Thebrakes and air problems seem to be sorted out at last. It cost another £1,400 to rectify and repair what I hope are the final problems relating to the accident. On thursday I spoke at the drop in cafe situated on the high street in Cumnock and was very warmly recieved by the patrons. Last night I was recharging my batteries in beloved Glencoe.Real silence and no traffic, it was pure bliss. I am still trying to make plans for the weekend but do not yet have a word from the Lord as to his plan.

It is good to have such a positive response from the newsletter, not only on this site but also to my email address. If you do not recieve the emails please just drop me a message to my address which is listed on the home page and I would be delighted to include you each time an update is written. I am parked up in a garage in Stockton on Tees having brake and air problems sorted.I pray this is the place where the bus will be made to run properly again. It is so difficult in Scandiavia as they have never seen a vehicle like this and parts are impossible to get hold of.

After a thirty hour boat ride I am back in Britain at last. How I wish that I could send the bus by aeroplane and save the time I need to spend sailing to the countries the Lord has placed upon my heart.I am just a few miles from Newcastle in the town of Stockton on Tees.The bus is once again undergoing repairs to the brakes, clutch and air suspension. I will be so relieved when it is all working properly again.It was so good to call in tesco and fill up with cream cakes and other desserts I have been craving for the last few weeks. I feel very moved by the comments being made on the visitor page and thank all of you for your encouragement.It is really awesome what the Lord has accomplished in the last few months. How you must all have been listening to the inner voice of God as each one of you my friends prayed for me. Please be assured that,
It is not man, but God who gives the increase

It began with frustation, then anger, then Perfect Peace.
I left Norrona on friday morning in Bergen and parked up until saturday morning before driving into Norway for a couple of days touring. When I woke up on saturday I found that I was blocked in by containers and could not move. The final straw came when I found I could not get a signal to access the web pages. This morning I was able to move for the first time since friday and that was to get onto the next ship to Newcastle.
It became a time of complete rest for me as the rain was torrential all weekend and as we head into the Atlantic the rain still pours down. The plus side is that even though I could not access the web, others could and it was inspiring to read messages from friends in Iceland when I at last gained access. Please keep on with the message writing so I know how the Lord is treating you.

Ready to sail to Norway. I will only be there for a few days as I am scheduled to sail for Britain on Monday.The night was horrendous ith gale forge winds shaking the bus. I have a ten mile drive to the port in Klaxvik as Torshavn is too rough for the boat to enter. It looks like a good sail coming up as the stabelizers are once again not working on the Norrona.I really enjoy a good storm at sea. It reminds me of Jesus calming the sea when the disciples got scared of their working element. My gosh it must have been rough that day.I don't know if I can get a signal in Bergen but I will try to keep you all updated of my rest pattern as I will try to wind down for a few days.
Thursday 25th of October 2007 12:55:48 PM
Last night I really felt like my time in Scandinavia had come to the end for this tour and was willing to give up and get back to England.I was amazed to hear this morning that tomorrow is the last sailing of the Norrona for three weeks and that I would have to leave for Norway. I had the correct message but the wrong interpretation. The united service is still being planned and I really Praise The Lord that this year it will be UNITED FAROESE who take the whole service. How I pray that it will be a total success and that souls will be brought into the kingdom.NO ONE IS INDESPENSIBLE.

Very tired and feeling weary tonight.The Generator is still not working and the Gas cylinder has just run out so no coffee or hot meals today by the look of it.Please don't be too concerned as this is normal for the ending of a major tour and reveals just how we all must have stolen from the enemy.I have made calls and pray that something will be sorted out before bedtime.On Sunday we are supposed to be having a united meeting like last year and my depression this evening reveals how scared the enemy really is. He knows he can be victorious with division but he cannot win when we have unity in Jesus.Let's get on with the work and remember the days when I had no generator and no future.
Tuesday 23rd of October 2007 10:05:51 PM
I took a party of around 20 for a drive through the tunnel and they seemed to have enjoyed the experience.In the evening I was asked to speak at the local Brethren assembly and told a little about the work the Lord has given me to do.Today I spent in Vagar and returned to the main town to keep my promise to take a few children for a ride.The bus was filled to capacity with 47 people crammed in for a trip through the tunnel.It was great to hear them all singing childrens choruses on the return journey. Tonight I spoke about the simplicity of following Jesus at Vagar Salvation Army Corps. I leave Suduroy at 7am For the mainland, but I will return next year for an extended visit.
Tuesday 23rd of October 2007 01:20:03 AM
I was able to drive through the new tunnel on Suderoy yesterday and I must say that from experience it is the best constructed one I have ever seen.The single track road round and over the mountain is at last obsolete. I have had many nightmare drives across the island because of it. Last night I was able to meet up with friends and was given the opportunity to speak for a short while about the work. The wind here is very strong today and it was a really bad night as I lay expecting the bus to be blown over at any time. Today it has been organised that I will drive through the tunnel with local people and as I do the christians from last night will take the opportunity to befriend them and talk about Jesus. My comments to Douglas about writing a book have still never changed.
When God tells me I will, and not a moment before.
The mission has grown through word of mouth and introduction by God into situations I was able to be of help with.If He calls me home I am sure I will have left enough material on these pages to tell at least a short story of God's Grace.

