Stories from Ireland

God snagged my attention

“I did a lot of thinking and praying. I thought about my fears, my hopes and dreams for the future. I thought about my fears about my hopes and dreams for the future. I let whatever emotion come that would come,” says Hannah. “I let the tears come if they wanted. Only the sheep, fields and river were there to see them. I let any – and every – thought come up, pouring it out before God…and then I left it there for Him to take control.”

Ploughing with the Big Red Bus

After years of the team dreaming, the Big Red Bus finally joins the National Ploughing Championships during a windstorm.

Christmas with a capital 'C'

“Christmas isn’t just a day, though. It’s a season, a feeling, a thought process that brings us to the realisation that we are small parts of a much larger picture. In the middle of the hustle and bustle, shopping, wrapping, giving, sharing, laughing and caring are we focusing on the right part of the season? Where are our hearts?" wonders OMer Hannah.

Pub prayers for revival

“Looking around that pub at the various people enjoying their tea, I started really thinking about what he’d said,” Hannah remembers. “Praying for revival…In a country that many have come to learn is spiritually dark, have we given up on praying for the people? Has the belief in revival died, or are we still trusting that God can move in a mighty way?”

They ran for the bus

“I can’t remember the last time I ran (physically or metaphorically) because I was so excited about something,” shares OMer Hannah. Can you?
