Exploring a New Frontier

Exploring a New Frontier

What a full and busy week we have had! It has made us realize that we have to fight hard for the solitude and sanctuary that we found while we were in California.  The pace here has been pretty intense with meetings, networking, strategizing, building relationships, and some travel. These first 2 weeks have been a bit of a shotgun approach to tap into options and opportunities in general. With our hostess, Shona, just working her way back into her normal schedule after losing her mum unexpectedly about 6 weeks ago, this has been the time for us to explore beyond Whiteinch Church.  With those conversations behind us, however, we are looking forward to finding a rhythm here where we are based.

If you are connected with us on social media, some of this will be a repeat, but we know that many are not personally connected to us on Facebook, so we'll give you the run down of the past week.

All Things New - Scotland 2017

All Things New - Scotland 2017

Here we are again in the land of Scots, the land God has planted so deeply within us.

Last year, we were given a prophetic picture of a Scottish thistle with a diamond engagement ring on it along with a prophetic word that God has betrothed us to this land.  We were also given a word that there was a pregnancy in progress, that something had been conceived and we would see a manifestation of it within a literal 9 months.

Nine months to the day from receiving that word, we were arriving in California, where God has transplanted us in the States for a season.  Nine months to the day from when we left Scotland in 2016, we were stepping foot on the land we love so much once again.

6 Things We'd Like You to Know Before we Leave the US

6 Things We'd Like You to Know Before we Leave the US

As we make final preparations for our 3 month trip overseas, we were thinking about some things we would like you to know before we leave.  Here we go:

1. Packing to be away from home for 3 months is not an easy task. We have been preparing for months. We have been stocking up, thinking ahead, making and checking off 'to do' lists, getting dental and health checks, making lunch and dinner appointments with friends and supporters, etc.  This past weekend, we started packing our belongings and supplies into one carry on roller bag and 2 backpacks,  2 large checked bags (with meticulous effort to keep the weight below 50 lbs.) as well as putting on a fresh set of strings and getting Cathy's guitar ready for the journey.

Hi Everyone -

We always try to keep people up to date with what's happening while we are overseas. Our upcoming trip to the UK/IRELAND will be no exception. Since our last trip, we have launched a new website, so even if you have subscribed to receive our Travel Blog via email in the past, you will need to sign up again as we will no longer be blogging on the old site.
