Sunday the 2nd of August 2015 was a very special day in the life of Tiree Baptist Church as we gave God thanks for Lachlan Mackinnon. Lachie as he is affectionally known, was born on the island 90 years ago on the 1st of August 1925, and apart from a few years of service in the navy during the Second World War, he has lived and worked on the island all his life. He became a Christian under the ministry of the ‘Faith Mission’ workers and for over sixty years has faithfully served his Lord and Master. Over many years he has ministered God’s Word and served as a Church Leader in various capacities for over sixty years. On behalf of the church family, Becky Wright gave Lachie a birthday card and Ian Tainsh presented him with an appropriately inscribed Bible (KJV).

Afterwards we sat down together for an amazing lunch!
We should have 90th Birthdays every week.
