What is the best part about working with An Tobar Nua? 

“For me the best part about working at An Tobar Nua is the people. I have never met or worked with such an amazing group of individuals. Each person adds so much, and I immediately felt at home when I arrived. I have learned a lot from the staff here, and have been stretched in my faith just from being around them. I also love the work environment. It’s a blast and always humorous, yet we take our jobs seriously and do our best knowing that it is ultimately for God’s kingdom.”

What is your favorite part about living in Galway? 

“Where do I begin… Galway is the most fun and lively city to live in. There are endless shops and café’s to explore, and it has a nice college town feel to it. It is big enough to find plenty to do, but small enough that you can run into people you know. I absolutely love it.”

What is the most important thing God has shown you during your time with An Tobar Nua? 

“The most important thing I have learned while being here is who I am in Christ. When you are away from all your friends and family back home, you find out who you really are. With no one to define me, I learned more about myself, and had to lean on God and who He says I am. It has been a season of finding my identity, and growing in confidence that God made me uniquely for His own purpose.”

What’s next? 

“At this point I have no plans past finishing my college degree. God is always faithful to show me the next step when the time comes. He led me here, and I know He will continue to lead me other places that will be just as beneficial in the future.”
