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!

 

Recently we have been praying and hoping that the Lord would send some others to join us in ministry in Gyor. As ministry grows and changes we need help and are simply unable to do more. We have some great local people who help with various different ministries, but we really could do with a missionary/missionary couple or missionary family to partner with us. Could that be you? Or perhaps you know someone who may be interested? Here is a list of areas that we need help in:

  1. Expanding ministry to orphans (we have a desire to see this work grow)
  2. Leading Bible studies (we have two weekly)
  3. Helping with worship and/or preaching
  4. Starting an English language club
  5. Helping with ladies coffee morning or starting a group for men
  6. Pastoral care
  7. Hosting visitors and teams
  8. Whatever else the Lord puts on your heart!

If you might be interested, please contact me via the contact form. Looking forward to hearing from you!

 

Over the past months, I have enjoyed working on a writing project in my free time. So you want to be a missionary… is a concise handbook for those considering becoming a missionary, for supporters of those on the mission field and for family and friends of those serving on the mission field. It is available in both paperback and Kindle format from Amazon. A portion of the profits will go to support the persecuted church.
