We are all in Cambridge, England now. Michael & Danae just got in by train from London where they were spending some tome getting to know missionary opportunities there; but they also were celebrating their anniversary by touring around the city.
I sense a
real need for the team to now decompress from intense ministry in Glasgow
during the week before we left. The spiritual oppression and the human
needs could, at times, appear daunting—but they saw it through to the
end in a way that made me proud of them. And our relationships with
staff and clients at the Glasgow City Mission will definitely continue
through social media, email and texting! The staff was so great to us as
we left, celebrating our time together on more than one occasion. I
really think we helped them out—there were days that the GCM was so
understaffed without volunteers that they had to just hand out bagged
lunches at the door for supper.
Here are some photos from the GCM website, which obviously have all been cleared with permission from the clients in them.
By fantastic mercy,
