Return trip to Harris.

Friday, February 18th, 2011

After the successful trip to the outdoor centre in Scaradale last year, we are planning to go again, from 16th – 21st July. This time it will be intergenerational – that is, for all ages. It will be interesting to see how the different ages get on. As before, we will be involved in kayaking, gorge walking, fishing, archery, walking and lots more.
The Youth worker, Kenny Smith, from Stornoway will be working with us.

Preshal charity shop in Stornoway

Friday, February 18th, 2011

In the next month we are going up to Lewis to set up a charity shop in premises given to us by Donald Martin. If anyone has any items they wish to donate to the shop that would be great.

New building for Preshal

Friday, February 18th, 2011

It is hoped the new building will start later this year. Sadly, the present building will have to be demolished first. The fundraising is going well though more funds are still needed.
God has been good and gracious – Praise his great name.

Great News!

Alan has become engaged to Karis. Congratulations! Karis is a lovely Christian girl from Stornoway and a member of Dowanvale Free Church in Partick. Karis is a teacher in Glasgow. What a lovely couple, but the greatest thing is that they both love Jesus. One good thing is that, if they ever have an argument, Karis can always shout at Alan in Gaelic and he won’t understand a word!
To celebrate the happy news, Preshal had a wonderful evening of dancing, singing and enjoyed a great meal prepared by Tony, the chef – a feast fit for a Royal couple.

Very Sad News

Marion, one of Preshal’s friends, has left to be with the Lord.
Marion was one of the most giving people May has ever known. She first came along to the Disabled Drivers Association held in this building and ended up joining Preshal because of the good food.
She was very caring towards the homeless lassies, always willing to go the extra mile for them, such as running them to court and supporting them in many ways no-one knew about. Although she wasn’t a Christian at the time, when someone had to pull out of a Preshal conference in Ireland, she was happy to go instead. She was so impressed by the love of the Christians that, a week later, she and her husband John appeared at May’s door saying they both wanted to become Christians. She will be very sorely missed, but today she is sitting at Jesus’ feet.
