Monthly Report Summary
We had Abbie with us this past month interning from Living Hope Church in Indiana. The Lord really worked in and through her this month! She came and helped us with many youth events, and young adult programs that we planned for the month of June.

Summer time our schedules really fill up!
We also did a community project helping weed out a Castle garden. The owner of the castle, is someone we feel the Lord has put on our heart to serve, and build a relationship with-in order to plant seeds of salvation. Please pray the Lord softens the heart of Leoni.

We also had the opportunity to share the Gospel message with 3 individuals, one being a young Hindu girl that was visiting Ireland from India. She allowed Larena (my wife) to explain to her about Jesus, and also to pray with her-that she would come to know Him. We saw this as a divine appointment.

Abbie also helped us with worship practices this past month, as we are God willing transitioning into the youth service come August. We are planning to have dynamic Holy Spirit lead worship, a teaching and alter time. We have 12 of our young adults signed up to become leaders to help with this upcoming ministry. This is a HUGE breakthrough since getting people to volunteer their time towards ministry is really unheard of most the time. We see this as fruit of the relationships we’ve built and the many meals shared around our table during our small group meetings.

Another young man visited this month, he is like a son to us. He’s been struggling with his relationship with God. The Lord opened the doors for me to really pour into him, and help him understand the importance to daily time spent in prayer and reading the Word. It was amazing and yet another divine appointment.

We’ve had 3 youth come to us this past month about struggles they are dealing with-one is dealing with pornography, so we are pouring into him.

Another youth girl messaged my wife just the other day, asking her to help her understand how to have a real relationship with Jesus. This is priceless to us!! What an absolute honor to walk beside her in this life altering decision!

Also many of the young adults are starting to open up about trials they are dealing with. Many here are very confidential by nature, so seeing this happening means that we’ve really built up trust in our relationships. We are thrilled and do not take it lightly!

We also have started the conversations about Street Pastors with our church congregation! Praying God really opens the doors for this to become a reality here in Galway!


We witnessed to the young Hindu girl, and prayed for Jesus to become known to her.
We witnessed to two individuals about Jesus and prophetic times, and they were thristy to hear more!
We’ve seen the youth/young adults open up more and more to us. We are so thankful!
We raised our funds for 6 month insurance coverage.

Prayer Requests:

We are praying for 320 euro for our youth camp fee. We do not know where we are going to get those funds and we need them by the 29th. If you can pray the Lord provides, we would be so grateful!!
Please pray we hear back from immigration very soon. We’ve been waiting since March to hear a YES from immigration about our extension. Please GOD!
