It was our Last Sunday at Church in the Peak today…

I’ve been there ten years, ever since I was saved and Chris has been there about 5 1/2 years. They’re my/our family. They’ve been with me/us through all sorts of life changes and us with them. That’s probably why we still feel part of it, despite the fact we’re going to Ireland on Friday.

Another reason (the main reason) is that Scripture says that God sets the lonely into families (Psalm 68:6) and so he did with me and Chris and continues to do so with many others. All you have to do is ask as he also says “ask and it will be given to you, seek and you will find, knock and the door will be opened”. (Matthew 7:7). He is ready and eager (not just willing) for you to ask him in. Try him.

So, back to church this morning. It was great and very moving. They prayed for us, we were given words from God (God speaking through people), which were very reassuring and we have gifts too and an amazing card! So generous. Saying goodbye was such an honour. So again, thank you. You sent us off “proper”.

Which one is it?

So we’re feeling slightly confused this afternoon, we’ve realised (or we think we’ve realised) that there is a Ballinaglera and a Ballinagleragh, both look as though they are in Leitrim. We “think” ours is the Ballinaglera, (by Lough Allen) that is how it has been spelt so far, but Google maps seems to think it is Ballinagleragh! But I think that’s wrong. Then, on further googling, there are descriptions of the place which have both spellings! aaargh, help! (I find it amusing but confusing). If anyone can enlighten us that would be great! I’m sure it will become clear at some point. I thought we were quite close to the border (closer than we are) because I googled the distance to Enniskillen (which is in the north) – sorry edit! to Kesh, Enniskillen, and suddenly thought Chris could work there because it wasn’t as far away as I thought. Turns out it was about 27 miles away, not 14 as I’d thought, so probably no good, although still fairly close.

It is interesting this moving lark! Especially moving to a different country!

24 days to go!
