Fifty People, One Question

This was filmed in Galway, Ireland in November 2010.

I think it says a lot. Wouldn't it be interesting if we did this in October? Hmm... I have a question in mind, but what do you think it should be?

Coffee Fundraiser

Now you can drink great coffee AND help support us!

A local coffee roaster here in Murfreesboro, TN is partnering with us to help raise funds for our trip this fall. Below is some information I posted on a Facebook page. Please click HERE, or on the link at the top pf this page.

All coffee is organic and Fair Trade when possible. The decaf is water processed which uses no chemicals! All beans are roasted in the store in Murfreesboro, TN and sent out fresh.

Proceeds that go to us out of each purchase:
Coffee: $5 each
T-Shirt: $5 each
Travel Mug: $3 each
Tote Bag: $3 each
Hat: $3 each
Coffee Scoop: $1 each

Matthew 28:19, Acts 20:32, Romans 1:5
These verses are dear to us.

God has called our family to go to Ireland to help mature and encourage people in a relationship with Jesus Christ. The Republic of Ireland is around 90% Roman Catholic, with most of people claiming it only because they were "born that way". There are only 1-2% Evangelical Christians there with both the Church of Ireland and Muslims greatly outnumbering them.

This fall, we will be going to Dublin to meet with different mission organizations, to pray over the city of 1 million+, and to love on the people. This is the first step for us in moving over there. Please join in the work God has called us to do in this highly religious, grace impoverished nation.

Doors and Windows

We are now in contact with another mission organization about the work they are doing in the Republic of Ireland as well: One Mission Society

We were sent a video they made about the spiritual state in Ireland as well. Take a few minutes to watch!

Please pray that the Lord will make it clear how we are to make it over there and which organization we should work with. God has confirmed over and over (...and over-again!) that Yes, He has called us to go there. It's just a matter of timing, which window He wants us to just look through, and though which door He wants us to walk!
