the summer of 1996, while working in Florida, I met a man from Northern
Ireland. After inviting him to church, I found out that we had no
United Pentecostal churches in Ireland. He then invited me to visit
his country for one month.
my feet touched the shores of Ireland the Holy Ghost quickened me
and I knew this was where God had sent me.
January 1997 we received our AIM appointment to this country. Then
in March 1998 we moved our family to Ireland. At that time we started
holding services in a "wee old barn" outside of Belfast.
May of 2000 the Lord provided funds for a property outside of Belfast.
With the help of many wonderful churches in North America providing
money and labor we were able to dedicate our new building in August
our dedication service we experienced a mighty outpouring of the
Holy Ghost. This event seemed to give us a momentum in the spirit.
Then in the fall of 2001 we started our Purpose Institute Part-time
Bible School. In these settings there was a constant flow of the
Holy Ghost as we taught and engaged in intercessory prayer, Apostolic
Doctrine, Apostolic Authority and the original structure of the
church. In the summer and fall of 2004 we saw an awesome breakthrough
in the spiritual stronghold of this country. At this time we are
enjoying the rewards of this breakthrough in our services.
March 2004 we received our Intermediate Missionary appointment to
the country of Ireland.
the burdens and prayers of men like our late Rev. James Dallas/General
Superintendent UPCGB&I, Rev. Cletus Sullivan and the help from
so many North American pastors, we would not be where we are today.
