Things are good here with a few minor problems.
My doctor has diagnosed a prostrate problem that could be quite serious so I have an appointment with a private specialist on Wednesday. Please Pray.

It is still very cold here in Lancashire, but I am enjoying it.
Looking out of the window and seeing the Penine Hills covered in frost is a great start to the day.
Yesterday I took a train ride to Scotland. I went to see the vehicle I have been watching on ebay and with little hard work it will fit the bill perfectly. It is much smaller than the bus but will be much easier to maintain and keep clean.
All the finance is not yet in but I would hope that all the money ewill arrive into the account before I go for it on wednesday or thursday next week. If "YOU" want to be part of the vision it is not too late to donate and get me moving towards the kingdom in a new truck.
Saturday 27th of November 2010 08:57:39 AM
Chilly with sunshine is the weather here in Bolton and I am really enjoying the break.
Still searching for the right vehicle to continue the work. I have seen one on ebay that seems to tick all the right boxes but I am praying that all the money will be in the account by next monday to go up to Perthshire in Scotland.
With a little work, the Mercedes Motor mome will be able to give me a greater degree of comfort and will be far less expensive to run and maintain.
If you look on ebay.uk and register Mercedes RV Motorhome in the search panel you will find a grey van with two black stripes selling at £15,000. I have got the price reduced and I hope to go and see it with John from Weston super Mare early next week. Snow Permitting.
The workshop at the rear will be turned into the ministry room when in Scandinavia.
Thursday 25th of November 2010 02:08:45 PM
I arrived in the Bolton area yesterday to spend a few days with my Doctor and his wife. Rob and Sara have made me very welcome.
On the way I called to see an American motor home. I was wrong when I thought they would be capable of doing the job. The one I saw was very tatty and would not take the roads of Scotland never mind the ruts of Finland.
My friend John in The Faroe Islands told me not to bother but to look at a Mercedes type of camper. He was correct! and I now have my eye on one in the London area.£12,000 pounds is desperately needed if I am to get it before it is sold. I pray the money or a one year loan becomes available in the next few days.
Tuesday 23rd of November 2010 09:39:56 PM
I am still in Weston super Mare and spending a lot of time checking out mobile homes. they are all beyond a price I can afford.
Finance has come in from people but it will only get me another vehicle that is very old like this one I am disposing with. It is costing money to stay here and I am not doing anything to earn anything as I cannot get out onto the road.I leave for Lancashire tomorrow for a few days. I pray that finances will arrive in time or the work will stop alltogether in a very short time.
Sunday 21st of November 2010 09:05:07 PM
My dear friends John Ellis and John Lawrence have taken me under their wings and I am being treated like royalty. Dining out each day and taking plenty of rest is really doing me good.
I have to pay to park the bus but it is on a very secure site that is locked up at night.
Today John Lawrence and I are going out to look at mobile homes in this area.
I need to find the one that will be strong enough to do the work, yet will give me the comfort I so desperately need. I am sorry to say it, but I am beggining to feel my age and it will be good to be able to relax.
I am so pleased that The Web Master put Pay Pal on the visitors page. But no one has used it yet.
Finance is at a standstill but I keep on praying!
Friday 19th of November 2010 09:18:55 AM
Praise the Lord I am back in Weston super Mare and the long journey is completed.
I give thanks that Heidi is once again back to translate my words into Finnish for my friends over there.
The work is now at a standstill until sufficient funds become available to buy a fresh vehicle. I have seen one that I like but it is only 26 feet long but will certainly do the work I require of it. I pray that the people in Scandinavia will somehow help to buy the mobile home as I spend more than 9 months a year travelling their continent.
I need the full amount of money by the end of next week or I will have to move into lodgings as my personal finances will run out by then. I still need around £15,000 pounds to get a vehicle that will be more reliable and easier for me to drive.
Please pray as to how YOU can help.

Viimeinkin olen laivassa matkalla kohti Harwichia.
Merenkäynti on rankaa ja minä nautin matkasta. Olen vain onnellinen kun myrsky raivoaa ja meren aallot ovat kaaoksessa. "Se on kuin olisi työssä". Mitähän Jumala on suunnitellut minun seuraavia päiviäni varten?
Tuesday 16th of November 2010 08:41:52 PM
At last I am on board ship and heading for Harwich.
The sea is rough and I am enjoying the trip. I am only happy when the storms stir up the waves and all around is chaos. "It is just like being at work"
I wonder what the Lord has planned for me in the coming days?
