Steve And Lorita Hamer
Steve and Lorita Hamer have been living and working in Ireland since May of 1998. While Steve works full time as a quarry manager, he views his primary job description as being a Christian worker. Lorita is both mother and school teacher to their two boys. As new believers they were blessed by spending six years at Bantry Christian Fellowship in West Cork learning what it meant to be in relationship with God and his people. This was followed by 2 years spent in Dublin, during which God taught them the nature of surrender and service.
In June of 2006 the door finally opened for them to move to Dungarvan. In a step of faith, they crossed the path of a small bible study meeting in Cliff and Ericka's Ballinroad home. They say, "Since then we have been privileged to watch and share in God's blessing as He has grown the church in Dungarvan."
Steve now serves as an elder at Dungarvan Christian Fellowship and Lorita volunteers by teaching the Bible to the children of the fellowship.
