George Meikle and Roy Marshall are moving on to visit door-to-door in the Thornhill area of Falkirk, near the Gospel Hall, after being in Culross in Fife for a few weeks where there were a few interested souls in what was otherwise a very difficult village. The number of friendly people with no concern about spiritual things whatever is a cause for deep exercise before God. Prayer would be valued for blessing that the Lord would awaken a few.


In Peterhead at present there are many Eastern European workers who feel a pressing need to learn to speak better English. The assembly has taken the opportunity to help with this by meeting every Tuesday evening with around 20 Latvian and Lithuanian folks to help them with basic English and introduce them to the Scriptures and the gospel.

The enthusiasm of these foreign friends to come to the hall and learn our language, hear the gospel message, and enjoy some hospitality and friendship is most encouraging. The whole assembly is supportive of this work, with some 20 brethren and sisters actively involved in the teaching, all finding it both enjoyable and rewarding.

Prayer would be very much appreciated for the continuation of this work and for blessing especially in salvation.