Saturday 13th of November 2010 10:00:06 PM
After a horrendous journey I am now in Denmark. The snow in Sweden was too much for me so I did the thousand mile journey back to catch the boat. My time in Sweden was a true blessing to me. I spoke for three evenings and was truly blessed.
The snow was soon cleared but the roads were a nightmare. As I approached the Swedish - Denmark border the wind began to blow. Lorries, cars and busses littered the side of the road as the wind caught them and blew them over the hard shoulder and into the ditch at the side of the road. I even saw a lorry loaded with bricks in the ditch.
I have got to the ferry in Egsbjerg in time but the boat is cancelled due to the worst storm of the year. I should sail on saturday.
The steering is getting worse and my arm and shoulder are in agony.
The ministry of the bus will finish when I arrive in Weston Super Mare next week, but the finance for the new vehicle is still well short of the amount required. ( I wonder if it is retirement for me? )
Friday 12th of November 2010 11:02:46 AM
When will the bus problems stop????????????
I arrived in Denmark ready and raring to get to wotk. At Fredrikshavn I noticed an oil leak from the steering servo and knew something had gone wrong. The boat I should have caught refused to allow the bus on board because of the severity of the oil leak. A mechanic was called out and after a very short time he took £250 off me and told me the problem was solved.
Because of the boat company refusing me carraige I had an extra 1,000 kilometres to drive to reach my destination in Sweden. I drove for 11 hours before taking a break. When I resumed my journey three hours later I found I had no power steerng. The leak was still there.
I arrived at Hudesenta with just 30 minutes to spare before I was due to preach.
Today I was at a garage and they diagnosed a loose pipe that was allowing air into the system. They tried but could not fix it. Tomorrow I go to a bus garage in Uppsalla and pray they can put it right. I am trying to save for a fresh vehicle and this one is just eating it up.
Last night and tonoight I have been speaking in this area and finding very rich blessings from wonderful people.
Please pray for a miracle with the bus.
Monday 08th of November 2010 11:25:42 PM
My latest newsletter has really caused a stir in the right direction. Up to now I have only received one message telling me to give up the idea of going to Russia but many emails of encouragement to go.
The bus has now been fixed and I hope to sail for Denmark tomorrow evening.
When you leave this page please log on to the pictures page and then click on "Northern Lights" for a viewing of the Aurora Borealis which were witnessed in Hofn on my recent trip to Iceland.
My camera did not work but thanks to Steve Winsdale and his friends I met whils't there we can view the snaps they took.
If you have not yet read my newsletter! you can click on the newsletter page to find out all about the vision the Lord has given me.

I woke up this morning to a very cold bus. The rain never stopped last night and I had collected a full bucket of water from one of the drips in the roof. This was onto my settee, more buckets are placed everywhere I can see water.
The electric fuses had blown because water had dripped into the electric heater I use. All is now working but the storm continues.
Hanus spent hours yesterday fixing the oil leak but when I started the bus this morning the oil was still flowing.
This bus has done tremendous work this year but I am afraid I may have driven too many miles with too many Gospels.
No matter what happens!!!!!! This bus has certainly paid for itself many times over.
Sunday 31st of October 2010 03:40:22 PM
How I thank those of you who have helped me in the last few weeks as things have been going so badly for me. For those of you who have contributed financially I cannot say anything but thank you for your trust and support. Things are still very hard here.
I could not catch the boat last night due to a very serious oil leak from one of the engine fittings. I pray it will be sorted out over the weekend and I will sail with or abandon the bus next week. I am just very tired of the problems.
As I write this note, I am surrounded by containers catching the constant drips from the roof. The rain is exceptional, even for the Faroes and gallons of water are dripping onto the settee and all my clothing is getting very damp.
" But" I still Love and Trust Jesus.
Friday 29th of October 2010 12:45:39 PM
Things have improved here and I look forward to leaving the Faroe Islands tomorrow,
The engine has an oil leak and I pray I can get it fixed in Sweden. I expect to be in the Sandviken Gavle area by Sunday and weather permitting to head for Finland before the snow arrives.
The cost of transport on the Norrona has doubled and now costs almost £1,000 for a single journey to Denmark from Torshavn. This means that I will not be able to return to these beautiful islands until Snyril Line learn some economic sense. They seem intent on bankrupting themselves by pricing themselves out of the passenger market. I feel so sorry for the people of the Islands because the government is subsidising a company with a death wish.
