Opportunities for Mission
Our Seventh-day Adventist Church has committed to a mission which includes a worldwide humanitarian work, an international volunteer program, satellite television and shortwave radio blanketing the globe, a huge publishing program, thousands of schools, a large network of hospitals and clinics, the Global Mission pioneer program, and hundreds of overseas missionaries.
What about its mission in or from Dublin 15, Fingal County, Blanchardstown?…
Let’s review some opportunities for mission.
1. Youth Mission Trip to Dominican Republic.
In February 2019 a new trip will be organized in Central America. From Dublin West we plan to have one missionary – Joana. Axel’s wife, a young nurse, she is volunteering for Cuisle Centre. An account to our treasurer has been opened. Anyone who wants to help is welcome, as we make efforts to cover the trip expenses which would be around 1,000 euro.
If you ned a reminder and inspiration, watch a report, pictures and videos of the 2018 trip here:

2. Hope in the Darkness, Dublin.
For more than a year now we are helping homeless and poor people. While Dublin West gives every quarter loads of food, clothes, and other items, the Romanian Church helps with 100 sandwiches every Thursday night.
If you are not aware of our efforts, please read the article Greetings from Gadara. Our latest delivery to them happened following the Thanksgiving Day.
While delivering the good, the pastor and an elder were challenged by Sinead Kane, the leader of Hope in the Darkness: what about you guys spreading the table one or two Saturdays in a month? It means preparing food and hot drinks for more than 100 people. It’s quite about our number… Once a month feed the poor.
Would we accept the challenge?
3. Prophecies fulfilling as part of the Great Controversy.
We all know one of our best resources for the times in which we live, the book Great Controversy by Ellen G. White.
Adam, our Croatian brother in Dublin West along with others secured thousands of copies ready to be distributed. The plan developed into preparing a booth, a poster, going to the market place, being in the midst of people, on the streets of Dublin. The purpose? To give a good and balanced testimony to people around us…
We need people to pray, people to testify, money to buy books and other materials. We need support.
Would you be part of the project?
Your mission while in Dublin West
Through the years, Seventh-day Adventists have generously supported mission through their tithes and mission offerings because they believe the gospel commission. They believe we’re called to help the less fortunate, the poor, the sick, and those who don’t know about Jesus.
In Dublin West we all know about other missionary helps given toward various projects in Europe (Moldova), Africa or Asia (Philippines). Some are helping locally, in Cuisle Centre or on different private (unseen) projects. God bless them all.
But, if you (we really mean YOU) are interested into helping, volunteering, why not meet us on an afternoon Sabbath – 8 December in Dublin West. That is when we will talk, pray and get inspired. Plan to be there!
The story of Adventist mission around the world centers not on the story of highly-educated super-Christians performing exceptional feats. It’s the story of everyday people who answer the call to touch the lives of others in the name of Jesus. And it’s your story, because you can help make it happen.
