Well, I thought I was going to be able to sit down and write this blog yesterday (Monday), but we all decided to take a trip out to Killarney and go see the Gap of Dunloe, and Ross Castle. Both were worth the effort! The Killarney mountains were beautifully snow-capped, and the group from Hot Springs Arkansas were easily impressed with the view! In a flash, Joel and Cameron, Joshua, Bro Buddy, and even the three girls were headed up the side of the Gap! The girls made it half-way, while the boys pressed on up a 45 degree incline! It was kind of cool, and the wind made it even cooler, but we enjoyed the short trek in the Gap of Dunloe!
After the trip of the Gap, we risked traveling to the Ross Castle to see if it was by chance open, and behold, it was both open and taking tours! The woman giving the tour was really a blessing and spent a lot of extra time with us.
Let me bring you up to date on the Revival Meetings so far. Buddy Blunkall, his wife Phyllis and three Champion Baptist Bible College students all arrived Saturday afternoon of course, as planned. I had planned on taking the mini-bus to go pick them up from Shannon airport, but at the last minute, the bus just would not start! I guess that the -5 deg celsius weather might have had something to do with it! The Lord worked it all out anyway! That evening, the prayer meeting was so awesome! God was busy working on us, readying us for this week!
Sunday was a full day, with all three meetings well attended, and the Lord showing His people how He was going to work on our hearts! Sunday evening’s meeting was the best so far, but that was just the beginning! Last night (Monday night), Buddy preached on believing Faith, and it was just excellent! If you are in the area, you just have to come along and experience the great preaching, and singing and fellowshipping for yourself.
By-the-way, I actually met someone yesterday that had read this blog! Wow! I was very surprised, since this is just an experiment. I hope it helps some people get a feel for the Christian ministry that goes on here in Cork, Ireland!