It is good to be back in the Faroe Islands amongst my many friends and prayer partners.I have been really busy since I arrived back and am really enjoying myself. I was knocked up early this morning by a man who needed to talk about his drinking problem and the pressure continued all day. I was asked to speak at a house meeting this evening and felt a true sense of the Holy Spirit as I spoke about our responsibilty to tell others about Jesus.I have been informed that a new tunnel is being opened on the island of Suderoy tomorrow and I am now first in the line for the boat trip across in the morning. We must use every opportunity to publish abroad the name of Jesus.How can we face an eternity in heaven if we have been too ashamed to tell others that the only way to heaven is "Jesus"

No one could ever imagine how much the success in Iceland has been due to the messages on the visitor page of this web site. At times I have felt so alone and reading your words of encouragement have really helped to get me through. I have made many friends in Iceland but I understand the position they had been unwillingly placed in due to the problems that occured there. For those who spent time in prayer I really thank you from my whole heart. I am now back in the Faroe Islands for a couple of weeks before sailing for a few days in Norway and then home to GB. The weather is much warmer but the wind is cooling it down. The generator is still not working so I need to wear heavy clothing in the evening to try and keep warm.
Thursday 18th of October 2007 08:40:41 PM
Over the mountain and awaiting the cruise liner 'Norrona' to arrive in port. The ship sails tomorrow at 5pm and the passage takes around 20 hours to the Faroe Islands.The road over the mountain was very icy with blowing snow and more than once I thought that it would be impossible to ascent the 1300 feet to the top with the horrific hairpin bends,then the descent was even worse even in first gear.I know that prayers were being answered all the way.
Within ten minutes of arrival at port the snow really came down and obliterated the whole of the top of the mountain. If I had left later than I did the journey would have been impossible but even in a blizzard the SON shines on me.
Tuesday 16th of October 2007 07:12:47 PM
South Africa, New Zealand, Ulster, Ireland, England. Wales, Scotland, Australia, Czechoslovakia,Denmark,France, Germany, Faroe Islands, Orkney, Shetland and so many other countries who have yet not contacted me.
Thank You so much for your prayers and words of encouragement during the last few weeks of ministry in Faroe and Iceland. I am now poised to cross the last mountain range before leaving Iceland on Wednesday evening. At the moment I am filling up my batteries so that I have electricity when I get to the Faroe Islands on thursday.
It was a terrific disappointment to me that I was not able to meet up with my friend Colin from Ulster who came over this weekend to visit the country, but he was nearly two hundred miles away and the concerts stopped me going to Reyjkavik to meet him. The snow has now set in in the north part of the country so I must get to the port by tomorrow or risk an accident.
One final note for your information. I have been give meals here by various people but only found out this weekend that I had been eating HORSEMEAT. It was a shock to find out that the dish I enjoyed most was probably a runner in the 2 30 race at Ascot.

