Nurses: Growing opportunities in Scotland

Steve Fouch and Pippa Peppiatt had a full and productive week in Scotland at the beginning of February. They were responding to the growing request by student nurses to explore starting CMF nurses groups there. [Pippa writes.] We spent a day in each city: Aberdeen, Dundee, Edinburgh and Glasgow. In each place we met with local nursing and midwifery students and graduate nurses to share the vision of CMF. It was a precious opportunity to show some of our new CMF nursing resources, to run through the practical steps of how to start a CMF student group and to try to identify student leaders (Reps). Of the newly qualified nurses we met, two immediately offered to become local hosts for these groups in Edinburgh and Dundee.

We also managed to speak at a healthcare campus Christian Union, to meet up with a local CMF medical Rep, two UCCF workers who were also nurses, and local CMF medical links who were all very supportive. The Lord is at work in the Celtic lands. Having recently started student nurse groups in Cardiff and Swansea, we are now responding to a new influx of invitations and requests from nurses in Northern Ireland. I [Pippa] may go over to meet nurses in Belfast at the end of March for a similar initial trip, meeting and recruiting.

Please pray for the fruitful process of establishing new groups, whether it is gathering students, identifying Reps and hosts, writing resources, or training and encouraging student leaders. We don't just want to create more activity for already stretched and tired nurses, but rather to keep in step with what the Lord's doing, and help provide ways to encourage, inspire and refresh these wonderful servants of his.
