The wind blew us away from the big city of Paris to this amazing view! We landed at the Cliffs of Moher in Ireland. The cliffs overlook the Atlantic Ocean. There were so many birds! The sea birds make their homes in the cliff face. Their high nests give them easy access to food in the sea and keep them safe from predators.
While we were in Ireland we heard about Saint Patrick. He was a Christian boy in England. When he was a teenager, he was taken from his home and family and brought to Ireland as a slave. While serving as a pig keeper, he gave hope to his fellow slaves by sharing about the love of God. One day he had a chance to escape and returned to England. He did not forget the people of Ireland though. Patrick went back, this time as a missionary, and shared the Love of Christ in Ireland for the rest of his life. It is an exciting story from the history of Ireland and Christianity.
We loved hearing stories of Saint Patrick here in Ireland. Maybe the wind will be right and we can see where he grew up next month!
