Ireland MOVE Update 5

Posted: Friday, August 09, 2019

We can’t say it enough, this week at MOVE in Ireland has been incredible. Our Engage team has jumped in with two feet and so many have shared about their encounters with Jesus and the Holy Spirit. God is speaking and moving and changing our hearts. 

During the morning session we watched the film, Unseen. This was produced by CIY a couple of years ago and was filmed in Limerick, Ireland. The film is on the subject of mental health and suicide. Suicide is at the top of the list of the ways young people are dying here in Ireland. It was impactful to show this film here. 

We had a gorgeous afternoon and played group water games and competitions during MOVE Splash. There were bounce houses, slip n slides, water balloons, small kid pools, and lots of water. The teams were mixed together of Irish and American. Everyone had a good time both competing and just being silly. Those shared times of laughter and fun are memories that can’t easily be forgotten. 

In the evening we had another powerful session of worship and singing and feeling the presence of Jesus. Several more people went forward to give their life to Jesus for the first time or to rededicate and get their life back on the right track. 

The night ended with a big celebration of the work God is doing here and we heard stories from some of the young people and sang worship songs. Th night ended with a big dance party! What a day!!
