Misty Morning

This is the view from our back door. The Suck river creates a beautiful scene, the swans and waterfowl complete the picture on most days. This new hotel has been an attraction to many in Ballinasloe. We pray that God will "burn off" the fog from hearts and reveal the clear Truth to all.

Our new grandson, Ezra

Holly and Olivia traveled to the Czech republic to help out our daughter Phoebe. Nehemiah played with his Teta ( aunt in Czech). Ezra is a good baby and a blessing to us all!

Horse Fair Follies

The Fusion Youth group celebrated the Horse Fair by dressing in a Disney theme. We had fun with a trivia contest and watched the fireworks over the riverfront downtown, after we changed of course! Pastor Gary spoke to us about the unlimited grace God has given us.

Easter Breakfast

Food, fellowship and fun! We were blessed to have tables full of friends at our Easter breakfast, which was followed by our Resurrection Celebration. We had a time of personal testimonies and a powerful messgage on Christ's sacrifice from I Cor. 15. Our church family is growing spiritually and numerically by God's grace.

Resurrection Day Celebration in Ballinasloe

The Ballinasloe Thursday Club sang and did an Easter puppet show at a local nursing home. We all enjoyed the event.

St. Patrick's Day Teen Party

We rented a local facility to host a youth outing on St. Paddy's Day. We tried our best to do some Irish dancing and played games. Gary was able to give an inspirational message on the life of St. Patrick. He challenged the teens and asked if they would be as willing to go and teach in a foreign country as he did. Gary quoted one of Patrick's prayers that showed his dedication and love for Christ. He reminded them that we are all saints in God's eyes if we have accepted His Son as our Saviour and Lord. The blood of the Lamb paid the full penalty and we have full access to God.

Lambing season in Ireland

We have been helping our friend Frank with his new lambs. What a joy to see these precious little ones and hear their bleating for mom when separated! We have remembered the scripture says, " all we like sheep have gone astray". We need a loving gentle Shepherd to guide us through life. As we learn more about sheep we see how vulnerable they are to disease and predators. The Shepherd is willing to lay down his life( and have no sleep) to accomplish the goal of caring for his flock. His dedication has been an inspiration to us!
