Praying for Alain

As many of you know our dear friend and sister Lindsay Emerson passed on to be with Jesus on Sunday. Her funeral yesterday was a wonderful celebration of a life lived without regret, with a deep love for God and a heart for others. It was an honour to have known Lindsay and to hear of the lives she impacted as the grace and love of Jesus flowed from her life into the lives of so many.
Alain Emerson is a member of YFCNI's National Board. He is such a devoted Christ follower and has an amazing call of leadership on his life. We are praying for his healing at this time. His heart is broken and His body is in anguish and yet we could sense within Alain a deep trust that is in Jesus.
Alain we are praying for you.

Here's that interview!

Hi there, hope you had a great Easter! If you're interested, that interview on the Nolan show that we talked about in the previous post can now be heard online. Sorry for the delay if you were waiting for this, some of us were off on holiday last week. Anyway, it's an MP3 and you can find it here (for info, it's about 1.8MB in size).

Stepping out in faith

Ain't it great what God does when we step out in faith? We bumped into the future First Minister of Northern Ireland recently in a story you can read about here. When we took that spontaneous spirit-led(?)step across the road to thank him for what we believe is a postive step for the future, we didn't know what it would lead to. In a subsequent TV interview Dr. Paisley mentioned the meeting, and confessed that afterwards "he wept" because he had been so moved by it and by the thought of the future for our young people. That in turn led to Steven being interviewed on the Stephen Nolan radio show ("the biggest show in the country!") about the experience and also about his hopes for the future.* It was a great opportunity to put across a positive Christian viewpoint to a wide audience. All because we stepped out across the road!

There's got to be a moral or sermon in there!

* We're hoping to get the interview online. We'll let you know if/when we do.
