Ireland

Ireland.
Many people think of green hills, rainy skies, and lyrical accents.
But there’s something else.
Ireland is one of the most spiritually bound countries today, in need of hope and peace in the face of rising depression, suicide, and abuses.

Human trafficking is a reality in Ireland. Injustice is a reality.
Ireland is geographically perfect for transit from Africa and the Middle East into Europe via the UK. Ireland is also a destination country for labor and sex trafficking.

But there’s something else.
The Irish are imaginative and creative in an incredible way, unique from other European cultures. They are Western – and yet not. They are their own beautiful nation. Irish friends have told me “Yes, we care about injustice. Injustice makes us angry. But it’s hard for us to make the next step.” Years of abuse, of seeing injustice reign and justice fall away, have brought complacency and exhaustion.

God has called me to live with my Irish brothers and sisters, people He loves. He’s called me to share my passion for justice. But I also realize that before the Irish Church can passionately pursue justice, they have to receive justice for themselves. They have to see healing, to remember how much Jesus loves them.
Justice means something because Jesus means everything!

I don’t know when I’ll be in Ireland…God has told me many times to “wait.”  And I’m learning to be content in that. Still, the day I arrive in Ireland will be one of the best days of my life.
