Had a really stimulating evening yesterday listening in on the Cork Circuit's discussion on the work of God in their area. Wish I could stay longer than one night! But looking forward to celebrating Pentecost on Sunday in South Belfast too.

Wow. Sooooo cold in Dublin this morning (24 April)! But looking forward after a little sleep to meeting the World Church guys from Britain with our MMS (I) people for conversations today and tomorrow. If you are a prayer please pray for us.

Returning today with Robin and Margaret Clarke to Dublin from Somerset West near Cape Town having heard a lot of what God is doing around the world.
