We've made the necessary *click* and have purchased our trip to Dublin this fall!
We've decided to stay in Dublin for this trip - unless the Spirit leads us on a day trip somewhere - and have found an amazing looking hotel in a central location to Dublin city-center and where we've felt drawn to explore. Prices did go down for a short time, but as they started climbing over the last few days, we decided it was time to buy. Praise God we were able to get them and even have half the funds for the tickets/hotel. Never in my life have I had to step so far out in faith against every ounce of my fleshing/worldly wisdom: But I have faith.
Pray for the people we will be coming into contact with in Dublin October 1st - 8th. (We leave here Sept 30th) Also pray as we continue with the paperwork for GEM. Right now we are only waiting for a few references to make their way in and we can get on to the next step. We also need to set up a meeting time in Dublin with WHM leaders. Pray we know the right time to contact them about scheduling this since they are in leadership transition this next month.
I can't wait to be posting pictures on here from Ireland finally!! I never thought it was possible to love a place so much I've never even stepped foot :)
