If one church is too loud, too charismatic, too boring, too old, or too young, next Sunday you simply drive down the street to another one. Even churches among the same denomination with essentially the…

Holiday Bible Club Fun

Thanks to our awesome volunteer team (who didn’t really have a choice because they are teammates and interns…haha), our Holiday Bible Club went super smooth each day!

The Sun Will Come Out…

…Tomorrow! That’s the hope of most of us here in Ireland. If you haven’t noticed, Ireland has a pretty bad reputation when it comes to the weather. When you say the word Ireland, yes, people do think of beautiful green scenery, but then they also think of the clouds and rain that make it that…

Northern Ireland

Earlier this month, we had the unique opportunity to visit Northern Ireland. For those of you who may not know, Northern Ireland is not just the northern part of Ireland.
