Outreach to ‘broken’ Scotland

Another week of gospel outreach brought us into the large and broken housing estate of Lochside, located on the north side of the coast town of Ayr. On noticing that the local council’s motto was ‘sense and worth’, I couldn’t help but reflect on how detached these words were from the scenes we witnessed in this specific area, as we walked the streets and talked to those who lived there. If the motto’s words had been ‘senseless and worthless’, we would have clearly understood why. The people we reached out to with the good news had, in general, no sense about the worth and value...

The precious life of a baby boy, saved by the amazing providence of God

How true are William Cowper’s words about providence: ‘God moves in a mysterious way, His wonders to perform’! Little did I think, when I wrote a letter to the local and national Scottish press, about the desperate need to repeal the Abortion Act, that it would save someone’s life far away in the Gambia. Amazing story But it did, in a wonderful and perfect way. It is a remarkable story of God’s timely and gracious intervention in the life of a couple, when the wife was pregnant, and it ought to be shared with as many people as possible. The devil and his emissaries would...

Moldova (2)

Donald J. Morrison continues his report on gospel ministry to Romanians and Russians in Moldova’s rural countryside.. As we went around the village of Baurci Moldoveni with gospel materials, it was evident that the folk there had their own problems. Some of these, sadly, they have brought upon themselves. I found that alcohol addiction is as much widespread among the poor in rural Moldova, as it is among the affluent in urban Scotland. Broken cisterns Many of them find out, to their cost, the truth of the Scripture, ‘Wine is a mocker, strong drink is raging: and whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise’. A...

Moldova (1)

Donald J. Morrison reports on gospel ministry to Romanians and Russians in Moldova’s rural countryside. My recent 10-day missionary visit to Moldova, in Eastern Europe, was, as always, memorable. A craving to share the gospel with as many souls as possible was my primary reason for this trip, besides helping the poor and needy. At Chişinău I was met by my kind Moldovan Christian hosts, who drove me by car on a 3-hour journey to Cahul, a city in the south-west corner of the country, bordering Romania. This was my home for the next 10 days, and from where my kind-hearted hosts provided lavish hospitality....

Ministry in Moldova (2)

The following report (begun in ET, June 2015) was sent by Donald J. Morrison, a Free Church (Continuing) evangelist based in Inverness, following a recent 10-day missionary trip to Moldova in Eastern Europe. Nearly four years ago, one large Moldavian family was dealt a tragic blow, when the head of the home passed away, leaving a widowed wife (Ekaterina Giok, a devoted Christian) and eight small children. Their lives together were toppled upside down after Vasilli (48) lost his battle with cancer. His devastating loss brought much anguish and heartache to the family, although they knew that the death of a precious husband and devoted...

Ministry in Moldova

The following report was sent by Donald J. Morrison, a Free Church (Continuing) evangelist based in Inverness, following a recent 10-day missionary trip to Moldova in Eastern Europe. In the midst of continuing political and social trouble, Moldova remains a fertile mission field, where evangelical churches, albeit much in need of Reformed teaching, are continuing to grow and multiply. The main opposition to evangelical work comes from the Orthodox Church, which maintains strong ties with local government and strives to maintain its religious monopoly. Evangelical church planters often find this out to their cost, especially in traditionally Orthodox villages where they are can be hounded...

Zeal for missions

Zeal for missions I was recently gripped by the heart-rousing, burning spirit which Charles H. Spurgeon had for the gospel and missions. His spirit should awaken us from our sleepiness and slumber. Would to God that it would also waken the Christian church of our nation from her spiritual lethargy, deadness and worldliness!    Spurgeon said, ‘If there be any one point in which the Christian church ought to keep its fervour at a white heat, it is concerning missions. If there be anything about which we cannot tolerate lukewarmness, it is in the matter of sending the gospel to a dying world’.     The best...
