As I write this there is no place on earth I'd rather be than drinking coffee at a cafe in Dublin.
My heart is burdened to live out this calling. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy traveling to see churches and friends, but my heart is for Ireland.
I only know a small handful of people there...very dear friends. But somewhere in Ireland I know there are young men or women, preparing for college or already in college, whom the Lord has called.
They have been called to do something great in their nation as a teacher, doctor, musician, politician...they have been called to reach the masses that flood the marketplace, workplace, and commonplace everyday.
All they need is for someone to show them the love of Christ, the ultimate influencer. He is the ultimate friend. The ultimate father.
As I write this I'm drinking coffee on my back porch in Moore, OK, looking forward to being in Dublin.
(More info coming soon regarding our timeframe to Ireland and our budget raising progress.)
