Geographic Information:
Scottish culture is postChristian. There is little to no understanding of the gospel and the Biblical Jesus. In Urban Deprived Areas, the population is about .14% evangelized. Scotland as a whole is less than 2% evangelized. The harsh terrain & weather make the people very hardened. People are hospitable on the surface, yet it takes a very long time to develop real, lasting relationships. Typically, this impedes the acceptance & spread of the gospel.

Available Housing:
