The next two years

Hey guys. Wow, how time flies! Around this time last year I was preparing for my big trip to Ireland. I remember hoping that God would show me what my next step was, but bracing myself that it might be awhile before He would. Well, while I was in Ireland He made it very clear to me that He was calling me there. It was like He was saying to me “Erin, I’m a big God. You can expect big things.” That’s just one of the many lessons God taught me last Summer.

So what have I been doing this past year? Oh, good question. I’m glad you asked! Ever since I got home I’ve been working with TEAM (The Evangelical Alliance Mission) in preparing for the next steps of becoming a Mid-term missionary. I have also been working with my church as an Intern for the children’s ministry. This has been really great in helping me prepare for full time ministry and seeing the ends and outs of how a ministry is run.

So what’s next? Well, at the end of April I was officially appointed as a Mid-Term missionary to N. Ireland! I still have a long road ahead of me before I get there. Honestly I’m not sure all of what that entails. But I’ll find out in the next two weeks. I’m heading to the mountains from the 10th through the 16th for mission orientation. I will learn more details of what the next two years will look like for me as well as how to fundraise and much more.

I’m going to get better at posting here as I go through this journey. If you have any questions please feel free to ask.

In my mind I had shared these photos a long time ago but I’m just now realizing that I didn’t. So here they are.

This is on cave mountain overlooking the north coast. I love this view!

This was at the end of Summer Madness. After the last seminar our group huddled up crying and praying together. It was a time that I will always cherish.

This guy has broken world records on his bike. He uses his story to share the gospel with kids and teens and anyone who will lessen. This kid kept coming back to see his tricks. He was so patient with the kid and took time to show him how to fix his bike and let him ride it.

This was at the hostel where we were staying. I love it!

Some of the guys on our team built a half pipe and were able to share the gospel with the teens who came out to skate it.

Just beauty.

Home safe and sound 

I arrived home Tuesday evening and have been resting for the past day and a half. Thank you everyone for your prayers. I will be posting more pictures over the next few weeks. 

I made it! 

We went cliff jumping yesterday in Howth and it was amazing!!! I’m super sore today but I regret nothing! 10/10 would do again! Tomorrow we start our first day of kids club. Prayers energy is greatly appreciated! 

Sad goodbyes and friendly hellos

I made it here to Dublin! It was hard leaving the north but God is bringing new amazing people into my life who have been so encouraging as we get ready for camp. Yesterday was loads of fun. We took the train to Howth and went cliff jumping. One of the best things I’ve done in my entire life!

Belfast

We are staying at a mansion in Hollywood N. Ireland for a few days to sightsee and recuperate from such a busy but powerful week. Today we did some sightseeing in Belfast.

Still Alive 

Hey guys! So I’ve been out wifi for a while and haven’t been post. But I’m still alive. I Just had one of the most amazing weeks of my life! I’ll be posting more in the next few days.

Jet leg for the win! 

4:30 in the morning and I’ve still haven’t been able to fall asleep! Pray that God gives me energy for the full day ahead as Summer Madness begins. (On a side note: after a brief 5 hours of darkness, the sun is starting to rise!)
