LAST DAY IN N. IRELAND


Today (TUES) we went out to get Irish fry for breakfast. This plate consists of soda bread, potato farl, mushrooms, baked beans, a fried egg, a pancake, bangers (sausage) and rashers (bacon, Canadian style), and black pudding. Don't kquite know what all that is? Me either but it sure tasted good!

(1 Tim 4:4) For every creature of God is good, and nothing is to be refused if it is received with thanksgiving.

DUNLUCE CASTLE

We then drove to the north coast of Ireland which is a famous spot for sightseeing. We first drove over to Port Elizabeth...a quaint city overlooking the Irish Sea. Then we drove over to see Dunluce castle dating back centuries.

VIDEO OF GIANT'S CAUSEWAY

Giant's Causeway is N. Ireland's number tourist attraction. It has these rock formations formed by a volcano long ago. It reminded me of how creative God is and how He has left His wonders for us to behold and enjoy.

(Psa 96:3) Declare His glory among the nations, His wonders among all peoples.

RICK AND CINDY HAVING A GREAT TIME AT GIANT'S CAUSEWAY.

Rick and Cindy were so much fun to be around for a week and were great hosts! Cindy is a great cook and their house is real cozy. This picture should be an advertisement for missions and defys the serious and stuffy characterization of missionaries of the past.


(Psa 100:2) Serve the LORD with gladness...

After touring Giant's Causeway we drove over to the city of Ballycastle and had fish and chips. Here is a beautiful historical church in town. It's the state Church of Ireland which is associated with Anglicanism, the predominant Protestant church of the United Kingdom. Let's pray for Ireland to know the difference between religion and relationship with Jesus!

(Rev 3:20) "Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me.

Lindsay and I had a great time together. What a blessing to be able to come over for her graduation and then to travel together to visit ur GO! missionaries in N. Ireland.
+++++

Well, we fly out tomorrow from Belfast and will be home tomorrow night. Thanks for following Lindsay and I on our trip and thank you for your prayers. Looking forward to seeing your at the Christmas Eve service! As they say in Ireland...HAPPY CHRISTMAS!!
