An IDEA for St. Patrick's Day!

St. Patrick's Day is almost here.  It's a celebration that reaches beyond the shores of Ireland all around the world.  Many will wear green, eat Corned Beef and Cabbage and drink beverages, some that are green in color.  It's a great day to think, pray and reflect on Ireland.

St. Patrick's Day is named after the man who was used of God to bring the gospel to the Irish people.  He came and walked among the people of Ireland and many lives were transformed. 

On this St. Patrick's Day would you make MISSION: Ireland a part of your celebration.

ONE
Pray for the nation of Ireland, it's leaders and it's people.
Pray for the church in Ireland, that we would be the incarnational representatives of Christ in this land.
Pray for us, Stephen & Annette, as we seek to minister in this nation, planting the Church of the Nazarene.

TWO
Give to missions in your local church, allowing them to participate in the Great Commission.
Give to MISSION: Ireland HERE!
Give some food to a local compassionate ministry.

THREE
Invite a neighbor or coworker to share a cup of tea, or other drink... share life together.
Reflect on St. Patrick's call to walk among the people of Ireland, and ask God who he is calling YOU to walk among!
Wear GREEN to church the next day and invite others to join you in praying for Ireland.

May God bless you & may God bless the people of Ireland.

Steve & Annette
