News from Ireland


This past month and a half we've seen tremendous breakthrough in Ireland!  We give God glory for filling 9 people with the Holy Ghost, adding new family's to the Gilford church, growing our Sunday School & Youth, and for 9 individuals that are currently in bible study. 

Belfast, N. Ireland
The third week of October was an exciting time in the city of Belfast. Belfast is a target city for a church plant, and the Holy Ghost Party was a pre-church launch event. We were privileged to have Pastors Ken & Stephanie Dillingham, Kris & Jen Dillingham, Rodney and Karin Donohoo & Family, and Mark Crowder minister for us during this powerful weekend. We had a Gospel Concert, Holy Ghost Party & Miracle Sunday during these 3 days of ministry.  7 people were filled with the Holy Ghost, saints and visitors received breakthroughs, healing, deliverance, and many contacts were made! We also thank Rev Robert Kelley, the Harvest Bible College students (Scotland), and Rev Banji Sanni Family (Dundalk) for joining us and adding extra fire power to this weekend. This event has helped lay a foundation for what is about to take place in this beautiful city of near 1 million people.

We ask that you and your church would pray for a divine door to be opened as we are currently searching for a permanent location to begin services in January 2015 in downtown Belfast.

Pastor James Stark:
We were blessed to have Pastor James Stark (Calvary Apostolic-Columbus,OH) with us in November. Testimony: We prayed around Belfast City Hall one Saturday morning asking for favor in Belfast City. Pastor Stark asked that God would show us favor from an individual in city hall. When we went inside, the security guard unprompted struck up a conversation with us and offered to give us a private tour of the building. We were taken inside the proceeding chambers and other rooms that are off limits to the public. As we sat in the deputy mayor's chair in the proceeding chamber we prayed for favor in this great city. I'll be seeing the security guard again very soon. Bro Stark ministered in Gilford for our Sunday service. Alice's (one of our Portuguese ladies) husband Carlos was there for the first time. As we prayed, God healed him of an eye problem. We also give God glory for filling Debbie with the Holy Ghost!
