Blake and Katy's journey to reach the students of Dublin. 

Our Boys

Our boys both have summer birthdays. Eli turned 2 on June 14th, and Eden turns 5 on July 12th. I'm so proud of these boys and who they are becoming. I know it's just the beginning of their lives, but I'm overwhelmed daily with joy and love in them.

I can't express how much I've learned about God our Father from being a father myself. I'm often reminded of the lyrics of Reckless Love when thinking of my little dudes.

"No shadow You won't light up, mountain You won't climb up coming after me. No wall You won't kick down, lie You won't tear down coming after me."

If I feel that way so intensely about my two sons, how much more does God feel that about you and me? It's a humbling realisation and a life-changing revelation. I pray today you feel His love for you...the love that will ALWAYS get to you when you need it most. 

Happy birthday boys. I love you more than life...Daddy.

Let God Lead

If God is for us, who can be against us? I (Katy) am reading an abbreviated biography of William Wilberforce. As most of you know, he was the man responsible for beginning the movement to end the British slave trade. Before he was about to begin the most intense battle of his life in Parliament, he received a letter from his friend, John Wesley. He read:

“Unless God has raised you up for this very thing, you will be worn out by the opposition of men and devils. But if God is for you, who can be against you? Are all of them together stronger than God? O be not weary of well doing.” 

It would be crazy to do ministry without the call of God on our lives…as crazy as it would be to continue in ministry without first seeking His voice and hand in our situations. The encouragement is this - while we wrestle with spiritual oppression, the God of the universe fights for us. With him leading the charge, we cannot expect anything but victory. 

So, let’s let him do the leading and we’ll be faithful to follow.

Getaway

We are having a mini holiday for the next few days! We have been blessed with a holiday home near Waterford. As we rest and enjoy family time, we will be praying about our visa issues. We are asking the Lord for encouragement and strength. 

We are so thankful that we can be transparent with all of you guys as we walk through the different seasons of life in cross-cultural ministry. Please be in prayer for us, and if you have any prayer requests or needs, we would like to pray for you too!

Thanks so much for being a part of this team!
