Let’s see – where do I begin? Kelty, Scotland is a large coal-mining village north of Edinburgh. Once the mines were closed, the town had little industry and not much to offer any one living there, much less attraction for those who would move into the area. A few years ago the Kelty church consisted of five older ladies and one gentleman. They were considering selling their church building and giving the money to other gospel ministries in the the area, but they decided that it would be wise to pray and ask the Lord what He wanted for their fellowship. The Lord led them to a couple who He has used to help revitalize the church. Through them others came in to Kelty to help with the work and the church began to slowly grow. Four years ago I met a Christian brother from the work in Kelty through one of our U.K. board members. I then made a trip to Kelty Evangelical Church to meet with their leaders to put forth the idea of a GO TEAM Mission with Emmanuel & Associates and with the members of their fellowship and we brought in a GO TEAM from Good Shepherd Community Church in Portland, Oregon. As Paul Harvey, a well known radio show host in the USA, used to say, “And now for the rest of the story!”
Please continue to lift us up in prayer as we plan for next year. I will be traveling to the U.K. on October 23rd – November 17th to work with our church partners for the 2018 GO TEAM MISSIONS. Please pray for us to win souls, to make disciple–making disciples and to multiply the church. Thanks for taking the time to read this ministry report on our 2017 GO TEAM MISSION KELTY Mission and for your prayers that are powerful and mighty in helping to bring down the strong holds that our enemy has over the hearts and minds of the people in the United Kingdom.
Thank you again for supporting us with your prayers and with your finances and in joining us on a GO TEAM MISSION in the United Kingdom!
