Some of you may be reading this from snow-covered wonderlands, but it’s raining today in Youghal. Yesterday there was some snow on the ground when we woke up, but it didn’t last long. Before the snow even showed up here in Youghal, the government had closed all the schools in Ireland until Thursday (the country was almost out of salt for the roads). Now that things have warmed up, they changed their minds and some schools have re-opened. Students are not happy.

It was cold. The pipes froze in the building we usually meet in for church, so there was no heat or water. We met in a house and had warm, close fellowship.
