Mission Aviation Fellowship - December 2019
We arrived in Scotland at the beginning of October and the first few days were quite busy as Melissa's brother got married. The girls were flower girls in the wedding and they did a wonderful job.
From there on we started meeting up with people and churches. We mainly focussed on our home church in Glasgow in the first few weeks and we were also able to go and talk at the MAF Volunteers for Scotland meeting. It was a rather busy period, but still refreshing as we met up with friends and family.
The second part of our furlough was spent travelling around. We first went to visit Belgium where we met up with Hans' family and people from the church he grew up in. We were also invited to revisit another church, where Hans preached during the morning service. Hans was able to head out to a yearly meeting of Flemish churches, where he had a little table with information about MAF. The rest of the time was spent hanging out with Hans' family and friends from church in Belgium.
We would like to thank you all for your support this past year and wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy 2020.

Sutton Schoolswork (SSW) is a Christian charity that is passionate about supporting students in Sutton to understand and explore Christianity and to develop spiritually, morally and socially.
Within the London Borough of Sutton there are 45 primary schools and 15 secondary schools and SSW aims to support all those schools in a variety of ways.
The Director of SSW is Simon Ellingham, who has already visited us. Simon has previously acted in the SSW Easter Experience at North Cheam Baptist Church where he played Jesus, and is retired from the Metropolitan Police.
SSW has two full-time schools workers—Sarah Skinner who works with primary schools, and Kate Travers who covers secondaries. The schools workers work with the support of volunteers and of Children’s, Youth and Family Workers from the many churches which support SSW.
SSW workers reach 27,000 children and include leading school assemblies, teaching in RE and PSHE classes, running Christian Unions in schools and organising parent prayer groups. SSW also puts on two dramatised presentations, Discover Christmas and Easter Experience, seen by hundreds of children every year.
The latest news and prayer requests from SSW is usually on the Our news page.
