Greetings from Palestine! We are Scot and Carrie and along with our kids, Thomas, Maggie, Scoty, Georgia Kate, and Charlie Jo, we live and work with the Palestinian people. We’ve been serving as international workers since 2004. We hail from Shamokin, Pennsylvania! Here’s a shout-out to our Eastern PA family! We’re both graduates of Nyack College and Alliance Theological Seminary.
What do we do here? Scot is currently serving as the Field Director. We’re also involved in a variety of ministries and frequently work in partnership with the Evangelical Alliance Church of the Holy Land, the Palestinian expression of the global Alliance Church family. We are involved in church planting, theological education, relief and community development, discipleship, and leadership training. Exciting things are happening in Ramallah and throughout the West Bank! God is working and his church is growing! Mosaic Alliance International Church is just one way that God is moving!
Our ministry language is Arabic, which is a beautiful, but challenging language! Prayers for our continuing language acquisition are always appreciated!
We are currently living in Beit Hanina, an East Jerusalem neighborhood close to the West Bank. Some of our kids attend a local Palestinian school with Arabic as their primary education language, while others are homeschooled. We love our neighborhood and are thankful that the kids’ school is just a half mile away from our apartment.
We’re so grateful to all you who pray for us! And who give to keep us here! And who send us MAIL! I (Carrie) am not above pandering for letters and packages! 😀
