Martha and I want thank all our family and friends for an amazing summer. We had such a wonderful time catching up with old friends and making new friends. We have so many highlights (Patrick and Haley’s Wedding). You have opened your homes and your hearts to us, you have encouraged us in so many ways. We hope to catch up next time with those we didn’t get to see this time. Back in Ireland looking forward to serving God and seeing the great things he will do.
We had a great time at New Life Christian Church in Watertown NY. Very blessed to be able to share our work with such wonderful people. It was great to spend time with Jennifer and Christopher and kids.
The weeks are flying by and our furlough/home assignment is fast approaching, and of course the wedding! Excitement is building as the time draws closer. We are looking forward to the wedding and to getting to know Haley’s family, whom we have not met yet. (Hopefully after meeting us they will still let her marry Paddy!) As you can imagine we are busy finalizing plans and getting things sorted this end. We have been to the US embassy to renew passports, getting doctor and dentist and orthodontist visits in, and a myriad of other details, as well as preparing for visiting churches and groups.
Our itinerary is taking shape, though there are still dates to be scheduled/confirmed.
Please do get in touch if your church/group would like us to come, or if you would like to host an event in your home. Or if you live near any of the places we are visiting and would simply like to meet up, we would love to see you!
We are really looking forward to being there and seeing many of you. We long to hear what God has been teaching you and revealing to you of Himself, and what you are struggling with. Our hope and prayer is that we can encourage your hearts, and be encouraged by you. As we share together we hope that you will be re-envisioned in your own mission to those around you, and that we will return to Ireland in September with renewed enthusiasm for the new things God is leading us into.
Thank you for being a part of this journey, for your thoughts, prayers and support.
We had a wonderful time at Town family camp this year. We had a great team of leaders who worked very hard all week. The discussion times with moms and Dads were really good, a real time of breakthrough this year. Thank you for all your prayers God is truly at work in the city. Please continue to remember us in your prayers.
