SCOTLAND Reports

Shetland: The believers in Shetland were again encouraged with the camp work in July. Gordon McCracken and Bogi Vang faithfully presented the gospel to the 9-11 year olds, over the first two weeks. The biggest number of teenagers to date came for the third week when Bogi gave basic ministry and preached the gospel. Colin Bissett was responsible for the teaching to the young people at the final weekend. It is good to see so many children and young people at these camps especially since the majority are not from Christian homes. Our prayer is that many will be saved, baptised and built into the different assemblies in Shetland.

In August a group of believers organised by Thomas Jennings (N Ireland) came to help locals evangelise the northern isles of Shetland. Unst, Yell and Fetlar (communities of 1,500 souls in total) were visited with tracts, and meetings held on different nights. One lady there professed to be saved and good interest was shown in some areas. Another lady professed to be saved at the meeting in Lerwick prior to the team leaving Shetland.

Dr Farid Abou Rahme also came to the Lerwick Town Hall to give talks on creation for three nights. A good interest was shown by a significant number of people. The question and answers session proved very interesting and enabled Farid to faithfully declare the gospel.

Fife: The assembly in Ballingry again pitched their gospel tent in the village of Crosshill. The preaching was shared by Jack Hay and local brethren. The interest in these meetings was outstanding with up to 35 unsaved people attending, 18 of them hardly missing a night over the six weeks of the campaign during August and early September. Many showed signs of deep concern about salvation, and the believers are praying that many may soon take that vital step of faith in Christ.

St Andrews: During the University Freshers’ week in September, the Gospel Hall, which is close to the campus, was used as it had been the previous month as a drop in centre to make contact with students and townsfolk with the gospel. The believers from outwith the area who organised and manned this effort were able to make several good contacts and many items of Gospel literature were taken.

Castle Douglas: The assembly had 15 nights gospel meetings during September with Robert Miller and Jim Paterson jnr sharing the preaching. There was an interest generated in the town through invitations and texts being distributed, and open air meetings being held each evening. Good numbers of unsaved attended each meeting and one middle-aged woman professed salvation after attending most nights of the first week. The assembly was encouraged by the interest shown, and also appreciated the help and support of believers from other areas in tracting and attending the meetings. Pray for the work done and contacts made.

N. IRELAND Reports

The trend generally is that many children are not attending Sunday Schools as once they did.