Wednesday 27th of October 2010 11:57:35 PM
The snow cleared over the weekend but has now returned.
Much prayer has been answered and I am feeling more hopeful for the future.
My friends in the Faroe Islands have rallied round to help. Food has been brought and gas supplied for the calor gas heater. Gordon Martin and his young son Petur have loaned me a van to get out and about and finance is beginning to arrive.
Please continue praying that the bus engine will be fixed and that my overdraft with the bank will be cleared soon.
Hanus the mechanic should arrive this evening and I hope to give a more positive report tomorrow.
Many thanks for the very positive email response to encourage me in these hard times.
Monday 25th of October 2010 03:26:25 PM
The snow has gone at last and even though it is still very cold I am managing to survive. Thank God someone brought me a meal last night as I had not eaten for two days.
The bus is still not working, the engine runs but the water overheats and we are waiting for gaskets to stop oil leaks.
My trip to Iceland did not cost me anything " Thank God " but the bus condition on my return has caused me great distress. My bed and settee were saturated from the constant rain and I have had to buy a fresh computer in a very expensive country. My other one got waterlogged as I had placed it under the bed for safety. This has taken me to the maximum of my overdraft and my pockets are now totally empty.
I pray I can leave here on thursday. I have NO transport and feel like a prisoner without chains and this is causing distress for me.
I ask you to PLEASE PRAY that out of this very desperate situation something good will come.
Saturday 23rd of October 2010 03:04:35 PM
At last I am back on the Faroe Islands.
The engine is in the bus but it is still not working properly. Hanus worked really hard when I was away but friends who offered to help did not turn up. I pray the problems will soon be resolved.
My living quarters have a bad leak in the roof and I was greeted by a totally soaked bed and green mould on my pillows. The computer had also got wet and no longer works. I have now used up ALL my money buying a new computer.
I often wonder what I need to do to have a normal life like everyone else.
I am still parked in Kampstal and it has been snowing since I returned.
If the problems can be resolved I hope to leave here next thursday and weather permitting will head for Sweden and Finland before I return to the UK in December. I have to be in Northern Ireland by January first.
Wednesday 20th of October 2010 09:04:53 PM
I am now on the Westmann Islands and getting ready to fly to the Faroe Islands tomorrow.
It has been a time of relaxation and much joy for me to return to Iceland and renew friendships with so many people.
I was taken for a never to be forgotten trip on the ice of the glacier and really enjoyed the experience. Two days have been spent around Godafoss and the village of Geysur.
I have taken many photographs which I will put on the Iceland pages next week.
The Northern Lights have been unforgettable and will remain a treasured memory for me. I hope to put photographs on the site very soon.
Sunday 17th of October 2010 11:18:08 PM
I have been told that a meeting will be held in Rekjavik ( Iceland Capital City ) this evening. The aim is to stop the distribution of the gospel in the schools of the city.
This means that if the resolution is past this evening, The Gideons will be banned from New Testament distribution in Rekjavik and eventually throughout the whole country. Please Pray and pass on this message.
Monday 11th of October 2010 08:57:13 PM
I really do believe in miracles.
At last I am having the pleasure of reading messages from some of the people who read the website. I am sure you do not know how much these short passages mean to me as I travel the road of Isolation in the remote areas of the world.
Iceland has been great for me and I have had time to Rest, Recover and get much closer to the One I Love " Jesus "
I arrived in Hofn yesterday ans spoke at the little pentecostal church. I was made to feel so welcome and afterwards was invited out for my evening meal by my old friend Steiner. One of the church members owns a hotel here and I have been given a room for two nights. It is pure bliss to sit in the warm and watch TV in the english language. I love The Discovery and National Geographical programmes.
I leave here tomorrow and head towards Westmanna where I expect to speak on sunday.
Hanus tells me that he has begun work on the engine. He drove the bus to the garage and informs me that He does not know how I have ever driven it with this engine. He tells me that it is a miracle that the bus got here. ( I drove it over 60,000 Kilometres in Finland and Lapland. Isn`t GOD good.
Monday 11th of October 2010 04:11:30 PM
The trip is turning into a wonderful blessing for me as I continue the trip around the difficult terrain of Iceland.
Vopnafjiorder was a real blessing and I was made ever so welcome there. A settee was made available in the church hall and use of the kitchen. Warm and Cosy with true christians.
