I had an excellent visit to Ireland this past weekend. Sunday morning I spoke at Mallow Street Gospel Hall in Limerick. As always I received a very warm welcome and it was good to catch up with old friends.
On Monday morning I drove about 3 hours to visit Drewstown (Drewstown being two of my photos on his post) Christian retreat center (in Co. Meath) and met with the leader of the Dublin Family Outreach, Billy Swann. It was exciting see what God is doing in that part of Ireland and I look forward to possible future partnership with these ministries.
Later on Monday I drove to Co. Monaghan where I spoke at the 66th annual Missionary conference in the Presbyterian church in Ballyalbany. About 80 people were present (great for a Monday evening). These people represented many denominations, including Elim, Baptist, Methodist and of course Presbyterians. Wonderful to see people coming together across denominational lines for the spreading of the Gospel.
My hosts for the evening, the Condells, have a mushroom farm. This is something our team in Ukraine is beginning to work on at the rehab centre and I was excited to see a real mushroom farm in operation!
Today I fly home. I am excited to see my family and rest a little. Later this week I have meetings organised, a sermon to prepare for Sunday and Bible study for tomorrow. I am blessed to serve and blessed to have you partner with us!
As regular readers of my blog will know, I typically travel to Ireland once a year to visit family and meet with supporters. This year I visited in January but will also be returning in November for a number of meetings and speaking engagements.
I will fly into Dublin November 1st and travel to Limerick to visit my parents. On Sunday, November 3rd I will speak in Mallow Street Hall at 11am. Please join for worship if you are in the area! On Monday, November 4th I will drive to Co. Meath for a meeting with a possible future ministry partner at 1pm and in the evening at 8pm I will speak at a missions conference in Co. Monaghan at the Ballyalbany Presbyterian Church. Again feel free to come along to the missions conference and hear a presentation about the ministry we are involved in across central and eastern Europe.
This does mean that I am free to speak Sunday evening, November 3rd. Would your church or small group be interested in hearing about what is happening in Hungary, Romania, Russia, Ukraine and about our newest potential work in Moldova? If so, please contact me! I would be delighted to have the opportunity to share with you!
Today I had the privilege of speaking in Mallow Street Gospel Hall in Limerick, Ireland. It was a blessing to spend time worshipping the Lord in my ‘home’ church surrounded by family and friends. I preached on the need of the church to wake and arise at this crucial time in history. Kathy also spoke on our ministry work in Hungary.
Myself and my four ladies have had a short (but very needed) holiday in Ireland. A day trip to Lehinch beach was the highlight for me even though it was very windy and cold!
We enjoyed lots of great food, a trip to the cinema to see the movie Risen and plenty of shopping!!! Have any of you ever noticed how amazingly good women are at shopping? 😉
It was good to be home in Ireland and we look forward to going home to Hungary tomorrow. Please continue to pray for travel mercies!
Happy Easter friends, He is Risen!!!
Easter Sunday, March 27th, we will have the privilege of speaking in Mallow Street Gospel Hall in Limerick. If you are there we would love to see you and chat for a while.
The whole family will be there and we are excited to worship together with our friends.
As we will be in Ireland for only a few days we will not be available to speak elsewhere. Sorry! However if your church, Bible study group etc would like us to visit then just drop me a note and we will work something out for the next time. We are keen to have as many people as possible praying for the ministry work in Hungary and in the Middle-East.
Katica and I (Gerry) are planning on being in Ireland for a few days in October. It will be a whirlwind tour from October 16th to 21st, which will see us in Dublin, Limerick, Laois and Monaghan. On the morning of Sunday the 18th we have a family event but that evening I will drive to Monaghan to visit a church of Congolese believers who are now resident in Ireland. Whilst there I look forward to being blessed by them and hopefully being a blessing to them also.
I’m booked fully for the 16th and 18th, however if you would like me to visit your church, Bible study group, ladies group etc I would be delighted to do so on either Saturday the 17th, Monday the 19th or Tuesday the 20th. Just send me an email or comment on this post and we will work details out.
The coming weeks certainly look very busy indeed as I have a fairly full speaking schedule. I will be speaking in three different countries and presenting about the work in Hungary and in the Middle-East. I’m looking forward to meeting old friends and making some new ones! I hope I will be able to see you on one of these occasions. If we haven’t met yet, please do come up after the presentation and say hi. Below are the dates and I will update this post if any other dates come along. If your church, Bible study group, cell group etc would be interested in having me visit then please do contact me as soon as possible.

In June, several of us McNamara’s will be in Ireland for just over a week and we would be delighted to visit you and your church, home group and/or Bible study group and give a presentation on both our ministry work in Hungary and in the Middle East.
We will be available from June 17th to June 24th and we are willing to travel around Ireland. I will be speaking in Mallow Street Hall on June 21st and I will give a special presentation on the work of the persecuted church in the Middle East then and the work of smuggling Bibles that I have been involved in (we would love to see you, why not come and visit us in Limerick that morning!) If your group has an evening meeting on the 21st that is currently free but I suspect it will be filled soon, so first come first serve!
If you would like us to present then please feel free to use the form below to leave a comment or call me on 0036203846042.
Today I got to visit and speak in Mallow Street Christian Fellowship in Limerick, Ireland. This is my ‘home’ church where I first began to worship the risen Saviour.
Every Sunday at 1100 the believers gather to worship, pray, hear the Word, break bread and fellowship with one another. Click on the link for more details www.mallowstchristians.com/
Today about 70 people were present as I shared from the Word and spoke a little about our ministry in Hungary.
The main speakers were Berny and Michaela Tuccillo. Berny gave an excellent message using a sketch board and Michaela spoke about the work they are doing with the youth of Limerick. Please pray for them as they are a blessing to so many and their work is invaluable.
If you are in Limerick make sure to check out this wonderful group!
