Ireland – Final thoughts
I am sitting in the Atlanta airport. Not quite sure how I am awake since I have only slept 4 hours in the last 2 days, but I am so excited about all God did in N.Ireland and what I was able to experience while I was there. I am certain that as the week goes on I will continue to process the last 8 days, but in this moment there are 2 quick highlights that are stirring my heart. * these are in no particular order1. My Irish Inner Circle: Anya, Kate, Judith, and Pastor Rachel Scott
The amazing thing about our campus in N.Ireland is that some of my closest friends live there. In the last 2 years I have built relationships that will last me the rest of my life. It’s like my Irish inner circle. During this trip I was able to hug them, kiss their faces, encourage them, and glean from their wisdom. I am so thankful to have such MASSIVE women of God to sharpen my life. It’s such a beautiful example of how global our church is and how we really are ONE church with many campuses. There are no borders, sisterhood is everywhere and no matter where I go God has placed life rafts in every part of my journey.
2. Sisterhood Night Group Bethany and I had the most amazing group. It was such a humbling opportunity to speak in to the lives of our Irish sisterhood.
I do not take it for granted when people allow you to speak into their lives but it was pretty amazing to spend time with them. It was also such an honor to partner with my friend Bethany Baird. She is a classy lady, and her passion for the youth and for the lost is so inspiring — that night goes down in the history books.
I’ll blog again soon, but I have to board my flight.
Love you all, thank you for all those who have been praying for us. I’ll be home soon.
