Hello internet! The 2015 Scotland team is getting ready to embark in 11 short days! Our team consists of these 6 wonderful people: Mike Sares, Mary Sares, Michael Lammers, Danae Lammers, Amy Lien, and Matt Kingham (myself). We are very excited (and a bit overwhelmed) to serve in the UK to the people of Glasgow City Mission, Glasgow Mosaic Church, and friends (Stuart and Lynsey Gilmour, Graeme Watt, Steven Green and others). Monday, June 29 is the day! Please pray for us as we gather our remaining finances, and last-minute shopping for items to pack! Pray that God would give us rest and joy, even during this busy time. Mike and Mary Sares and Amy Lien will be taking a 3 week extension in Cambridge, and returning to the US August 17. Michael Lammers, Danae Lammers, and myself (Matt) will take one week extension in London/Cambridge, before returning to the US August 4. Pray that God will keep us safe, and speak his word through us to encourage those in Scotland/England!
Tomorrow night (19 June) is our last fundraiser, our Fish Fry at Scum, with a showing of "God Help the Girl" a musical movie set in Glasgow. Please join us if you can for a night of fun! Suggested donation: $10.
Baby news: Danae Lammers became an aunt yesterday, June 17! Her niece Eliana was born in New Mexico. Also, my 2nd nephew is due to arrive Saturday, June 20th (no news as of yet) I'm hoping he is not more than 9 days late so I can meet him before I fly across the pond!
That's it for now! Stay tuned everyone, for daily blogs starting June 29. And please pray for us. We love you all and can't wait to share our adventures with you!
