Mark & Lona Webb
Serving in: Killarney, Ireland
Grace Baptist Church

Hello!  We are your workers in Ireland. Vista Grande sent us out after 17 years of ministry at the church. God called us to Ireland and we moved to Killarney, County Kerry, Ireland in July 2011. We are with an agency called Crossworld. We work with Grace Baptist Church, in Killarney, which meets in a national school.  It is a Catholic primary school. Mark is the elder of the church and responsible for the pastoral duties, including preaching and teaching.

 

Our main focus is to reach into the community through friendship evangelism.  We get involved in the community in different ways. This allows the locals to see us as a part of their community and builds trust with them. Lona has been a part of the Killarney Musical Society in previous years, has taken courses at a local school for adult learning classes in the evenings, and takes private voice lessons from a well-known local singer. Mark was in the Killarney Camera Club for a few years but has focused on walking groups the last two years. He walks with a Tuesday evening group and about once a month with a Friday walking group. This has prompted many conversations and some have attended services. Since Ian has been in the local schools since 2nd grade, we have had good connections with both local schools, including the primary school allowing us to use the building for Sunday morning service and Wednesday night Bible study. We are also involved in the Munster Christian Camps (MCC).

 

Ian is now 16 and in 5th year of secondary school (equivalent to 11th grade).  He hopes to enroll in IT-Tralee (Institute of Technology – Tralee) to study animation in autumn of 2021. Madeleine will be 25 this year, completed her studies at the Cork School of Music in 2018, and is currently working at the Killarney Cinema. She is exploring the opportunity to teach English in Japan.

 

We are supported by churches and individuals.  If you would like to be a part of our ministry team in Ireland, through prayer and/or financial support, please let us know.  We send out a weekly prayer letter and a monthly newsletter.  For financial support you can either give through Vista Grande or directly to our agency, Crossworld.

 

Thank you for your prayers, encouragement, and financial support over the last 9 years. God bless.