I left there yesterday and took the coast road over the mountains to Egilsstar.
The road was bad and the gradient was 1 in 10 for around six kilometres staight up and the same going downhill with many tight bends. Not for the fainthearted to travel.
I have been put up with friends at the Bible College until Sunday morning when I travel on to Hofn.
I KNOW that people are praying because I can feel the blessing as I travel.
Last night the Lord gave me a spectacular light show as I watched the Aurora Borealis dancing in the night sky and as I watched the show of lights ,shooting stars zoomed across the display.
It is Good to SERVE.
Friday 08th of October 2010 04:44:04 PM
All going well but the weather has turned nasty, the roads are lousy and the nights are really long when I have to sleep in the car. I normally manage a couple of hours before I wake up with cramp from the lack of space.
The engine has arrived in The Faroe Islands and should be installed over the next weekend.
I am enjoying myself here as I travel the pathways closest to creation with Volcanoes, Sulphur Springs, High Mountains and Glaciers. It is really an incredibly beautiful country. Yesterday I was bathing and swimming outdoors at Myvatn in the hot springs there today I have arrived at Vopnnafjörður to meet up with Christians for prayer.
Tuesday 05th of October 2010 02:39:05 PM
The prayer meeting in Fugljorfjordur on wednesday was a real treat with quite a good number attending. This morning Peter and Johannes are being baltised at the church. They are 14 years old and good boys! Please pray for them in the coming days.
An engine has been found in Denmark and should arrive in Runavik tomorrow for fitting whils´I am away. Please pray that all goes well for Hanus as he fits it.
I am now in Iceland and travelling the road all the way round, praying for the people and the country as I travel. The weather is very good and I can just manage to sleep on the back seat of the hire car but wake up with cramp.
The currency situation here is very bad and things are really expensive.
Internet access is not good but I will update as I can
Sunday 03rd of October 2010 02:27:21 PM
Bussin korjaaminen on minulle jatkuva painajainen. Moottori toimii, mutta on väärän kokoinen bussiin. Se ei ole tarpeeksi vahva liikuttamaan näin raskasta ajoneuvoa ja öljyvuodon korjaaminen tulee kalliiksi.
Uusi moottori on ainoa järkevä ratkaisu ja minun ystäväni Hanus koettaa hankkia sitä minulle. Minulla ei ole mitään ajatusta siitä, mistä saan tarvittavat rahat, mutta taas kerran luotan Jumalaan ja Hänen kansaansa, heidän kautta tapahtuvaan ihmeeseen.
Viikonloppu Suderoyssa oli fantastinen ja nyt yhä useammat ihmiset rukoilevat työni puolesta. Täytyy myöntää, että joka kerta tullessani Färsaarille, rakastan heitä siellä enemmän ja enemmän.
Olen huomannut, että monet ihmiset seuraavat työn edistymistä kun kuljen taivaallisessa johdatuksessa. Miksi sinäkin et rohkaisisi minua kirjoittamalla jotain Visitors atrium-kohtaan?
Se kestää vain minuutteja mutta antaa minulle tunneiksi iloa, kun rukoilen jokaisen puolesta joka on jättänyt sinne rohkaisun sanoja.
Minusta tuntuu usein, että ponnisteluni sivuston ylläpitoon ovat ajanhukkaa, kun tarvitsen lepoaikaa.
Thursday 30th of September 2010 11:26:46 PM
The repairs to the bus are a constant nightmare to me.
The engine is working but is not suitable for a bus this size. It is just not powerful enough to pull the heavy weight I demand of my vehicles and the oil leak is still proving very elusive.
It has been decided that a fresh engine is the only practicle solution and my friend Hanus is trying to trace one for me. I have no idea where the money will come from but will once again trust in the Lord and His people for a miracle.
The weekend on Suderoy was fantastic and many more people are now praying for the work. I must admit that each time I come to the Faroe Islands I love them more and more.
I have noticed that many people are following the progress of the work as I travel onwards towards the Heavenly Shores. Why don,t YOU encourage me by writing something on the Visitors Atrium?
It only takes a minute to do and gives me hours of pleasure as I pray for each person who contributes a few words of encouragement.
I often feel that my efforts to maintain the aite are wasted as I need time to rest. ( Come on and stop being shy )
Tuesday 28th of September 2010 10:50:05 PM
Weather a little chilly with rain and sun.
