Welcome to the Scotts Hill missions blog Beyond the Borders! Why another blog in the blogosphere, you may ask? And, why one having to do with missions? Those are good questions! However, I am not sure that anything we will say here in this welcome will serve to satisfy you or convince you that either are paramount. But, if you hang around and continue to visit this site we believe you will become convinced of both!

Here is why we say this. We are witnessing the grace of God being poured out on the lives of people here in our own community and in other places in the world. We are partnering with ministries that are making an impact in communities around the world, and lives are being transformed. You will hear about these ministries and the work that is happening. We are also sending men and women from Scotts Hill into our community and communities around the world who are engaging people with the Gospel and working to help alleviate human suffering and are meeting human needs. You will hear from these men and women. And, you will be able to read about God’s work in and through them as well as those to whom they are ministering.

So, we invite you to linger a while and read these accounts as they are posted. Hopefully, you will become convinced of the glory of God’s grace as you read the stories of transformed lives. And, as you spend time with us we hope you are encouraged and challenged as we post things that will help you in your own quest in missions! 

So, join us in going Beyond the Borders!
