24 May 2017 – Men’s Group


The men’s CBS Bible study group that Sam attends in Ireland celebrated the end of the study year with a pizza night. Jono, a chef, has built a pizza oven in his garden patio and taught us how to make our own pizzas. Fortunately he had already prepped the dough, but we each had to roll out our own. I couldn’t believe the pizzas only took one minute to cook … that was one hot oven! We had 10 members this year studying the Gospel of Matthew.

22 May 2017 – Dinner with Leaders


As the study year was coming to a close, Sam & Patti had a wonderful dinner with the ladies who lead a daytime Bible study group in Donabate. We ate at one of our favorite eateries, Stoop Your Head in Skerries. Antoinette and Ann have about a dozen ladies in their group this year, most of whom are from other countries.

May Holiday with Rutmans


We took off a week in May for a holiday with CBS-Ireland founders Tim and Cathy Rutman who are house-sitting for some friends in Skerries, Ireland. We went to the West Cork area and enjoyed some lovely days with just a little rain. We say a lot of sights and visited a waterfall in County Kerry that was quite robust due to recent rains. It was a great, refreshing break from a busy season.
