Call for toiletries at Airdrie Foodbank

The Airdrie Foodbank has now been running at the Church for a few months and this week we provided for 30 people and families.

There is currently a specific need for toiletries, particularly for men but those for women and children would also be appreciated.

If you are able to help, please deposit items in the collection basket in the vestibule.

Please continue to pray for those who attend the Foodbank, as well as those who volunteer each week.

We’re home….

We arrived in Glasgow last night about 7pm after a 19 hour journey. We were all very tired but happy to be welcomed by family and friends at the airport. Lindsey’s children even had a banner!! 

The entire trip was such a fantastic experience. There was great team spirit and we were all kept safe and healthy in the very different environment and culture.

We carried out 14 separate clinics and saw approximately 1000 people in total. Many people were so grateful for relief from pain and treatment that they would, otherwise, have found almost impossible to get. The nurses who worked with us were invaluable and we were so sad when we had to say goodbye to them. They became our friends.

The Youth conference was dynamic and eventful and it was a blessing  to see young people respond to the preaching and witness over 70 of them baptised in the Krishna River.

We have all grown and learned so much from the Indian people we met. Emmanuel and Dee Rebba and their family are an absolute inspiration and example to us all. We will never forget the last 2 weeks!!

The work continues and we should continue to pray for it!!

A busy couple of days

Yesterday was a great day as we worshipped in the Repalle church with the local congregation. The church was packed full! The U.K. and USA team even sang a song!! The women all wore beautiful saris and, for once, added to the vibrant colours of India. 

In the afternoon we returned to the Krishna River where about 20 more people were baptised.

In the evening, we joined in with the girls’ devotions and Jason and Gordon did an entertaining talk about trust. The girls loved it!!

Today we visited Pedalanka CDC and did a clinic for over 60 children. We ate curry from banana leaves before participating in a gospel meeting for the local villagers.

There are so many experiences in one day here. The people are tireless, committed and an example to us all!! 

Pray for us as we do one more clinic tomorrow in the orphanage for the college boys and begin to pack up equipment. We are already tearful at the thought of leaving some of the children and young people we have connected with….especially the nurses we work with every day!!
