Well now, that was fast! Here we are with 7 full Dash Away Weekends and a Taste of Dash Away behind us. Seems like we just arrived in this beautiful land with a huge assignment ahead. Now, we stand on the shore of reflection, watching the water move, never fully knowing how far the ripples will go, but certain that God moved powerfully - not just in the ladies to whom we ministered, but in us as well.
Last weekend, we were joined in Greystones, Ireland, just south of Dublin, by 10 beautiful, amazing ladies. Let me tell you, these ladies came to worship! My, oh, my! As a worship leader, you have to be careful not to judge someone's level of engagement by their body language. Often there is much going on beneath the surface of which you may never know. However, when you get a group of ladies who are outwardly expressive, dancing, kneeling and singing loudly - even the songs they're hearing for the first time - it is so much fun!!
For those of you who are continuing to stay engaged with the trip by reading our blogs, we send a HUGE thank you! It really does encourage us!
We just finished up Dash Away #28 in Rostrevor, Northern Ireland. Eleven ladies joined us for what was probably the hardest fought weekend as far as enemy push back is concerned. Melinda had some extreme physical challenges leading into the weekend which prevented her from fully engaging. Still, God moved. He doesn't have to come, but He always does. He shows up and changes everything.
