Ireland Mission Update

I thought I would update you real quick on my daughter's mission trip to Ireland. She left on OCtober 20th & will return November 1st.  We are getting tidbits of info via Facebook from her & others on the team.

They had a successful Carnival for the community of Galway. It rained, as it usually does, so they hoped for maybe 60 people & instead they had over 100!  They were so excited by the turn out & had a wonderful time.  They brought wigs with them & wore them during the Carnival...crazy Americans!

Yesterday they had a chance to take in some of the sights & rest up before they led a marriage conference.  Sarah's role during the conference is to team up with another lady & keep the children occupied by doing different activities & Bible stories with them.

Before they come home they will host a Family conference at an old Irish Manor for the familes of the Galway Church.  They did this last year & had a wonderful turn out.

Keep praying for the team.  Pray they will get plenty of rest before each event & that the Lord will work in a mighty way in the lives of the Mission team & in the lives of the people of Galway.
