Christopher and Laura Johnston, TMCI Missionaries to Ireland

Christopher and Laura Johnston, TMCI missionaries to Ireland,

Number ministered to:  60,

Number saved: 8.

We had the 8 youth give their hearts to Jesus this past month! What an awesome night that was! 3 of our really wonderful youth leaders have gone back home now that the school year has ended. We will miss them. This is the time of year where we start seeing loved ones travel back home, and saying goodbye is never easy. Please pray the Lord sends new leaders this fall, when we will be needing them most! We are focusing on fundraising for Youth camp in July. Many of the youth can’t afford to go to camp, so we are having fundraisers to get them funds to be able to go to this life changing week—they meet the Lord in such a deep way. We are praying all our kids that would like to go; will be able to go. Also praying for our leaders to be able to go, because it’s just as good for them, (if not better) to have them there, as they learn so much in leadership skills. We continue to have our small groups every Thursday night where my wife cooks a meal and we all share discussing the Sunday morning teaching and applying it deeper into our lives. We enjoy investing and building into the lives of the next generation here in Galway!

PRAISES

Praise God, we had 8 youth give their hearts to Jesus last month. I did a 3 part series on Jesus and our need for a Savior. We’ve had new youth start coming about 5-6 months ago, and we’ve been praying for their salvation, and the Lord lead me to give this message. It was the biggest response we’ve ever had since we’ve started Torch last August! At this point, we’ve now seen 14 youth come to know the Lord in the past 2 years!! Praise God!! We are thrilled, as that was the end of the school year so now we will be going into more friendship building events in TORCH for the summer months. Praising God for such an amazing end to the school year!!

Prayer Requests

Thank you for praying for our needs concerning the car/my schooling ext from last month. Thankfully the Lord provided for us, and He even opened the door for funding for my wife’s doctors appointment. We are 1/2 way to the mark now! Please pray the Lord will put us on the hearts of others to team up with us. We recently lost a few monthly donors, and we are praying for the Lord to fill that need. Please also pray for my wife’s stress levels. She has been having health issues and they are trying to find the root, but her testing came back that she is stressed. Thank you for praying! Please also pray for strategies to reach more Irish youth, and middle aged Irish in the church. We are seeing a gap in these two areas. Pray the Lord gives us ideas that will reach them for His glory!
