Hello CU people! My name is Márcio, I'm a brazilian student and I'm going to study in Ireland for 1 year, starting in 02/08 by Science Without Borders, a brazilian exchange program. In Brazil, I participated actively in ABUB, the IFES brazilian students group. So, I'd like to join CU in Ireland and meet CU people as well.
As I've never been in Dublin or Ireland before, I need some help to learn anything that could help me to live in Dublin. Since buses to restaurants, and CU meetings. If anyone can help or meet me in Dublin whenever possible, please tag them here, I'll be very grateful.
Really thanks! God Bless you all. Hugs from ABUB :)

Had breakfast with Ivan my Belarussian colleague. No common language but enough communication to tell me that two of the students I spoke to at length in Belarus in November have become Christians. #rejoicingwiththeangels
Learning a lot from chapters 1 and 3 of Daniel which we have been looking at during the World Assembly. Familiar passages to all of us, but gaining some fresh perspectives on it. One of things that stood out to me in particular: Daniel asks the official to be allowed to not defile himself with the kings food: he had no reason to expect any kind of understanding or kindness from this man, Daniel and all the Jews were now the Babylonians 'property'. And yet he asked anyway. How often do we avoid seeking to be allowed to live out our faith when it conflicts with our culture, or avoid speaking to someone about the gospel because we think we know what the answer will be? Feeling challenged to not allow my own fears to cripple the work God can do through me, however small the effort may seem. God granted Daniel favour in the eyes of the official, and we can trust His Spirit to be at work in the people around us as we live for Him boldly in our own context. #wa2015
