I have spent all week sitting still awaiting a diagnosis on the condition of the generator.
To put it in the words of the locals it is. "Kaput"
It is needed for the trip to Sweden as there is still snow there and minus temperatures for the next few weeks.
Today I spent the last of my reserve money buying a new one. I got a discount of over 40% but it has left me stoney broke.
I hope it will be installed tomorrow.
I keep visiting the Visitors Page and my emails to cheer myself up but finish off feeling despondant because no one seems to love me any more.
"Thank God for Jesus"
The cost of printing the ,ife story in Sweden has proved prohibitive so I am awaiting a quotation from Northern Ireland at the moment. I have no money but I am not too short of "Faith".

The meeting in Runavik on saturday evening was a true blessing for me as I once again met up with christian friends.
When I first came to the Faroe Islands, my first outdoor meeting was in Runavik. During the meeting two young men came into the bus for help and prayer and I was able to tell them about Jesus. At the time I was not sure how much they understood but they both committed their lives to our beautiful Jesus.
It was a delight that one of those men came to the meeting on saturday and is a glowing testimony to the Power of Prayer. He still walks with Jesus and speaking with him was a real pleasure.
On sunday morning I went to the Philadelphia church in Gorte and spoke at the meeting after communion and then spoke to the young children of the sunday school.Sunday evening I was in Klaxvik and spoke at the Soli Deo Gloria church to a very receptive congregation.
My time here is a true pleasure to me and I know that many are praying as I travel these precious Islands for Jesus.
Monday 16th of March 2009 04:43:08 PM
Heading for Runavik where my friend Jack has arranged a house meeting this evening and I will be the main speaker.
It is still raining here and even though I have the fibre glass to repair the roof I am having difficulty finding a place to get it done.
The generator has packed up and it will prove rather difficult in the future if I cannot get it repaired. I depend upon it for a little heating when I get past the Arctic Circle in a few weeks time.
I am receiving emails from Sweden with bookings for my forthcoming tour there and getting quite excited about it.
I received two emails from Africa yesterday. One I have had many times before offering me a fortune from someones will and I know that it is a scam. The other one was a 26 year old offering to be my wife if she could get an an English passport. ( no comments please )
I put them both in the deleted box.
Saturday 14th of March 2009 02:10:25 PM
Still very busy here and meeting lots of people.
I spoke at the evangelical church in Skala last night and will be talking to the youth this evening.
I am spending a couple of hours with my friend Jens and his family and enjoying a relaxing break.
Thursday 12th of March 2009 05:52:43 PM
It is proving hard to get internet connection here. The cost of mobile connection is now too much for me so I need to depend on internet cafes and my friend Oliver to get on to the web page.
The weekend on the island of Suderoy was great but the winds last night had me fighting the steering wheel to keep on the road.
Once again I am having a great time here and meeting many new people.
Monday 09th of March 2009 11:07:08 AM
Having a good time meeting up with friends around the islands.
I spent yesterday in Klaxvik and was pleased to meet up with my young friend Mike and his family. It makes me feel like an Ancient when I return and see how the young children have developed in just a few short months.
I am making plans to head for Suduroy today or tomorrow and will be out of computer range.
Thursday 05th of March 2009 09:24:15 AM
Arrived in Torshavn at 1am and was feeling on top of the world to be back in my beloved Faroe Islands.
Today the weather has been very welcoming with torrential rain,sleet, snow,fog and wind. It made me feel really very much at home.
I was invited to a birthday party this evening and enjoyed myself meeting friends old and new.
I hope to find a mechanic tomorrow to fix the air problem.
Tuesday 03rd of March 2009 01:03:12 AM
Once again I have had trouble with the air supply on the bus. The brakes came on just as I pulled onto a lay-bye and I could go no further.
Knowing that if I missed the ship I would have to wait a week before the next sailing I rang my friend Oliver in the Faroe Islands. He said he would try to get help and half an hour later two men came to me who had just dropped off a lorry at the port. They fixed the problem in five minutes with a piece of string by isolating part of the brakes.
I "knew" I was going to miss the boat yet once again God intervened with yet another miracle.
The men rarely come to Esjberg yet they were literally down the road at the port when I needed help.
I wonder what other GREAT things are in atore on this trip of a lifetime?
Next entry from my beloved "Faroe Islands" on monday.
Saturday 28th of February 2009 12:24:06 PM
Just sitting here in the total silence reading "The Hobbit" for the tenth time as it is a real favourite book of mine.
I often go onto the visitor page hoping that someone has left a message for us all but it does not get as much visiting as my page unfortunately.
The bus is running like a bird and even though the diesel heater is not working until I can afford a new one I am quite snug with the Calor Gas Heater that was given to me.
I sent an email to some of my friends regarding a lady with Cervical Cancer. I have since found out that the original email was first posted in 2002 and the lady is still in remission. Because of this I will not forward any more emails to friends without knowing all relevent details.
