Tensions in Northern Ireland Arise Due to Post-Brexit Trade Checks

Northern Ireland has long faced serious challenges, and those issues have once again risen to the surface following the UK withdrawal from the European Union.

The challenge has been for the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland to withdraw from the European Union and at the same time not set up any hard border between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland which is part of the EU.

Recently, animal products and food arriving from Great Britain were subject to inspection. Staff doing the inspections were threatened and those inspections were suspended.

Also, the European Union proposed not allowing vaccines to enter Northern Ireland from the EU which would in effect reinstate the border on the island of Ireland that both sides have tried to avoid.

Please pray for the work of the gospel in Northern Ireland. There are many good evangelical churches there, but some are in decline and there are still many communities without a good evangelical church.
