Special Thanks

Mountains of Mourne Hiking ; 
August 2021

11 August 2021

We would like to extend a very special thanks and blessings to Matthew Mulrooney and his team of Anne-Marie, Marguerite, Aoife and John-Jo who tackled an incredible challenge as a fundraiser for Hope Counselling.  On 11th August ’21 the team set out at 3.00 a.m. in order to cross over 15 peaks in a hike over the Mountains of Mourne in N.Ireland.  Although their climb was cut short because of bad weather and unsafe conditions, they experienced a huge blessing from the Lord as they climbed. 

“Those who wait for the Lord (who expect, look for, and hope in Him) shall change and renew their strength and power: they shall lift their wings and mount up (close to God) as eagles (mount up to the sun); they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint or become tired”.

                Isaiah 40 : 31 (amplified)

“Those who wait for the Lord (who expect, look for, and hope in Him) shall change and renew their strength and power: they shall lift their wings and mount up (close to God) as eagles (mount up to the sun); they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint or become tired”.                Isaiah 40 : 31 (amplified)

In Matthew’s words he had been reading these words in Isaiah and he chose to pray it as a blessing over the team.  The result was that he felt the Lord made the climb easy and that he felt the  

 

strengthening of the Lord throughout. We had been praying for their safety and so were really glad to know that report about God’s hand of blessing throughout. 

They raised €1575 in their amazing endeavour, for which we are really grateful!!  This will be used in subsidising our counselling department and supporting those who are struggling with poor mental health. 

Thank you so much for your sacrifice and love for Hope Trust