Friday 27th of February 2009 06:02:37 PM
The ship docked on time and I am now parked up in a lay-bye awaiting the Norrona to sail for The Faroe Islands on saturday.
The cost of living here is far more expensive than in Britain and the value of the pound makes it even worse than when I left a month ago.
Please pray that the finance will come in to enable me to continue to do the work as the Lord desires.
Thursday 26th of February 2009 05:00:32 PM
I am now at the port in Harwich and will board the ship for Denmark later this afternoon.
I then sail for the Faroe Islands on Saturday but will spend two days cleaning the bus and resting. I am very tired and have got a chest infection so don't feel up to much today.
It was really nice to receive a message from Elfor and Benny in Iceland. I am sure many of you are aware of the terrible inflation in that beautiful land and the prayer needed for the christian church there.
I am really looking forward to this trip but hope the temperature has risen a little before I arrive in Sweden on April 1st.
Wednesday 25th of February 2009 02:42:47 PM
It is really good to sit here overlooking the small town I was born in.
This morning it was a real joy to me when I parked the bus outside the local Tesco Supermarket. The first person I saw as I walked across the car park was my sister Irene. It was terrific to catch up with news of my other four sisters and recieve a big hug from her.
I am having dinner this evening with my friends Steve and Cill who have recently returned from Czech.
I leave tomorrow for Bristol and hope to meet up with Commander John Ellis and then off to see Eric before I leave for Denmark.
Saturday 21st of February 2009 07:17:54 PM
I must thank the staff of C.C.R.S. Breakdown Service from Bangor in Northern Ireland for the work they have done on the bus.
I have been given many estimates to have a gear box fitted since the fault was diagnosed but this firm found that it was not required. Yesterday Paul the mechanic fitted new linkages and gave the bus a full service.
The whole job was done for around a thousand pounds and has made the driving a pleasure. Thanks Uel and Paul for a good job.
I leave for Scotland this morning and will be in Lancashire tomorrow for the weekend.
I hope to sail For Denmark on wednesday and then on to The Faroe Islands for three weeks before heading for Sandviken in Sweden in April.
Friday 20th of February 2009 08:39:54 AM
It was a really good weekend in the Stabane and Londonderry area.
On sunday morning a solicitor came to the meeting and made a decision for Jesus. I have heard very encouraging news from the area of people who have made decisions for Jesus over the last few years as a direct result of the bus ministry. The Lord is truly gracious to me as He encourages me in this positive way.
A good number of the people I have worked with and ministered to recently have made promises to make entries on the Visitor Page to encourage the readers.
I search in vain for the results of their promises and suffer hurt each time I see no results.
I remember the words of the Bible. " Let your Yes be Yes and your No be No"
Monday 16th of February 2009 09:56:59 PM
I write this from the main street in Strabane after a really good afternoon of witness on the streets of the town.
A good number of people joined me and went out with tracts and invitations to the meeting tomorrow evening at 8pm. The bus has been really busy all afternoon with many young people calling to visit. There is a real hunger in this town for the Gospel and the local churches are on fire to spread the word.
Today I took a back seat and allowed the helpers to run the bus. They did themselves proud and it was a pleasure to listen to them talking about a faith that was truly real to them.
Saturday 14th of February 2009 06:54:17 PM
Yesterday was spent at the C.C.R.S. garage in Bangor having the gear box checked out. It appears that each garage I have used have missed the main problem. The gear box linkage is worn out and requires replacing.
I hope this will be done next week before I leave for the mainland.
I will be in Derry tomorrow and Srabane on Saturday for a street and meeting outreach. The sunday evening meeting will be held in the Libary Meeting Room in Strabane.
Thursday 12th of February 2009 10:18:46 AM
Sunday was a good day and very well recieved in Limavady Methodist Church.
I am parked at a Webasco dealer in Newcastle and hope they will be able to service and repair the bus heating system.
It looks like I will be delayed in leaving Ireland because the gear box is playing up again. I have decided to take time and get the problems sorted out before I head for the remote areas later this year. It would be intolerable if I had to be towed for hundreds of miles in Finland if it could be prevented.
Tuesday 10th of February 2009 09:42:34 AM
Parked in my usual spot outside Limavady. The snow on the hills looks fantastic and it is good to sit and relax.
I was visited by my friend Norman Somerville this evening and enjoyed reminiscing about the times we have shared since I met him in 1998.
Tomorrow I am speaking at the Methodist church. The meeting begins at 11 45am.
Once again I am having bus problems with the gear box. It has been playing up for nearly a year but is getting worse. It will have to be sorted before I head for Scandinavia in March.
Saturday 07th of February 2009 10:11:37 PM
A great evening at "Bangor Independemt Methodist" last night with every seat taken.
It was good to look out and see Archie and Brian joining me for the evening with their friends. It makes me realise the impact the way the work has affected so many thousands of lives in the last thirteen years.
