Update of recent events in the South of Ireland for the prayers of the saints.

Gort is a small town in South County Galway, about 30 minutes from Galway city. The town doesn't boast a huge population, but what it does feature is a large Brazilian community, with up to 30% of the population being Brazilian nationals.

We have just returned recently from another trip to Gort in the South of Ireland. This time our son David took Jean's place with me. He did all the driving during the four and a half hour journey. He enjoyed speaking to the people in their native Portuguese language, He was brought up in Santarem, Brazil with our two girls, and was a good help also in the distribution of the Calendars, CDs, and Tracts. Our daughter Shirley now McKillen is working down in Gorey full time with her husband Michael just South of Wicklow.

As on previous years, we were very well received, and we had no refusals to the gospel materials from the Brazilian immigrants living there. They are so open to receive Calendars, CDs and Tracts in their language.

Jean's health has deteriorated in recent months (She has had Parkinson's disease now for over 21 years !!) and is now very much dependent on her medication and confined to her wheelchair, so David kindly offered to take her place for this outreach. We would very much desire the Prayers of the Lord's people that we might see the "good seed" of His word bringing forth fruit to His eternal glory in the Salvation of precious souls. May the Lord continue to bless you during this New Year in His service, all for the present.
