And yet another update (still no internet)

It is amazing how much you take for granted having internet in your house. While our family would gripe a bit about having only 1.6 Mbps to split among 5 people, we have discovered that 1.6 is much much faster than 0.0 Mbps which is where we currently are. According to the phone company and […]

It is amazing how much you take for granted having internet in your house. While our family would gripe a bit about having only 1.6 Mbps to split among 5 people, we have discovered that 1.6 is much much faster than 0.0 Mbps which is where we currently are. According to the phone company and our broadband company, the phone line is broken & will not be fixed.

At this point our options are:

  • get a satellite service (and pay set up charges now & when we move this summer…a bit pricey too)
  • get it through our mobile broadband (not great service at our home)
  • or wait and see if service starts in our area soon (rumour has it fibre optic is coming this month…but who knows)

We still aren’t sure we’ll do, but in the meantime, we are hanging out in free wifi areas way too often.

In our last update, I mentioned that Liz & Méabh had just left for NY to see their dad & that I had an interview coming up. Well, Liz & Méabh are back. Her dad is doing better, but we are still asking people to be praying for him.

As for my interview, it went well enough where I have been invited back for a second round…again, prayers are greatly appreciated.

Lots more going on, but need to head home so Liz & I can head out to a meeting at the girl’s school tonight.

Until next time…

What about Bob?

I grew up in Western New York and have started and led missional church planting efforts for a little over 30 years. As you might gather, I have opinions about the church, and I share some of them here.

Malin Head is a two-hour drive from where we are staying in Donegal, but I have wanted to visit for a while. So, we get to the top of the hill, looking for a place to park, and people start waving at us. There was a thought that perhaps they were signaling that we...
