When the Lord called us to be missionaries to Scotland we immediately fell in love with this country. Since moving to Scotland, God has deepened that burden. He has taught me and my family some great lessons. We are not only excited to be Missionaries to Scotland, we are broken over the souls that are lost and on their way to hell. Over the 5+ years that we have lived here in this beautiful country, we have learned to love the people and the culture. We are so thankful that God has placed us in this amazing country. We look forward to seeing what God has in store for us as we endeavor to reach the Scottish people with the Gospel of Christ. We are currently in Scotland actively working to establish Independent Baptist Churches.
