June Update

Dear Friends,

We leave tomorrow for the US. We fly out on Wednesday, the 25th June at 2pm Irish time (9 am EST) and arrive in Boston at 4pm EST. Please pray for safe travel. The exams are finished. Thank you so much for praying. We won’t know their results till mid August, when they will receive offers of college places.

Please continue to pray for Trinity Church in Lucan while we are away. Pray that the new people settle in well. We have had another new family come the last two weeks, just recently arrived from Estonia. They have four children, two teens and two younger ones. They will help bolster our youth cell. We had a youth party last night, with 16 people! As we have had 5-8 for most of the year, it was great to see the living room full. Our Sunday school is now up to around 60 children, having started with 11 six years ago.

We are so looking forward to being in the US, and to seeing and talking with many of you. It will be good to be able to tell you more of what has happened here in the last three years, and to hear your news!
