While St. Patrick’s day does provide one with the opportunity to attire themselves in green and eat a hearty meal of corned beef and cabbage, I would like to offer a additional suggestion for today. I recommend that you do two more things along with the festivities of the day.
- Check out the website of my good friend Billy Welsh. Billy is a church planter to the country of Ireland. He is currently on deputation with his wife Lauren and son William. If you are a pastor and looking for a good family to come and present their burden, I recommend this family. Billy has a tremendous testimony of God’s grace. He is a veteran, having been in the Marine Corps for eight years, and served in the Iraq War for three years. Lauren was brought up in a Christian home and saved at the age of 18, and surrendered her life to missions that same year.
- Pray for Ireland. Ireland has 4.5 million people. They are 88% Roman Catholic with only 2% of the population Evangelical Christians. Islam is growing rapidly in the country. Ireland needs your prayers!
