Enniskillen GO Team 2008

Just a few snaps really as I’m off to Dromore in a minute and we were busy entertaining our new minister and his family yesterday :-) (Obviously, the longer he goes without finding out about SWS, the better for all concerned!)

A brief run down of the week: Saturday – leaflets, Sunday – first ever Enniskillen RP church service! (well, for a very long time), Monday – leaflets, Tues – leaflets/show, Wed – show, Thurs – Marble Arch / BBQ, Fri – home (and Bible readings Sun-Thurs evenings)

Cameron and Elyse – Leaflets were given out to the 6,000 homes of Enniskillen

Hugh and Betty came every day and helped us

On the Tuesday I got into a debate with a guy in the most nationalist housing estate in Enniskillen about what my city is called. However, not being sponsored by the Ulster Scots, I was the one arguing that I could call it ‘Derry’ if I wanted to!

A lot of uno was played. And a bit of Phase 10, but it required too much thinking for most occasions. Don’t think anybody got further than phase 5

On Tuesday night, me, Andrew and Peter went to the presentation of the call, while the rest of them got started at the Enniskillen Show. Of course, we all expected it just to be the presentation of the calls and we didn’t expect we’d actually be getting an answer on the night!

The phone networks were red hot afterwards!

The team’s main role at the show was to do craft with children (all craft items of course coming with bible verses on them!) while the members of the home section tried to talk to people who stopped at the stand.

Please join our chruch

Wednesday night was of course the long awaited night of Neil’s party, but of course it would just have been mad to go to it, especially seeing the Bible Reading only started at half 8. However here are some pictures of it anyway.

These are all from the after-party – no pics of the party itself seeing it was basically finished by about 11! And we thought we’d be fashionably late!

On Thursday, after a g prayer time, we went to the Marble Arch Caves – we had been going to take some of the church kids but they weren’t able to make it.

Long John Silver – our guide may have been wondering why the first time she said millions of years we all laughed at her…

Then we went for a walk to see the Marble Arch

The Marble Arch – yes, that is actually all there is to it. The caves are named after that!!!

Please continue to pray for the work in Enniskillen as they try and establish a church there.

Did I mention I now have a minister?! :-)

  1. Hello,

    I’ve been having a look at your posts on exculsive psalmody – i have a question is it ok if i add it here since the comments are off on the relevant posts? Sorry it’s a bit random!

    Basically it was about this snippet which you’ve got inside inverted commas here
    http://www.shallwesingasongforyou.co.uk/?p=247
    – and i was just wondering if it’s a quotation from somewhere? (& if so where?!)
    ‘A circumstance must be something necessary (or essential) to the performance of the commanded element in worship. In other words, the circumstance must be of such a nature that if it is not carried out the element of worship cannot be performed’.

    thanks!
    Cath
