OUR calL to MERKINCH FREE CHURCH
Last May, I (Wes) graduated from Reformed Theological Seminary in Jackson, Mississippi. During seminary, Claire and I always talked and dreamed about a move to Scotland once I finished - but only for the purpose of me pursuing further studies there.
Now we are able to see a bit more clearly that through these heart-stirrings, the Lord was actually working in us a desire to serve in Scotland - and, more specifically, to those in the schemes of Merkinch and South Kessock.
COVID has halted our initial plans to move to Scotland by August 2020. This season powerfully reminds us that while “the heart of man plans his way, it is the Lord who establishes his steps” (Proverbs 16:9).
So we’re still living in the Jackson area, working from home (Claire, with Belhaven University; me, with First Presbyterian Church of Jackson). Other than that, we're staying connected with the core group on the ground in Inverness, trying to raise support, and waiting upon the Lord’s timing.

For the Lord to ready us for effective gospel ministry in Inverness.
For the Lord's continued provision in ministry funding and in the interim.
