to Stirling Castle!  

Talk to you soon.

I'm here and I am exhausted! It is awesome!

Well, I have to apologize.  This is my first update on this amazing trip.   We have seen such wonderful things with the conference on Saturday and the talks on Sunday.    

I got in Thursday afternoon and went to church at Calvary Fellowship Stirling.   A small but awesome family of believers.    The kind of people you just like instantly.   It was a great lesson and what I didn't know is that there is a discussion after the message where they serve tea (missing Starbucks) and snacks.    It was a great time of fellowship and wonderful to see the lives that Dan and Angela are touching on a daily basis. 

I just did 5 talks in two days so I have been full force.   Unfortunately, my photos won't load here.   So, I will figure something out soon.   

I am off to Glencoe!  My first sight seeing trip!  I will send pictures!

We Did It!!!!!!!! Fully Funded and Three Days to the Trip!!!!!

Does Scotland really need mission trips?   Doesn't it have a rich christian history?   Check out this video!  

Scotland Update: An Interview with Tim Bentley

 

Resources are Key!!! Part 1
August 19, 2018, 10:50 am

I want to thank everyone that has donated so far!  

I am so excited as I prepare my talks and make plans to bless the people of Scotland.   It is on my heart today to just help you understand why I am trying to get resources to bring to the conference and to the youth club.   

In general, resources are absolutely key to helping people break down the stronghold of evolution in their mind.   There is an excitement and desire to share when you read evidence for biblical creation.   I call them the SHUT UP! moments.   I read something and say, "Shut up!  There is no way!"   It's the moment you're sitting there wondering why people still believe in evolution or dis-believe the bible when there is evidence out there, that points to a creator.  It is this home study that continues to stoke the flame ignited in people at creation talks and conferences.   

Now, the youth coming to the Club in Edinburgh are not christians.   They don't go to church.   In their neighborhood, there is little to no christian influence.   Which means the time they spend on Wednesday nights with Pastor Dan Starling is massively important.   I can't wait to give a short but powerful presentation on creation.   This will challenge their thoughts on where they came from, why they are here, etc.   Giving away a resource that can answer quesitons on creation is a no brainer here.   Of course, it's normal to hand out 20 books like this and only 15 will take them.   Even still, you are looking at maybe 5 really reading any part of it.   However, it is the Holy Spirit...only God could do that...type of stuff that I count on.   It's the parent that want's to know what book their child was given that  I'm thinking of.   It's the child that has quesitons two years down the road, and God puts the book in their mind....or they 'just happen to see it".   These are the divine appointments that I am investing it.   I remember that I was handed a book in college that I never read.  It sat on my bookshelf for years until someone told me I should read, "More Than a Carpenter".   Guess what was sitting on my shelf for years?  There is no doubt, in my mind, that God is the Master of the long game.   

Please partner with me to reach out to these youth now, and in the future.   Help me to reach their parents and their friends.   Let's make a difference in people's lives, together, for eternity.
