„Trumpet blowing” in England, Wales, Republic of Ireland, Northern Ireland and Scotland
Before we even started to plan this trip in detail it was obvious to us that we should visit all these countries in one fell swoop. That meant travelling from one country to another without any interruption. This we had previously done in three Scandinavian countries Denmark, Sweden and Norway and also in the former Yugoslavia and now separate Balkan states, where we visited eight nations inside nine days. We believe that GOD wants to bring healing and restoration to these countries whose history is so interwoven with fighting and tales of woe and to make them a blessing for Europe and the world as never before.
Anne and Liz picked us up at the airport in Edinburgh. Both of them are involved with Lydia and other prayer groups and initiatives in Scotland. As everywhere on our travels we met more wonderful brothers and sisters, who made us very welcome and generously looked after us. The trumpet blowing was scheduled for the next day (our 26th. wedding anniversary) in the heart (geographical centre) of the country. As we set off it was raining and cloudy. Our meeting point was at Suzanne’s, a friend and leader of an intercessory group, whose home is near to the „heart“ of Scotland. We expected three other ladies, whose car, unfortunately, had an accident. Because the Scottish trumpeter had to be back at a certain time, we couldn’t wait any longer for them. So six of us started off. Seemingly the adversary was up to his usual delaying tactics, so that, at first, we walked in the wrong direction, and that in muddy and sludgy conditions, up the hill in the rain …. not a great deal of fun. Eventually we were standing in the right place, shared Communion with one another and blew the trumpets over Scotland. What was special about this occasion: It was our 40th. European country; our 26th. wedding anniversary and we were in the heart of Scotland.
