a picture is worth a thousand words.

... and that's why I have a lot of photos this time. Because to describe everything would take about 400,000 words.

Before I get into the scenic photos of Ireland that everyone sees in coffee table books or calendars at Barnes&Noble, I wanted to give you a little taste of what every day looks like for me.

Here's my office. I was sitting at my desk when I took this photo. Whoever is doing finances for the day, sits at the desk in the left hand corner (on this day, it happened to be Julianne). And the right hand desk is my overseer, Alastair's desk. You can see him in the nook of our office rather than his desk chair.

The OM Ireland family, when we're all together, consists of about 80 people. 80 divided by 12 ... let's see ... that would put us at an average 6-7 birthday's a month. We're always celebrating something. This particular birthday was Anna's 21st, and we hosted it at my house.

The next set of photos are from a 3-day trip up to county Donegal.  I went up there to do some training with a woman who is passing the torch to me. On Saturday we got to do a little sightseeing, so I thought I would share these pictures with you so you can say (like I said, as I stood on top of a mountain) "Ah, now this is Ireland!" (reminder, you can click on the pictures to make them bigger)

I knew Ireland would be beautiful. What great pictures. I'll post some of mine from Ethiopia soon. We got back on Wednesday, Sept. 21. It was the greatest experience of my life. I have never experienced the work of the Holy Spirit in such a powerful way. I can't wait to tell you all about it. Aunt Kathy
