I think the summer has arrived! We even went to the beach yesterday us girls...mind you it was a little chilly! One of our most lovely spiritual men in the Mission passed away peacefully yesterday. He will be a great miss to us and we were very sad for ourselves but so glad for him. Doesn't it make a difference when you know that someone has died believing in Jesus and that now they are with their Saviour. I was trying to imagine a little bit of the reception he would receive from the company in Heaven. Eye has not seen neither has ear heard what God has prepared for those that love Him! What a difference! Ok I am off just now but no doubt you will hear from me again. Love Elizabeth. xx

Maybe Today?

I have just spent the greater part of the day under a bunk bed trying to find Polly pockets back parts!!! Anyhow I have done a clean sweep of the room and I am pleased with the results. The week end is upon us and the blurry of girls going to clubs has begun once again. Tomorrow morning I am meeting Nora, my sister and we are going to the Farmer's market. Not really wanting a farmer but hoping he has plenty of nice to produce to buy.
"Maybe today" is a quote that many people have had on their mantlepiece down through the years. A reminder that we must continually be alert because Jesus is coming again and who knows but maybe it is today. Revelation talks about this second coming but one of the passages that I love about His return is found in 1Th 4:14-18. 14: For since we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so, through Jesus, God will bring with him those who have fallen asleep.
1Th 4:15 For this we declare to you by a word from the Lord, that we who are alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will not precede those who have fallen asleep.
1Th 4:16 For the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a cry of command, with the voice of an archangel, and with the sound of the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first.
1Th 4:17 Then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we will always be with the Lord.
1Th 4:18 Therefore encourage one another with these words.
It is a great encouragement for those of us who have received..make sure you have trusted in Him and no matter whether He should come back or take you from this life you will be ready to meet Him.
Hope you have a good week end. I will be in touch again.
Love Elizabeth. xx

A morning off.

Jonathan is doing school with the girls this morning and I am having a wee rest! Always necessary if you ask me. We are getting back into the routine of things and although we are still not starting the regular meetings till October there are plenty of things to keep us occupied. Yesterday we went to visit a not so well member of the congregation. We were supposed to be bringing cheer to him but it was definitely the other way around. I bribed the girls into good behaviour with a promise to the trampoline centre if they were good at the house we were visiting. All went in their favour and we arrived at the trampoline centre and no one else was there so we all had a go. That is an image you may struggle to get out of your mind!!!! Then we went to visit Nora and Davy, (my sister and brother in law). We had a good day as you can tell. The girls are enjoying being back at school and working very hard. Today they have Alba and Sara coming for lunch and a play while I chat to their mum Marian. It is a hard job but someone has to do it huh?
I haven't been taking many photos hence the absence of them but will try to remember to keep getting the camera out. So for now here are some of the holiday snaps again!

Hope you are knowing Him in all your ways and giving to Him the reins of your life.
Until next time, Elizabeth. xx

Back to Work.

I think this is a lovely picture of a baptism we were at in Greece. It reminds me of the fact that no matter where Jesus wants us to go He is there holding out His hand that we may take it and hold on to Him.
Well back to getting Sunday school sorted in time and such like. Find it difficult to get it all sorted out in time sometimes. Not from the lack of time I have but sometimes just hard to get around to. Laziness I guess. This is when you know you should be organised and not leave it till the last minute.
The funeral went well and Jon is glad it is over and the responsibility of it.
We are off to some friends from the church for lunch tomorrow which is very nice.I hope you are all ready for another meeting with the Lord and that tomorrow you may really get a fresh touch from Him. No matter where He leads you to or wants you to go through remember He is holding out His hand and wants you to hold on!
Take care, Love Elizabeth. xx

Returned Again!

No Tower Bridge hasn't moved, we were in London too!

Hi we are back from our holidays...all of them. We have been to Greece to see my sister and brother in law. Wilma and David Lyttle who are Missionaries over there. We had a great time although I think God would really have a sense of humour if He called Bethany there to work as she didn't like the heat at all.
We then had a few days in London with an old friend of Jonathan's called Daada. He is a Liberian fellow married to a northern Irish girl with 4 children living and working with the London City Mission in King's Cross. God would have to give me a seriously big sense of humour to be called there. It was so busy and noisy and I really knew why God has called us to the Isle of Skye!
Lydia was more interested in the squirrels than the Tower of London!

Well we have learnt lots about life for other Missionaries these past few weeks and now it is time to return to the work God has called us to here. Jonathan has the responsibility of taking my good school friend, Ailsa's mum's funeral tomorrow. It is a huge honour to be asked but still a big task ahead. It would be great to see the Lord really break into the whole family's life and do something amazing in their hearts.
Well back to work it is...hope you are well and living for Him! See ya! Love Elizabeth. xx
