It’s time to say good buy. Luke Murray, our youth leader, has left in August to study at the Moody Bible College in Spokane, USA. This week Esther Stevenson is having her last week in our church. Next week she will be moving to Edinburgh to study at the Faith Mission Bible College. Both were very much involved in the life of the church and we will miss them a lot. But we are also proud to see them leave to be prepared for ministry. We wish them God’s blessing and grace for their future and will keep them in our prayers.
But it’s also time to say Hi. Tuesday, September 6th, the new American students are arriving in Ireland. Stefanie Borden and Ryan Robins will be living in Greystones for a year as part of their education for missions. They are following Dustin Wine and Hannah Beers, who were with us until this summer and who pioneered in the 365M program of Nazarene Theological Seminary, Kansas City. We look forward to meeting them and welcoming them to our church family. They will be working alongside our missionaries Stephen and Annette Morley but also helping in our church with the youth. We wish them both a good start in Ireland and welcome them to our church.
