Merry Christmas from Bonnie Scotland!
Oh my goodness! SO MUCH has happened since our last newsletter!
Lisa and I wanted to send you an update this week before Christmas to let you know where we are and what all God has been doing through NewCREEations. Let’s start at the beginning.
Luggage loaded for the drive to the airport.
On November 7th, we said goodbye to our home in Colorado and flew to Lynchburg, Virginia so we could spend a few days visiting my (Chris’s) family on our way to Scotland. It had been a few years since Lisa had seen my folks and we had a wonderful time with them and with my sister Katy. Then on that Friday Katy drove us to Dulles airport in Washington D.C.
From there we flew to Dublin, Ireland to change planes to head on to Birmingham, England. We were surprised that we went through the UK immigration process in Dublin. The previous time we flew into Birmingham we went through immigration control there. Regardless, all our visa paperwork was in order so we had no problems.
We flew to Birmingham because it’s near the main Andrew Wommack Ministries UK office, which is in Walsall, England. We went there first to take care of some legal requirements for our visas. While we were there we got some more training as well as other paperwork things done. Our hosts, Klaus and Ann Gruber, and the rest of the team at the ministry and Charis Bible College took excellent care of us by providing transportation for us to and from the hotel, etc.
It was great to both see old friends and meet new people. We shared with the students in the school about the vision for the new Scotland Charis Bible College location along with our journey to becoming directors. Our time in Walsall was special all around.
