Reflection from Momo
Psalm 30 vs 12:“..I will sing your praise and not be silent, O Lord my God I will thanks to you forever”.
God has been faithful to me. Who is like him, who took me thousands of feet above the earth flying like an eagle, and carry me thousands of miles from my seashore to another land? I will not be quiet for the Lord is glorious. God favored me in Ireland, I was loved, cared for and accepted by all of the people that came in my path. The Ireland visit was a time of meeting our sponsors, friends and those who have shown interest in the work in Liberia. For me my journey to Ireland is summed up as a beautiful country with loving people it was truly a refreshing time for me. To God be the glory, great things he has done.
Reflection from Frances
Philippians 3 vs 13-14: “Brothers I do not consider that I have made it my own, but one thing I do forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead. I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus”.
We are starting afresh, we have re-grouped and it is daunting, sometimes terrifying. I have to take encouragement from Paul’s words, his emphasis here on moving forward to what lies ahead. The yesterdays are gone, the familiar, the victories, the disappointments and the failings. None of these things should derail our focus on what lies ahead. I want to finish well and fulfil God’s purpose and plan here on earth for my life. So, if you are finding yourself in a new situation and maybe sorrow fills your heart from time to time as you reflect on the past, take some comfort and courage from God’s word today and embrace the future.

Reflection from Momo
Psalm 30 vs 12:“.. I will sing your praise and not be silent, O Lord my God I will thanks to you forever”. God has been so faithful to us and to keeping His promises.
Work started on the compound 12 months ago and now I am living here. We thank God so much for His provision and His perfect timing. We had to leave our existing compound and indeed would have been homeless. God has a timetable for every part of our life. Praise His name.
Reflection from Frances
Jeremiah 29 vs 11: “For I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord, plans for welfare, and not for evil to give you a future and a hope”
As many of you know I have been struggling with health issues concerning my heart and I thank God I am now stable and on the right medication. A big thank you also goes out to my local gym BMS in Bundoran were they are trained and qualified in Cardiac Rehab. God’s provision is sometimes in the unlikeliest of places and he certainly provided the team there especially Patrick to get me active again restoring my quality of life. I have been studying the book of Ruth with fresh eyes during this period. It was indeed timely as I read about the losses these women experienced and their journey in trusting God despite their challenging circumstances. Faith is trusting God’s sovereignty when we are in deep despair, lonely or abandoned, our story is in His hands. As Ruth and Naomi’s story unfolds so does Gods plan and purpose for their life. Fresh hope and restoration arises out of the ashes of their brokenness. It is a lesson in never giving up and keeping trust in a God who has a plan and purpose for each of us.
