Day Topic
Monday A BIBLE PANORAMA
A SIMPLE OVERVIEW OF THE BIBLE’S ORIGIN, STRUCTURE, CONTENT AND MESSAGE. 
HOWEL JONES

Howel Jones was a college lecturer with wide experience of informal Bible teaching in several contexts with a God-given ability to present Biblical content in a simple and clear way.
Tuesday A WINDOW INTO AFRICA
ARABELLA PAUL

Arabella came to the Lord when she was 23, in Bristol, England. She studied at The Faith Mission Bible College and joined The Faith Mission in 1989. Evangelising children is what she sensed the Lord called her specifically to do. She had the great privilege of travelling to Malawi to see children reached for the Lord and then had the joy of sharing the Gospel with children, in a couple of different places in Uganda. It was a total highlight of her life in ministry, and she will share about life in Africa and the blessing of sharing Jesus with so many precious young children.
Wednesday THE CHRISTIAN INSTITUTE
NIGEL KENNY, JOANNA COOK AND JOHN DENNING

We are delighted to welcome back the Christian Institute to this year’s Convention to give us an update on all that is happening in the world of politics and lawmaking, as harmful proposals threaten both the ordinary work of churches and family life. Scotland Officer Nigel Kenny will be joined by his colleagues John Denning and Joanna Cook, who will bring updates on education and the conversion therapy ban proposals respectively. Please plan to attend their lunchtime seminar on Wednesday.
Thursday THE TRUTH WILL SET YOU FREE
RIAZ MOHAMMED

Riaz Mohammed was born in Pakistan into a Muslim family. They emigrated into Scotland when he was 6 years old. He followed Islam and thought little of the Christian faith till he met a *born again* Christian and, following a night vision of Jesus, he became a Christian. Despite the difficulties he faced, he did well to become a consultant surgeon and Clinical Director of surgery. At the top of his career a major problem arose, and he had to give up being a surgeon and start all over again. During all his life he found that Jesus Christ was with him and guided him through all the problems he faced.
Friday UPDATE ON VARIOUS AREAS OF FM MINISTRY
GORDON THOMSON & FM WORKERS

Gordon and some Faith Mission workers will be sharing what the Lord has been doing in different areas. Come and hear how God has given opportunities to evangelize and has saved souls and strengthened the Christians.
