Once again, there is a team of folk from Scum of the Earth church heading to Glasgow, Scotland for a month to work alongside our dear friends at Glasgow City Mission, Glasgow Mosaic church & Stuart Gilmour + crew!
Four of us have been on previous trips, myself: Ben Mercer, Jerred Powell, Katie Eglsaer, and Chad Merchant from the 2012 trip; plus Jordan Tinklenberg and Sarah Anema. We have been meeting bi-weekly since February to prepare for our trip and get to know each other better. Please join us in praying for increased growth in team unity.
We have also put on three fund-raisers: a fish fry, a tea party, and a rummage sale which helped us work together as a team. With the funds raised from those fund-raisers plus donations from friends and family, we currently only need $4,568.34. Pray for God's provision for the remainder of the necessary funds. If you would like to contribute financially to our mission trip, you can do so by mailing a check made out to 'Scum of the Earth' with 'Scotland 2014' in the memo line to 935 W. 11th Ave./Denver, CO 80204 or online via paypal.
Finally, if you think of it, please pray for Jordan and Jerred: Jordan's dad is currently in the hospital for his 3rd open heart surgery & Jerred is recovering from an infection.
Thanks for reading and check back here for regular updates!
Addendum: Just heard from Jordan: The doctor has cancelled today's surgery and is looking in Portland and Seattle to find a more experienced surgeon for the operation. Please pray that a doctor will be found, the surgery will go smoothly, recovery will be quick, and there will be no complications.
