Dublin Christian Mission Summer 2009

A couple of weeks ago we as a family took part in one of DCM’s Family camps. It was such a blessing to be envolved in seeing God work in the lives of the kids and there mom’s at the camp. Martha was blessed as she spoke to the mom’s and disscussed many questions about Jesus. Please pray for the work of Dublin Christian Mission.

The Mustard seed Project

Each Monday night members of the mustard seed project head on to the streets of Dublin to demonstrate Jesus love to the homeless. For the past few months now I have had the privilege of going out on the streets with the mustard seed team. Each week we bring Pot Noodles, Hot tea, Soup, Sandwiches, Gloves, Hats, and Sleeping Bags.  it is a great opportunity  to pray and share the gospel and bring hope to the desperate. Please pray for the homeless and the mustard seed project.

Last night it was very cold, windy, snowy, raining and wet. It is heartbreaking meeting so many on the streets. It always distresses the team when we meet young children out so late when they should be tucked up safe in their bed asleep. Pray for a mother and her young son that she and her son would get proper accommodation. There are lots of tough and heartbreaking stories each week. Please pray for the team especially for those who can be understandably affected by some of the situations we come across. Last night it was very challenging as it was so cold and wet.

No Regrets

The video clip below is not meant as a guilt trip, I was just thinking to myself about the past year as one does at this time of the year. I was thinking about all the things I had planned to do last year and if I had any regrets about those plans that did not happen. And are they things I should fret over, are they things I should pursue, are they what God has called me to do? But it is a very difficult way to gauge a successful year thinking like this. Most of my plans are not what is most important. They are not what I am called to fret over or give my life over to. Maybe the way to gauge a successful year is by asking the question; Am I more like Jesus than I was last year? Am I following His lead? Am I still seeking His kingdom and His righteousness?

May God bless you in this coming year, and may He show you what is most important for you to pursue and also avoid in this coming year. May you have no regrets.

Please do take time and watch this video clip.
