We are Alko & Miriam. Since 2010 we were involved in the Afterbeat Charity in the Netherlands. With this charity, we organized lots of events combined with sport and music lessons in schools.
In 2017 we felt a clear calling to work as missionaries in Scotland. God opened doors that we could not have imagined. Alko was given the opportunity to work for The Message Trust. An amazing evangelical organization that started with the band The World Wide Message Tribe. Alko travelled a great deal since 2015 with the Afterbeat charity and the Transform band as he was the European manager. He came into contact with The Message Scotland and was asked to work for this organization in Scotland to set up the school work (creative mission). Alko was a fan of the band since he was 12 so this was a dream that came true. He never could imagine to actually work for this amazing charity.
In 2018, God opened the doors to move to Scotland. The house was sold and Miriam found a fantastic job at Terwille (Christian mental health coach) where she can work online as a counsellor. She also started to work for a local youth charity called Heart & Sound in Dunfermline.
In the first two years was Alko responsible for all school missions of the Message Trust in Scotland. In 2020 Alko & Miriam felt that they had to move on extending the Afterbeat charity to Scotland.
Transform is a very large part of our mission. Alko is still working in the background and helps to find mission opportunities. Transform aims to stop abortion and reach a million people with the gospel of Jesus Christ.
It would be amazing if you could support our mission in Scotland, the Netherlands and beyond. Please visit our website to see how you can support us: www.movetoscotland.nl.
