During a lull in the storm I took a couple of pictures of the bus waiting to board ship. They are now the first two pictures on the Faroe Pictures Page. The new time of sailing is 10pm and I am beginning to feel a little chilly. Anyway I am having casserole of Pilot whale and Onions for dinner and really looking forward to it.

I am at the port in Torshavn and awaiting boarding instructions,The ship should have sailed an hour ago but is delayed until 5pm. The weather is lousy with snow, wind, rain,sleet,thunder and lightning and hail.That is only what has happened in the last 30 minutes.Other than that, it is like a normal summer's day here. The forecast at sea is force 9 to 11 gales. I think it could be a bumpy crossing and I await sailing time eagerly. Please pray that there are no more delays as the bus does not really like this blustery weather.
Saturday 26th of January 2008 02:26:06 PM

Bad weather expected later today. The roads are like a skating ring and extremely dangerous to drive the bus on. The news has arrived thar Norrona is not sailing today because a blizzard is expected throughout the North Atlantic. The boat should sail on Saturday but at the moment I await further news daily. Please pray for the Lord's will in this situation.

The bus roof is now sealed and does not appear to leak any more. Inside will get cleaned today before sailing time at 5pm. Last night I went to my final meeting here. The Klaxvik church sent a singing quartet to Skala and they really were good. I was invited to sing and speak for a few minutes.The gear box leak has been fixed and even though there is still a little water leak, I am not over worried about it. My heartfelt thanks go out to Gordon and his family for seeing the problems and getting them fixed.I should arrive in Denmark on saturday and sail for Britain on Tuesday evening. Yesterday the roads were clear but the snow fell again all night and a blizzard id blowing outside the window.I hope the snow poughs get going before sailing time, I have a long drive to the port in Torshavn.
Thursday 24th of January 2008 09:40:19 AM

The bus is nearly ready to roll. The roof has been worked on and I hope that the water keeps outside from now on. I am tired of waking up to a wet bed in the morning.Thank God for waterproof sleeping bags.
The seal on the gearbox has been repaired but still a few problems from the water leak. A new cylinder head gasket has been fitted and the mechenic knows where the leak is situated. A newsletter has gone out today, if you did not recieve one please let me know and I will sens one by return email. The vision the Lord revealed to me is in the newsletter and now it is time to pray in the finance to complete the task appointed.Please Pray.
Wednesday 23rd of January 2008 01:11:29 AM

The weather here is getting worse with too much snow for the bus to drive the roads safely. I hope things improve before the sailing on thursday. A newsletter will be sent out before I leave the islands, If I do not have your email address please drop me a line. My email address is on the newsletter page along with all other address information.

The youth club was a treat for me with quite a few young people turning up to listen and they ALL understood english. The weather has turned bad with lots of snow in the last few days. The roads are very slippery and I have not seen a grit lorry anywhere. The road from Klaxvik includes two mountain roads so great care has to be taken when driving. I am praying for clear roads on thursday as the bus does not have snow tyres.
Saturday 19th of January 2008 08:48:34 PM

Most of the work is now completed on the bus.We hope to take it for a test drive tomorrow before fitting the cylinder head gasket. Please could readers check the prayer request page for prayer material. Miracle Required is an urgent request but please make use of this vital part of the web site.Speaking at a youth club tomorrow evening.
Thursday 17th of January 2008 10:50:26 PM

It is now certain that I will not be able to catch MV Norrona on thursday as the parts are still not here for the full repairs. I have seen the reasons for all the problems we have had since the accident. The engine,gearbox and propshaft had been knocked out of line and this has caused wear and breakages as I have travelled.We believe that all the parts required are now on their way or can be found locally.It is good to work with mechanics who love Jesus yet continue working as we converse. I am able to help a little with small tasks and I pray I will learn a little of the mechanics of the engine before the job is completed.
Finally a quote from what I heard during my quiet time with Father.
*It is not who you are, It is not what you say,It is WHAT YOU ARE that brings Glory to your Father*
Tuesday 15th of January 2008 11:23:53 PM

A really busy weekend on the island of Suderoy with three preaching engagements on sunday. I stayed at the home of Remi and his charming family and had a great time with the three girls and their friend viewing the Faroe Pictures page.Noomi who is twelve, stood outside the local shop this afternoon and gave away 120 calanders to passers by,How is that for initiative.The weather is very stormy with icy roads. The bus is being worked on but the mechanics are hinting that I will not catch the Norrona on thursday because the parts are delayed coming from Denmark.It is good to see new names on the visitors page and we welcome the comments from Kathy. I pray you gave God ALL the Glory on sunday in Scotland.

