Introducing Andrew and Gillian Shanks for our prayerful interest.
Andrew and Gillian were commended to the work of the Lord in the South of Ireland in September 2005. After spending 2 years in North County Cork they moved to Newcastle West, Co Limerick in September 2007. Newcastle West is a Market town with a population of 6,000 people. The assembly in Newcastle West was established in 1999 and many in fellowship are first generation believers. Andrew and Gillian have two girls Anna aged 9 and Lucy aged 6.
Andrew is involved with preaching and ministry in the local assembly and also conducting some individual home Bible Studies. He is also active with visitation work and both he and Gillian have seen the Lord open up the way in the realm of personal work amongst neighbours, fellow parents at school and locals in the community. They also help run a weekly children's work and Gillian is responsible for a weekly Mums and Toddlers group. Andrew is a trustee of Gospel Literature Ireland. During the summer they are busy in Gospel Work at local agricultural shows and fairs along with national events to distribute Gospel Literature.
