We Are Here!

After lots of prayers, and hours of travel, we are here! Thankfully, everything ran smoothly except for a hiccup with border control. However, there is power in prayer and we hit the ground running in Scotland.

After Lance and Heather (our missionaries) picked us up at the airport, we went to the Stanely House in Paisley which is a YWAM base, and got to tour our home for the next two days. The house was built in the 1800s and is full of history and culture. The view is absolutely breathtaking and it feels like a dream. After the Stanely House, we went to another YWAM base in West Kilbride to get a feel for life there and see a different area. It was so fun to see where Dani Luyo lives, for those of us who know and love her.

From there, we loaded up in the van to visit some castle ruins from the 1300s. The castle sat right on the beach, and we got to climb all around it on the rocks. Everywhere displays God's creativity and beauty, but it is so evident in Scotland. You can't deny Him when you're standing in a place like this. It's unreal.

After the castle and the rocky beach, we rode to a more sandy beach, with lots of room to run and take in all the scenery. We collected rocks and shells, threw the football, and played with several of the dogs on the beach.

To end the day, we spent time at Lance and Heather's house with their family. We walked to a local restaurant to pick up fish and chips for dinner. We brought it back to the house to eat together, and spent time playing basketball, jumping on the trampoline, and just enjoying each others company.

After a long day, we are settled back at the Stanely House, and so ready for bed. One more day to adjust and prepare before going our separate ways to The Isle of Lewis and Inverness.

Thank you for all the prayers and please keep them coming! We are sending out love back home.
