Very inspiring.
I am listening for the still small voice and it is hard to wait. I will fill you in when I find out where I am going. I think you have great courage, and I am encouraged by it. A new land, a new people and daily challenges. I always ask that God show me my path, and I often wish that it were clearer. One step, two steps, on we go with only faith to guide us. We can't ask for the entire map, but it is good to know that you are getting such clear affirmations. I am happy that we reconnected, so that you could inspire me.

Your blogs share your wonderful adventures, but more importantly they confirm what I already knew. You are a brilliant, compassionate young man. Remember Dudley’s catfish and bring your wife down someday to introduce her to that treat.

family history
Hi Brian, My Uncle Tom was stationed here in WWII. You are the only other person I know who has ever been there. I admire you for going, and think that you are brave to go so far away from home. I know that God walks along with you and holds your hand, so you are never alone. I look forward to following your blog. Best, Barb

It's a small world huh
Or maybe Tori and yourself just have a very large presence in it. Still, those are some crazy moments that always blow my mind. I miss Tori, she was always a fun one. And you as well of course, hopefully we can remedy that soon. Until then, Slainte

A bit of fog can't veil true love
What a grand experience, and how romantic. I do appreciate how you spent paragraphs describing the cliffs and fog and two lines to describe the proposal. I'm sure that it was too momentous to be put into mere words. Also, that castle looks pretty fantastic. Maybe someday I will have more money than I know how to build castles with.

Our Irish Experience
Brian and Abigail- Congratulations on the wonderful news. Concerning the fog and the nasty Irish weather, I cannot resist the temptation to gloat a bit. When we did the Ireland tour, they were having a spell of dry weather. I think we might have seen a partial morning of showers. The rest of the time was bright and sunny. All of those sights are really nice in the sunshine!!!

Brian, Your comments about Ireland have been superb. When we visited Ireland several years ago in the summer, the country was in a period of very little rain. I believe it only rained once or twice in about 15-16 days and then very little. We also noticed how friendly the people were. Everyone was willing to stop and offer help. There was not an unfriendly Irishman on the island.

Sorry about all the rain. Glad you're making new friends. :) I really do enjoy reading the tales of your journey.

I love that you're blogging again. I had no idea you were in Ireland. You write exceptionally well. & you are kind of funny... Enjoy the rest of your trip!

Common Themes
This may sound slightly ignorant, but if you replaced the bush knives and fist throwing with money and bribing, the situation you experienced has some similar characteristics to demographic selection in the U.S. More white men want into a university than black women, so the white men threaten to cut funding (bribing or knife threats), which is met by governmental action (political backlash or fisting). Only in the U.S. there is not a mediator to discuss the disputes, and unfortunately the money wins. A bit of a stretch I know, but at least it has some humorous aspects. Anyway, I can't imagine being in that situation with such violent threats being thrown around. It makes you question how you act on your own beliefs and opinions, and whether they you would hold true to them when life is on the line. It sounds like individuals their really support actions followed by beliefs, which may partly explain why missionaries have success their, but not in the U.S.
