Evangelists Travel to Scotland to ‘Thunder Out’ the Gospel

A team of international evangelists will be taking the Good News of Jesus Christ to the streets of Scotland this month.

“Thunder Over Scotland” is a unique mission tour sponsored by JeremiahCry Ministries. Founder Jeff Rose states that the endeavor is important because the “focus will be on Christ and making Him known.”

“We will raise up the fiery righteous standard of King Jesus and shine the light of his Gospel throughout the whole land — a nation that has been held captive to Satan’s grip,” he said. “Rest assured, the Gospel with be the major thrust of this missionary endeavor.”

One of the team leaders of the trip is Chris Sippley of Canada, who also participated in a tour with Rose last year. He says that the Christian roots of Scotland make the upcoming missions effort even more important.

“This next trip is especially close to my heart because studying the rich history of Scotland I almost feel indebted to them to bring back the Gospel that they brought over to us,” he said.

Indeed, icons of the Christian faith such as George Whitfield and John Wesley had preached in Scotland many times before their missionary trips to the American Colonies that were a part of the Great Awakening. Famous Scottish Preachers such as Robert Murray M’Cheyne, Horatio Bonar and John Knox are widely studied in America today.

Sippley is currently in Scotland preparing the way for the others to arrive.

Over two dozen Christians from several different nations will be joining Rose and Sippley on the tour, including Frank Rollberg of Alabama.

Rollberg says that he has been preaching in the open air and witnessing for several years.

“Scripture says we are commanded to preach the Gospel to every creature,” Rollberg said. “Jesus Christ is the only hope for lost sinners and we, being followers of Christ, are to take the Good News of the Gospel to the ends of the earth.”

Rose does not apologize for the intensity and passion he has for this event.  He describes the 12-day tour as “intense, full-throttled, undignified, uncompromised, fully concentrated, both guns blazing, Christ-exalted street preaching.”

“Thunder Over Scotland” begins June 21st and concludes July 2nd.  It marks the third year that JeremiahCry Ministries has sponsored a mission trip to the United Kingdom.
