Stephen Steele, pastor of Stranraer RPC recently spent a morning in the local Primary School, teaching a P7 class along with Dumfries & Galloway Scripture Union worker Owain Evans. It was part of an SU Scotland programme that seeks to get behind many of the myths and traditions of this time of year and see what the Bible actually says about the birth of Jesus. Stephen helped run a Scripture Union group in the school earlier this year, so it was a good opportunity for ongoing contact with those who attended.
Stephen and Owain plan to do further visits this week in some of the nearby village schools, just outside the town. Please pray that this work would bear fruit in the lives of the young people.
