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

One Year

It's hard to believe we've been here for one whole year! Yesterday, St. Patrick's Day, was our one year anniversary of living in Ireland. I still remember those first moments leaving the airport like it was yesterday.

Here are a few highlights of our first year in Ireland.

  • Des & Eimear picking us up at the airport. 
  • Two great months in Limerick with the Enget family, Pastor Kevin, & the Abundant Lifefamily. 
  • Moving to Dublin and joining our St. Mark's Church family. 
  • Meeting great new friends at St. Mark's Church. 
  • Finally got used to driving on the left side of the road. 
  • Going to Germany for SFC Europe's Connect Conference with Sarah & James. 
  • Found our favourite chipper in Dublin. 
  • Getting to know students & friends at Chapel Group, the CU at Trinity College, & Agapeministry. 
  • A great friendship built with Julian Hamilton
  • Our first Thanksgiving in Dublin with family & friends. 
  • Our first event on campus as Students for Christ Dublin. Link
  • Our first Christmas in Dublin with family able to fly in.
  • Getting the news of our first child. 

It's been both one of the greatest and toughest years of our lives. We count ourselves incredibly blessed by the opportunity & journey that lies before us. We wouldn't be here without your prayers and support. Thank you.

Here's to many more years!
