News from Ireland

We are thankful to Almighty God for His Hand upon the 101st Irish National Convention held on Saturday 19th September in Carrickfergus Methodist Church. Once again, we were blessed with beautiful weather throughout the weekend. The Rev Mark Russell, speaking on the theme, “One More Step”, based his main address on Genesis 12:1-9. We, like Abraham, must go where God is leading us, trusting Him every step of the way. More than £4000, was presented to, “Love for Life” – last year’s missionary project – which aims to help children and young people make healthy choices in life. The new project, “Spud Bears’ ministry” was introduced. Spud Bears are solar powered, talking teddy bears sharing the Gospel of God’s love and giving health education such as malaria prevention to children, in hospitals and orphanages, who are not able to read and have no one to read to them. Seniors, Young People and Juniors all enjoyed their own activities during the day. Mrs Rosemary McDaniel was installed as Irish Union President. Her Presidential theme is, “Give us a vision”. Irish Union’s Annual Prayer week was held 8-14 November when Societies and Unions organize prayer times.
