I am so proud of my niece and her husband.  They have been working with Young Life in Franklin, TN........and last year, God began to lead them to go to Singapore to work with Young Life.

They sold their home and most of their possessions.  He gave up a great job and she gave up her Nurse Practitioner job.  They left their church.  They left their friends and they left their family.

Three months ago they boarded the plane in a huge step of faith, taking their two children (1 year old and 2 1/2 year old)...and traveled to a different culture.  A place where EVERYTHING is different....but the same.  The culture, food and transportation is completely different, but the young people's hunger for God is the same.

I would like to ask you to PLEASE put them on your Prayer Lists.  They KNOW they are where God has led them, but even so.....during the holidays, it is very lonely to be away from family. 

My daughter made them a sign and we had it sent to Singapore.

Missionary:  (noun):  A person who leaves his family for a short time so that others may live with their families for an eternity.

(They left a mom, dad, three grandparents, sisters & their husbands and a brother......not to mention a host of other family and friends.)

I am posting pictures so you will have faces to pray for.  Their names are Nick and Danae Ireland and the boys are Bennett and Jackson.

Thank you in advance for your prayers.

Even Christmas is different............it is summer all the time!
