As many of you know, we work with Students For Christ Europe and try to network with our colleagues across the continent from time to time. This time, some of them came over to us. Blair and Dina Bonan have done university ministry in Belgium for many years and are now heading up SFC Europe. They do a lot of traveling to various groups, where they see what's going on there and give loads of encouragement, advice, and prayer. They spent a few days with us in Dublin and traveled down to Limerick to visit the SFC group there.
We had so much fun laughing and talking with them. We even got to share my (Katy's) favorite Louisiana food...jambalaya! We packed a bunch of meetings in with other pastors and leaders in the area. It was a time of refreshment and encouragement. We value their wisdom with student ministry as well as family life and we are honored to call them our friends.
Our SFC Europe community has been such a great support to us since we arrived here in Ireland. God, in His wisdom, brings us together to work in community. We are not meant to be alone in our personal walks with Him or in our work as believers. We are better together.