Still no snow here but I expect to be back into the white stuff very soon as I travel across Northern Ireland.
Thursday 05th of February 2009 09:50:05 AM
The welcome from the people at Bangor Indepentant Methodist Church was really good.
I speak here tonight at 7 30 and really look forward to it. I have heard that Brian and Archie are trying to get here to meet me again. It seems so long since I witnessed the life changing time for both of them as each invited Jesus into their lives.
I leave here tomorrow heading for Limavady Methodist church where I am speaking on sunday morning at 11 45am.
Wednesday 04th of February 2009 10:46:04 AM
Sunday at Whitehead Baptist church was a truly blessed time. I will be leaving here tomorrow morning and heading for Bangor Independent Methodist Church and speaking at the Bible Study on wednesday evening.
It looks like the Scandinavian weather has followed me over here. I am still basking in clear sunny weather but I believe that most of Britain and Ireland are at a standstill with heavy snow."Now you know what Sweden is like".
I have noticed that not many people are leaving messages on the visitor page." Please leave a message to encourage others.
Monday 02nd of February 2009 09:59:40 AM
At last I have a connection to the internet.
Parked at Whitehead Baptist Church and ready for the sunday morning service.
The bus is driving okay but the rain is still coming in through the roof and is not very pleasant. I hoped to get the repair done this winter but due to the cost of the mechanical repairs it is now unlikely that I can afford to get it done.
The decline in the pound's value has made the work much harder but God has everything in control.
Saturday 31st of January 2009 02:03:06 PM
The repairs have been done and have cost nearly £6,000. The problems have not been ironed out and I am a little disappointed with the results.
The heater still does not work and I had to bring out a mechanic to sort out an air leak.
I am still in the Fermanagh district and it is impossible to get a signal here. Please forgive me that I have not been able to update.
This week I have been in Ballinamallard and Enniskillen area. I spent last night at Bellinaleck but have moved on because I cannot get access to electricity.
I am heading for Carrickfergus today and will be speaking at Whitehead Baptist Church on sunday morning.
I will update as I am able.
Wednesday 28th of January 2009 01:00:49 PM
I cannot get onto the internet where I am and I will be here for a few more days getting the bus rejuvenated. Keep on praying
Sunday 18th of January 2009 10:56:19 AM
The sun has shone most of today and it was good to meet up with Gerald again. He sends his best wishes to all the readers who have met him or heard about his important part in the work.
I take the bus to the garage tomorrow for an estimate of the cost of all the repairs required. Much prayer required that the finance will arrive in the bank in time.
Wednesday 14th of January 2009 12:32:21 AM
I sailed from Scotland yesterday and arrived in Ulster at 6pm.
The night was spent on the Glenshane Pass but was disturbed by young people who seemed to enjoy honking their car horns and banging on the bus sides.
I hope to find somewhere a little quieter to park tonight.
I now await a phone call from my friend Mickey Stewart about the bus repairs. I believe they will be very expensive this winter because the sub zero temperatures around the Arctic Circle have caused much damage.
I will be able to recieve mail at my box number here for the next three or four weeks.
Tuesday 13th of January 2009 09:30:42 AM
After a day on the banks of Loch Lomond it is time to get going again.
The outreach at the Cumnock Cafe Outreach went very well and I was able to meet up with many friends. I am now outside the town of East Kilbride and ready to speak there tomorrow morning at the "Logos Christian Fellowship" in Kelso Road. In the evening I will take part at the Baptist Church service.
I am really thrilled to be askeed to speak in the Scotland area once again after a break of three years.
Saturday 10th of January 2009 06:34:24 PM
The last couple of days have been spent in Ayr relaxing and catching up with sleep.
Tomorrow I will be speaking at New Cumnock for the otreach cafe. On sunday I am booked to speak at East Kilbride.
Wednesday 07th of January 2009 07:14:34 PM
Having a great time in Britain.
I left the Bristol area and headed for Lancashire. There I met up with friends and was taken out for a meqal. I have a passion for Fish and chips at the moment so really enjoyed myself.
The Web Master and his family made me very welcome and we were able to discuss the web site and relax for a while.
This morning I spoke in Skipton and have now moved on to the Lake District. Most of this week will be spent in Scotland.
Sunday 04th of January 2009 05:29:37 PM
I was able to join with friends at two new years eve parties last night but got back to the bus before midnight to watch the firework displays from the car park. The sliding windows in the top of the bus gave me a great vantage point over the weston sky line and it was really enjoyable to stand and watch a dazzling display from every direction.
I left Weston this morning and met up with the christian author " Chris Wright" on Gordano service station. He wrote the book "Haslam's Journey" about the vicar who was converted during his own sermon. I was privelidged to be given a copy signed by the author.
If my book is ever written, It would have to be ghost written by someone like Chris who goes to a lot of trouble researching the facts to get everything correct.
Tonight I am parked up at Stafford service area.
