Northern Ireland Salt Factory 2 Update 1
Posted: Saturday, July 20, 2019
Hello from Northern Ireland!! Our whole team made it in today, even with travel hiccups that caused our group to arrive on different flights. Nonetheless, we’re grateful for the safe travels and your prayers over us. We got settled into our home away from home in the dorms at Belfast Bible College and were able to meet the crew and staff with Salt Factory Sports. We’re excited to spend the week with them and join up with how they’re sharing the Gospel to young children through the sports clubs. While waiting for the last of the team to arrive in country, most of the team spent the afternoon in Belfast going to a museum that has lots of Northern Ireland history. Our first time all together as a team was at dinner and then shortly after gathered to briefly do more introductions. Fighting jet lag is no joke so the goal today was to stay away until at least 8pm, so that also meant an early night to bed.
It’s surreal that we’re actually here, together as a team. So many moments of preparation and prayer and fundraising have led up to this time and I know without any doubt that God put each person on this team for a reason. Looking forward to seeing how that plays out this week as God works in us and through us.
We’ll write and share more tomorrow. For now, it’s time for a good night’s rest.