I have spent two days sleeping and reading as I try to recover from the heavy year. My friend has called to check over the engine that was fitted in Finland. Serious problems have been found including a bad oil leak and the engine block is badly cracked. I was told the engine was fully reconditioned but it looks like I was totally misinformed and the engine is not in very good condition. There is nothing I can do about it but feel very betrayed by the garage in Kuhmo.
Tomorrow I leave for Suderoy to preach on sunday and on the first of October I fly for a two week trip around Iceland meeting up with old friends.
Friday 24th of September 2010 11:38:26 AM
After a hard drive across Denmark in gale force winds I caught the ship Norrona for the Faroe Islands. Due to bad weather the ship was six hours late arriving in Egsberg and insread of sailing at 3pm it was after midnight before we left the berth.
I could not get a cabin to myself and found it a very trying time after such a hectic summer as I could find no where to relax and be alone.
I met many friends on board so was short of company.
Each time I sail with Norrona I take a supply of the Gospel of Luke in the Faroese language and give them away to various people. I also leave a few amongst the travel brochures for anyone to help themselves to a pocket size gospel and it has proved successfull over the years.
Of course I did the same on this trip and noticed the odd copy had been taken.
I got concerned when all the gospels dissappeared at the same time and made enquiries at the information desk.
I was informed that they had been removed and " INCINERATED " because it was against company policy to promote "Religion or Politics".
Please pray for a change of company policy in the very near future.
I feel so sorry for the person who did such an unspeakable act. They could at the very least returned the Gospels to me with an explanation.
We arrived in The Faroe Islands ten hours late. All is now going very well but the bus does not like climbing the mountains here.
Tuesday 21st of September 2010 09:20:27 PM
On board ship from Sweden to Denmark.
It has been a gruelling drive across Sweden with heavy rain and high winds today.
I sail for the Faroe Islands at 23 00 hrs tomorrow ( saturday ) and hope to get some rest on board. No cabins are available which means sleeping in the bowels of the ship with six or eight people to a basic curtained room and very noisy. Please pray that a cabin can be found when I get on board.
I called on friends outside Uppsalla on tuesday and a meeting was arranged in the evening. A real blessed time with many young people present. I have promised to return before I sail for Britain even though it is a thousand mile trip. I hope schools will be arranged for my return.
Friday 17th of September 2010 08:14:29 PM
tien päällä ja olo melkein nautinnollinen!!!!
Olin yötä autotallissa Pietarsaaressa ja "Bo" tarkasteli moottoria tänään iltapäivällä. Työ oli liian suuri tehtäväksi tänään, joten hän korjasi ajovaloni ja lisäsi pakkasnesteet puolestani.
Kuljen nyt rannikkotietä pitkin kohti Turkua ja Ruotsinlaivaa. Pääsen merille muutaman päivän kuluttua.
Pohjois-Irlannista kuuluu sellaisia uutisia, että kontillinen evankeliumeita on matkalla Tampereelle sisältäen jopa enemmän evankeliumeita, kuin ne, jotka tulivat Kuhmoon. Minua ilahduttaa, että tämä työ on voinut auttaa muidenkin tekemää evankelioimistyötä.
Rukoilkaa nopeampaa toimitusta ja riittävää rahallista tilannetta kun "maailma" risteää kansainvälisillä rajoilla.
Lähdin kuhmosta lauantaina ja suuntasin kohti alkoholistien kotia Nilsiän ulkopuolella. Olen tuntenut oloni todella tervetulleeksi ja käyttänyt aikaani päivittääkseni tietokoneella tehtävät työni ja kirjoittaen uutiskirjettäni, joka on nyt nettisivuillani.
Taloudellisista syistä johtuen en voinut toimittaa evankeliumeita Helsinkiin. Minulla ie ollut varaa reissua varten vaadittuun dieseliin.
Vaihtoehtoisia suunnitelmia evankeliumeitten toimittamiseksi on tehty.
Lähden täältä huomenna kohti Pietarsaarta, jossa näytän moottorin öljyvuotoa. Jospa minulla olisi korjaamiseen tarvittavat varat.
Olen juuri viettänyt päivän "Franf Mangs"-keskuksessa Närpiön reunamilla. Olin erittäinb tervetullut tänne viime vuonna.
Lähden tänä aamuna Turkuun ja matkustan laivalla Ruotsiin.
Ruotsin puolella ei ole kovin hyvät Internet-yhteydet.
