What makes Ireland a Christian Mission field? What does it mean to be a long term missionary? What motivates a husband and wife to pack up their family and live in another country for the rest of their lives?
I sit down with Chris & Joi Copeland to talk about being called by God to move their family and their lives to Ireland. Four and half years later they are still preparing to make the move to Galway, Ireland, but they are more motivated now than they ever have been. Ireland may seem like a vacation spot but a history of Protestant and Catholic violent conflicts, abuse by church clergy, high rates of alcoholism, suicide and other difficult issues have had a tremendous impact on people’s faith and impression of “the church.” Chris and Joi are not signing up to go on a vacation but to love any and everyone they get the chance to connect with by being the hands and feet of Jesus.
