Harvest Bible College Begins!

The month of August was filled with much anticipation and preparation (a.k.a. less sleep and more coffee) for the upcoming HBC school year. This year, I will be filling the role of Academic Dean for the full-time college and principal of the part-time school. I am happy to report that we have a wonderful group of 9 students in HBC full-time, and they are already bursting with excitement (as you can see above.) I can hardly wait to see what God has prepared for these students. Future preachers, teachers and ministers for the Kingdom of God!

New Life Church Glasgow

In every prayer, I can't help but begin with, "God, thank you for the opportunity to be here." New Life Church in Glasgow has become a second home, and I am so grateful to work with the people and leadership team here in Scotland. However, my hope is that this prayer never changes. Whether I am in Washington or Scotland or somewhere new, I am learning that each season in life is an opportunity from the Lord. I am reminded of the Apostle Paul's words, "For I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content" (Philippians 4:11).

Upcoming Events

In October, there will be a Northern District Youth Conference in Belfast, Ireland and a Northern District Ladies Conference in Stirling, Scotland. To attend and participate in these events is approximately £250. If you would like to sponsor me for either of these events, it would be a great blessing. You can email myself or contact the Tower of Pentecost in Richland, WA. Thank you again for all your prayers and support!

For All My Fellow Washingtonians

While at Costco in Glasgow, I ran into a fellow Washingtonian (and Seahawks fan) from Medical Lake. What a small world! Thanking Jesus for the small blessings.

About Me

First, I would like to give you a wee welcome and thank you for reading. My name is Cori Smith and I was born and raised in Washington State. With little but a passion for the Kingdom of God, the Lord has led me to Glasgow, Scotland where I am working as an Associate in Missions at New Life Church. Please join me in my journey and stay blessed with good news from Scotland!