The timing of God is always perfect.
Today the bus was put into the garage in Klaxvik and work has begun stripping down the gear box and realigning the engine. This work could take up to two weeks and during that time I will be forced to take time off to rest and catch up on much needed personal prayer.
Eleven years ago the Lord gave me a commission and also a vision for the future of the work.
Only one part of the vision has yet to be fulfilled and during this evening I believe the Holy Spirit has spoken that the time is ready for the vision to be completed.
At this time I am unable to reveal the facts on this page. I must be careful that I am hearing only from God and not the desires of His People.
I desperately need your prayers that I shall not flinch but trust in the Lord's Leading. Much faith will be required so I pray for the faith as large as a mustard seed as I move into the unknown and into His Will.

At last a real dignosis has been made of the bus situation. It appears that three of the six brackets and rubber stabalisers are broken.This has put engine and gearbox out of line and is probably causing all of the problems. The parts are being ordered from Denmark today and the stripping down of engine and gearbox should begin tomorrow and take up to two weeks to repair.It feels like a curse was been put on the work during my period in Iceland and prayer and perseverence are the only way through it all.After nearly twelve years of work it will take a lot more than a few breakdowns to stop the progress of the ministry.Today I have once again been speaking to the christian students at the university.
Wednesday 09th of January 2008 10:45:46 PM

A problem developed with the bus engine some time ago and all the mechanics I have used have not been able to fix it. I have been using too much water and the gear box had developed an oil leak which was beginning to get worse as time went by. A friend here has had the bus taken to Klaxvik and the engine is now under full repair.Pray that the parts are soon available and there is no problem fitting them. I am now living in comfort at the house until the bus is ready.God really astounds me sometimes.

The rest period never got off the ground and it has been a full weekend of preaching and talking to people.Prayer has been truly answered and I was given the opportunity to speak at the State ( Lutheran ) Church this evening during the service for Prayer Alliance. Congratulations are sent to John and Christine who are getting married on tuesday afternoon. I, along with the friends here in Faroe wish them a blessed life together.

A day of rest today with not much to do but reading and relaxing. The air here is very bracing and makes me want to sleep all the time. Over the next few days I hope to take advantage of the God given opportunity to rest.I am having very few visitors and I am grateful to the people here who realise that I need some time to myself at least once a year.The bus is parked in a warehouse in Fugljifiord.
Saturday 05th of January 2008 12:10:24 AM

The joint church service planned for tomorrow evening has had to be cancelled due to lack of support at this time.So many things are happening here in the Faroe Islands at this time of the year that everyone is worn out from meetings and visiting relatives. A firm date will be set for an event in June before I leave next thursday. I have had a number of calls from Iceland requesting a visit this year so I must get down to some organised prayer when I return to Britain. Please join me in asking the Lord's desire for the work in 2008.
I have spent the day putting lights in the bus and trying to make it feel more homely for visitors and myself.The roof seems to be waterproof now so tomorrow I will be up a ladder cleaning the windows upstairs and down. Two Russian trawlers left here today with a good supply of christian calendars for the crew and relatives in Murmansk.

Weather WET AND STORMY. You would think it was winter up here as you look out and see the snow covered mountains and icy roads. At least I cannot complain of being too warm. The work on the bus roof has nearly been completed and I pray that at last the water will stop coming in. I found a very large hole at the rear corner which must have been made by flying debris in the storm.It was a good new year with plenty of fireworks and bonfires throughout the islands. It appears that until recently the fires were put out by throwing a couple of sticks of dynamite into the burning embers but the practice has now been stopped for safety reasons. Last night a young man of 24 years gave his life back to Jesus in the bus and a young man I met at a new years eve party began his year by giving his life to the saviour. As I said a few days ago, WATCH THIS SPACE. A Blessed 2008 to you all and Please keep on praying.

Two days of film shows for the children have been quite successful with a good number of children turning up. The language is a barrier here for advertisind any eveny. I have to depend upon the local christians to organise and help but even if they have plenty of notice of events it always seems to be on the last minute before they realise it is imminent.Never mind , one day I may be able to do it all myself.
Sunday 30th of December 2007 11:44:28 AM

Weather a little better today. Tonight I have visitors at the house, Jack and his seven year old son Aaron are watching fims and chatting. Tomorrow There are two film shows in Skali for the children so please pray for a good turn out.
Thursday 27th of December 2007 10:00:00 PM

Thank God I am not staying in the bus tonight. The storm has returned and is now even worse than two days ago.The water is pouring into the bus from the seam in the roof.Arrangements are made for the next two weekends for childrens film shows so I am staying here.There is no where to get the bus under permanent cover to dry it out so I am spending each day putting heat in the bedroom area but it is an uphill battle. I would turn out tonight to check the situation but it would blow the car off the road so if you read this Please Get Praying.
Wednesday 26th of December 2007 09:20:17 PM

Have a happy christmas and please keep leaving messages.
Only got two presents and three cards this year. Stepping out into the unknown from my little house in Tobermore has really made a difference to my life.I would get upwards of 500 cards there and the gifts kept me going throughout the winter but now I am satisfied with a coffee mug and a sheeps horn ornament from two twelve year olds
Also thanks to those who have brought me enough cooked meat to fill a butchers shop or a cafe..
I do not recommend this lifestyle to everyone, but for me I am completely satisfied and serving my Saviour as I believe he desires.
I stopped feeling sorry for myself and I am now at work, parked by the side of the road and reminding passing car drivers of the Reason for the Season.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who have subscibed to the work this year and most of all " TO THE FEW " who subscribe through Caleb Initiative on a regular basis. It is surprising what 10 a month can do if it is given with a good heart.
Finally. Congratulations to Huw Thomas and his new wife.He may stop travelling now he has got to Korea with his hearts desire.

