2009 Ireland Missions Trip Day 5

May 23, 2009 • By

Today the team hiked up the Hill of Slane to check out Slane Abbey, a great site where St. Patrick himself established a church.  From it you can see for miles around.  While the team was out hiking, I decided to get some laundry done.  It took me 20 minutes just to figure out how to open the dryer door!  I’d swear that, when I took my clothes out of the dryer, they were more wet than when I put them in.  They are all currently hanging on the oil heat registers throughout the cottage.

Tonight we had the privilidge of ministering at the Emmanuel Community Church youth group.  It was great!  I talked to them about prayer and we all called on God together for our friends and families.  The church is down the street from the famous St. Patrick’s Cathedral, a massive structure that has to be seen to fully appreciate the scope and breadth of it.

It was a muddy hike.  Bethany lost the sole of her shoe.
