12 Unforgettable Moments from Ireland

It’s hard for me to believe that it’s already time to leave Ireland! The past three weeks have flown by… Here are twelve moments that I will never forget from the time we spent here:

12. Praying together nearly anywhere and everywhere. Here a group of us are praying on the top of Bray Hill on our last day in the country:

11. Being taught how to fish from a local Irish fisherman:

10. Driving through the Wicklow mountains, including Glen-da-lock and Sally Gap. Ireland really does have 10,000 shades of green:P1000648

9. Dozens of amazing conversations while distributing pamphlets with scripture throughout the country. The past few weeks, our teams passed out more than 30,000 pamphlets and hundreds of magazines. It’s been encouraging to see people respond to this literature already! Here Charlie and I are standing with a woman that we met on the streets of Dublin that we bought groceries for:P1000587

8. Listening to my favorite band (Needtobreathe) play in a small underground concert venue in Dublin:

7. Early-morning runs with Katy on the seacoast of Ireland. I’m convinced that there’s no better way to start the day than a good run:P1000536

6. Waking up on the beach on the coast of Ireland, then taking a morning swim in the waves. Pretty much the best day ever:

5. Seeing the transformation of the property after many hours of sweeping, weeding, and spiffying up. Here is Team Doulos in our work attire:

4. Getting the chance to hang out with young traveler children, and teaching them a bible lesson on David and Goliath: Snapshot 1 (7-29-2012 5-39 PM)

3. While driving down the highway, pulling over to investigate an old caravan, then being offered a ride in a horse-drawn buggy down an old Irish road:

2. Hiking up the side of the Cliffs of Moher, which is seriously one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever visited. Day in and day out, God’s creation continues to awe me. I’ve decided that the Cliffs of Moher should be one of the seven wonders of the world:

1. Playing worship music in the flat of Dublin one afternoon and seeing the atmosphere literally transform before our eyes – five women gave their lives to following Jesus! Read more about this story on my blog post hereP1000774
