Chicks-Chocolate, Flowers-Fun, Ships-Scotland, Adventure-Airdrie are some of the buzz words associated with the Spring Holidays, 16th-21st April 2014. For me joining with the Airdrie congregation for their Go Team in preparation for their Mission week was a highlight and a productive way to spend my holidays in service for King Jesus.
The main task was to give out leaflets inviting the town of Airdrie to attend a week of mission services looking at the subject “Life then what”. The 9 members of the GO team were joined by members of the congregation to give out 16,800 leaflets over 3 days, Thursday-Saturday. During the evenings the GO Team spent time with the young people of the congregation accompanying them bowling, to Kripsy Kreme, and watching Frozen. I thoroughly enjoyed getting to spend time with the young people, and it was such a blessing to have them join us during leaflet distribution.
In addition to spending time as a team in prayer every morning for the advance of the gospel in Airdrie, it was a blessing to join the congregation for worship on Sabbath and the prayer meetings throughout our stay. As the week of mission has commenced we pray for family and friends of church members to accept the invitation and attend the services, and for those who have received invitations through the door to come also, and ultimately that God would be working, softening hearts to receive the gospel and commit their lives to Jesus.
