Restoration and Revival in Ireland!

Wow! The team had a fabulous time in beautiful Ballinskelligs, Ireland, combining holiday/team building and ministry in an easy flow praise God! It made us realise and give God thanks for how far the team have come together over the last 2 years, and what diversity, fullness and blessing there is in being a team family. We could never go back to solo ministry.
The people there are amazing with such potential, such generosity and passion for God, we love them and we received from their lives as much if not more than we gave. We'll be back!
Sarah and Elaine shared personal testimony that glorified the God who walks with us through dark and difficult places and brings us out victoriously into His marvellous light, inspiring hope and encouragement in all who heard. One elderly catholic man said it was the best night of his life!
The weekend with Naomi was a blast and a blessing. It is inspiring to see these younger people so on fire and committed - because of love and freedom, not duty. We took them to the lavender farm on Saturday and had the pleasure of Jazz-singer James' voice echoing round the ex-silage tank now greenhouse, giving glory to his Father!
A reminder that a week on Sunday - 8th August, we have the privilege of hosting Grace Community church, and hearing Andrew Leakey share his vision for Revival England. This will be followed by a bring & share lunch, then a dip in the pool for all water-fun lovers! Hope to see you!
