It’s hard for me to believe sometimes, but on November 27th I will have lived in Ireland twenty years. This means quite a few deputations, as well! As I have traveled the past five weeks, I have been so thankful for the relationships formed over the years. I’ve received such a warm welcome everywhere I’ve been. And I have been delighted to form new friendships and partnerships as well.
I am currently in California, enjoying time with family while also visiting supporting churches and friends. Today I had the privilege of speaking to the third-grade classes at our local Friends school during their “missions” week. We talked about what it is like to live in Ireland, the size of “giant domestic spiders” (that is a real thing), why Irish names are hard for us to pronounce, and that being a missionary is mostly about loving people because Jesus loves us.
In the next weeks I will be in California, speaking to churches and small groups. In November I will travel to Ohio for EFM Board meetings, and the chance to meet some new people as well.
Currently, I am at 82% of the recurring gifts necessary to meet ongoing monthly needs. I’m hoping to return to Ireland in early January. This is dependent upon my support level being at 100%. I am so thankful for the positive responses I have had so far. It is very encouraging to me.
There are two ways to support me in Ireland, through prayer and through financial giving. I need and appreciate both!
You can click here to sign up and join me as a prayer partner if you aren’t one already!
If you would like to partner with me financially there are a few ways to do that:
- Donate online on my personal EFM webpage here.
- Donate by credit card over the phone at 303-421-8100.
- Mail a check marked with “Perry Support” to EFM, PO Box 771139, Wichita, KS 67277.
If you are a current monthly supporter, thank you. It is important to let EFM know that you plan to continue or increase your giving. If you are not currently giving, I would ask you to prayerfully consider supporting ministry in Ireland (me).
If you want further information, or would like to inquire about a visit, you can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you again, for the support and faithfulness that I experience every day. You are a blessing to me.
