As many of our friends, family and church family know, Joe is on a mission trip to Ireland with a group from Cincinnati Christian University. They left Friday, but were delayed getting out of the Cincinnati airport due to the bad weather. Once they left, they made connecting at JFK and flew to Dublin. The only news we have received so far is a Facebook post that says “I am in Ireland safe and sound. Thank you for all the prayer!” (The picture is one I snagged off his FB and I have no idea where they are or what they are doing.)
It’s a strange feeling knowing your son is in a different country, especially when you are used to sending a text to touch base. I know he was looking forward to the trip and experiencing a new culture. The group is doing a VBS and Joe is speaking one night to a group of teens. Should be a great experience and can’t wait to hear all about it.
