I had never been in Donacloney until last Tuesday evening.

Wikipedia tells me some interesting facts about this village in County Down, N. Ireland:

Donaghcloney or Donacloney (from Irish: Domhnach Cluana, meaning “church of the meadow”) is a small village and townland in County Down, Northern Ireland. It lies on the River Lagan between Lurgan and Dromore. In the 2001 Census it had a population of 972.

Donaghcloney is a typical Ulster village linked to the Irish linen industry since 1742. The most recent Ewart Liddell company was formed in 1973 by a merger between William Ewart and Sons … and William Liddell and Company… Their factory was the biggest Irish linen, Jacquard weaving company in Ireland, and made the linen for the RMS Titanic.

I was there last Tuesday evening invited by Adrian Moffett, the minister of Donacloney Presbyterian Church, to talk about Bible translation and mission at their Tuesday Fellowship. I don’t know about them, but I drove home very encouraged by their reactions, their words and their prayers after my talk.
