Greetings from Ireland!

Scenic Hike up Dalkey Hill

Scenic Hike up Dalkey Hill

Greetings from Ireland!  We have truly been enjoying our time here at Irelnad Outreach. The people here are wonderful and the property is gorgeous. The team has not been enjoying the spontaneous rain very much, but they are working through it. We had one very rainy night, but the team kept their spirits up when every tent was flooded and almost every sleeping bag soaked through. They found entertaiment in seeing how much water they could wring out of their sleeping bags. The work projects are underway. The sidewalk leading up to the tower has been dug out and looks as though they will be ready for forms soon. The old shed had been torn down and the spot is now awaiting its time to be replaced by a new one thanks to the team. Saturdays are non-work days here in Ireland Outreach, so the team got to enjoy a scenic hike along the coast of Dalkey and up Dalkey Hill. They also had an opportunity to go into town and purchase different snacks for themselves at the local grocery store. One of the gardeners here in Ireland Outreach has been so kind to provide fresh vegetables from their lovely garden. We have been enjoying fresh salads with carrots and radishes. With it being Sunday today, the team had the opportunity to attend a church service in Dublin. There was not enough room in the vehicled for the whole team so more than half had to take the Dart into Dublin. What a beautiful scenic view of the coast. The team had an opportunity to do a puppet presentation in the church service which the congregation really enjoyed. It is a fairly small church in which I believe the team nearly doubled the size of the congregation. They were so warm and freindly towards the team. We will be returning there tonight for a dinner and service. It is encouraging to see how much the team has grown in the past five days here in Ireland and we cannot wait to see how much more the team will grow in the days to come. The Lord is truly working in the lives of the team. Please keep us in your prayers as we continue the work project, that we would be able to finish it before we leave and that each team member will continue to seek the Lord in His perfect will for their lives. Thank you for your prayers and there will be more reports to come again soon.

    It is so good to hear that the kids are growing and enjoying their time in Ireland. We are continually praying for the teams health, safety and spiritual growth. The updates help us feel connected to all that the Lord is doing there. It also increases our faith to hear about the exciting things that are happening. As I was reading my Bible a passage caught my attention in Pslam 125:1-2 “Those who trust in the Lord are like Mount Zion, which cannot be shaken but endures forever. As the mountains surround Jerusalem,[Ireland, USA, Canada etc.] so the Lord surrounds his people both now and forevermore.”

    How was the flooded tent adventure resolved? Were the tents relocated? Or patched? This is like an exciting TV show, I can’t wait for the next episode! 🙂

  4. It is so wonderful to hear what is going on with the team in Ireland. Thanks for keeping us updated. The Scott family is praying for you all as well as the people of Ireland.

  5. Actually Ireland isn’t part of the UK it is part of the EU I think. N.Ireland ( where I went with TMI last summer) IS part of the UK though. But It is true they really need the Lord up there. Most of Ireland is Catholic

  6. Thank you so much for the post. It is wonderful to hear that the team is growing and that the Lord is working in the lives of the team members. So exciting!! Continuing to lift the team up in prayers.

  7. Thank you for the post. It brought tears to my eyes and joy to my heart! I am reminded how spiritually needy Great Britian really is and how much I need to pray for all those ministering for the Lord there. I was on the Scotland Team in 1983 and we were amazed at that time how small the congregations were in the churches.
    I am not sure if Sean, Sharon, Meagan or Brittany read this, but if you do, please kiss my Rachel and tell her that her Da and Mum miss her tons!
    Thank you for all that you are doing in Ireland and with our children. Your impact will be greater than you will ever know!

  8. AWESOME!!! We are soooo thankful to hear all these wonderful things!! We were missing David a lot today. Dave had to run to Lowe’s about 45 minutes ago. He said he prayed on the way there that there would be an update…I just checked a few minutes ago, not knowing about his prayer. He told me of the answered prayer when I called to him that there was an update!!! God is soooo good!! So glad the team had good spirits regarding all the rain. So sad about the sleeping bags! 🙂