Christmas Eve is the main hight of the festivities here on the Faroe Islands. The afternoon was spent sorting out most of the storm damage to the bus. If water could find a way in, it did and upstairs and downstairs was saturated and things broken as they fell from the cupboards. I really looked forward to going out this evening and spending time with a nice family in Eida but had to turn back as the roads were far too icy to drive. Tomorrow I had been invited out for tea but after the invitation had been accepted it appears it was forgotten and the family are going elsewhere for the day. I admit that I don't feel very christmassy this evening, in fact I feel very dispirited and quite sorry for myself. I recommend that you continue watching this space because everytime I feel like this, Something GREAT HAPPENS.I know the plans I have for you says the Lord, Plans to do you Good and give you A Future. I pray that ALL my readers and their families have a truly Blessed time during the celebration of Christmas. If you read this during Christmas , PLEASE leave a message and help cheer up your friend. Brother Clifford. GOD BLESS.

Sorry I have not been updating every day but I am spending much time resting and sleeping. I had an urgent call to move the bus earlier. The wind was registering around 240 Kilometres and the rain is torrential.The house is surrounded by mountains and hardly any grass is visible. It is just a torrent of water and reminds me of the Angel Falls out there.MSN said the winds would be around 60 kph but they must have a Michael Fish forecasting the weather out there.
Sunday 23rd of December 2007 07:03:50 PM

I arrived in the Faroe Islands yesterday and I am now settled in a lovely house for a couple of weeks. The weather is first class but too windy to take the bus very far without problems. My friend Jens has loaned me a car to get about and it feels quite strange to be "normal" for a while. Problems with the internet at the moment so until they are solved I must rely upon hiring computers at internet cafe's. I was given 5,000 calendars to give away wnd up to now the children from three schools have been supplied. They are gospel text calendars so I am trying to give them to homes that would not normally purchase this type of calendar. Please pray that many hearts are touched during the next year of witness in the homes supplied.I will update as I can. God Bless and keep praying.

I have found a smashing lay by overlooking an area of natural beauty. The scenery is incredible and very peacefull. I must say that the Danes know how to look after mobile home drivers.
Friday 14th of December 2007 04:01:17 PM

Denmark at last. I remain here until saturday, then board Norrona for the Faroe Islands.
As Eric said in his entry, I hope to find an isolated lay by and rest up for two days before sailing. Once again the trip has been eventfull and also full of problems.
I felt that I was being raided on tuesday evening after Eric left me. At around 11 30pm I noticed flashing blue lights outside and found that the bus was surrounded by police cars. Upon investigation it turned out that I was parked where police stationed there cars ready for trouble fron the pubs and the bus had started a major police enquirie. It felt very strange to hear all the radio comments describing the bus and the writing on it. We all finished up laughing and I was left alone all night and slept like a log. I would believe that thousands heard about Jesus that day in Bishops Stortford.
Thursday 13th of December 2007 02:53:04 PM

The people at the garage made me extremely welcomw over the weekend. The secretary invited me to lunch on sunday and a van was put at my disposal this afternoon. It is amazing what mechanics can do if they put their mind to it and they want to be helpful. I really did not expect the bus to be ready until wednesday but I drove it away at 6 30 this evening and called on The Web Master for a surprise meeting.I have just passed Naseby on the A14 and am now parked up for the night.
Tuesday 11th of December 2007 02:19:03 AM

I feel led to once again point out that this web site is named "Highways for Jesus" and has been put on the internet to promote the gospel and encourage not only myself, but others to try their best to serve our wonderful Saviour. I also use email to answer the more personal questions and it is there for everyone to contact me on a personal level. I am a Sinner Saved by Grace and I am also human with human failings and faults like everyone else.
Sunday 09th of December 2007 12:01:00 PM

Once again I see the hand of the Lord moving in my life as I sit waiting for the mechanics to begin work on Monday morning.
The last clutch installed was one of the copy clutches which we all have put in our vehicles when we have an emergency on our hands and need to save money. I now know that copies are false economy and do not last, in fact they are just like false prophets. All show and no depth.
I was invited to a wedding a few weeks ago and had to refuse because of my commitments at this time but guess what has happened. Yes he was married today and the ceremony was only ten miles from where I await repairs and I was able to be there. Much happiness is wished on Christina and Gwyndaf as they begin a new and bright future together.
I recieved two telephone calls within an hour yesterday.The finance has now been put in place and I WILL be returning to Faroe. Boats Permitting.