A night that will be talked about for years to come. What a great event and a truly magnificent success for the town and people of Akureyri.The local choir and young people who made up the groups of modern music were a credit to themselves and stole the show with their positive attitude. The hall was practically full and for three and a half hours the Lord was Glorified.I have worked on thousands of concerts in my lifetime but I was proud to be part of this truly God Inspired Event. I pray I shall have the opportunity to be with them all again next year. All participants have asked me to use this page to thank you for your prayers and good wishes.
Sunday 14th of October 2007 11:43:36 AM
Fantastic,Loud, Out of this World,Exciting but most of all, BLESSED.
The concert was a resounding success with over a hundred young people attending and hearing the gospel in music? and words.The evening finished with He Raised Me Up and by golly he did. Four young ladies came into the bus at the end to ask about Jesus and I was able to pray with them.
This was the first concert ever of it's kind in the town and now looks set to be an annual event and will hopefully help bring the church denominations together.
Tonight looks like a full house if what I hear is true but we will wait and see. If only one turns up and hears about the saving power of Jesus,It is success as far as I am concerned.
I heard the town choir rehearsing earlier and I have to admit to shedding tears of Joy at the tremendous sound the made.It was totally Heavenly.
Saturday 13th of October 2007 06:22:11 PM
Excitement,Anticipation,Concern but most of all AWE as we await the first concert to begin. Young people have been hanging around the school waiting for the event to begin and from the screams of the girls it sounds like it is going to be a success. I have heard the groups who will play this evening as they tuned up their instruments and I know the concert will be a credit to all the participants.
Evening is now falling and how I pray that out of the darkness, Many will find the Light of the World.
Friday 12th of October 2007 08:47:39 PM
The meeting this evening has been cancelled due to gossip about the accident last month. It appears that even though I was not driving at the time and Snorri would not stop the vehicle to allow me to drive it was all my own fault.The main reason for the trouble has been the interview given to the television station after the accident when I was placed in the position of answering questions or not making any comments. No comment would have allowed the interviewer free reign to say anything she desired so I opted to comment and make it as short as possible. Ironically the interview was arranged by Snorri but the addition was taped just a day after the accident when I was still suffering from shock after the event.Since I returned I have rung Snorri four times and left a message as he will not speak to me personally or answer the telephone.As far as I am concerned the whole incident is over and done with, I cannot live a life of unpleasantness and lies.The last weeks have been virtually intolerable for me but I have carried on under extreme conditions and I believe that eventually the truth will find a way of coming out. I did not put anything on the web as I did not want to aggravate the situation here and divide a very divided church any more.I still believe that my time here has been extremely profitable for the kingdom and the newspaper, TV and Radio interviews have touched many hearts and lives.If Snorri had not told me that he had driven busses before he would not have been allowed behind the steering wheel and on the day in question he had driven over a hundred miles before the accident and I stress that word ACCIDENT.I forgive him, I forgive the gossips and forgive all who may try to halt the spread of the gospel in this needy country.This comment is not to begin a debate into right and wrong on the Visitor Page but to let You my supporters know a little of the pressure I am under at this time.
Wednesday 10th of October 2007 03:16:04 PM
Heading for Reyjkavik for a speaking engagement tomorrow and will be back by friday. TV is still not working and the part needed can only be found in Britain when I eventually get there. Booked my passage to Faroe on the 17th and I will be very glad to be on board ship and headind for warmer climes.I am passing steams that are beginning to ice over and the mountains are now holing the snow. Temperatures are minus at night and not over warm during the day, it should be a little warmer tomorrow.
Tuesday 09th of October 2007 08:47:06 PM
It is getting really chilly here and even though the snow looks good on the mountains I am aware that soon I will have to cross over thm without snow tyres as I head for the boat next wednesday.The concerfs this week are ready to go after much planning. I hope that a good number of people attend, but that is not in my hands but in the Lord's. It would be good to hear from a few more people on the visitor page with encouraging words as I feel very isolated and alone here at the moment. I will be back in Northern Ireland by late November and will spend christmas in the Faroe Islands again I hope.
Tuesday 09th of October 2007 12:27:32 PM
A day of sitting around and keeping as warm as possible with a very cold wind blowing. As I have travelled for the Lord in the last few years I have found that He has very Special People scattered around the world.These are the great Servants who are always on hand to do the Lord's work without thanks or reward.Paul tells us that the greatest gift of all is Charity "or Love".
In Akuryreri I have met one of these Great people.
When my bus broke down he repaired it, When the accident happened he was there to help.This morning when I was having problems with my bus and the tv would not work he arrived to put things right and he will never accept payment but does it for the Love of the Lord.
I take this opportunity to thank ELVER a True man of God for his constant witness by example as to what a Christian Really IS. "A Servant"
Saturday 06th of October 2007 11:35:33 PM
I spent yesterday outside the shopping centre in Akuryeri and had quite a busy day with new faces coming to visit the bus and ask questions.Today I was supposed to take a group of christians 'by their invitatation' from the pentecostal church out to Blondous for outreach. Once again I have travelled hundreds of miles to keep my word but no one has rung me or shown up.
I begin to wonder if the christians here have heard the words, " Let your Yes be Yes, and let your No be no"
The weather has deteriorated and it is in the minus range this morning with sleet blowing on the lower ground. I pray this is only temporary as I cannot afford to come out by freighter next week.I only know that God has it all under control and He has not yet told me to abandon this town and leave Iceland.
Saturday 06th of October 2007 11:39:35 AM
Back in Akureyi after a fantastic journey. I was being greeted by so many people who have heard or seen the TV coverage. People waving at me as I passed. Yesterday was very different as I indulged myself by going for a volcanic bath in one of the hot springs.I have heard of nude bathing before but praise the Lord I was the only one bathing. The temperature in the water was 50 degrees but the air temperature was 5 degrees.It is the first time in six years that I have been totally pain free. I think I will be doing it again before I leave here.
Friday 05th of October 2007 12:33:26 AM
A day of many visitors in Faskrudsfjordur with many asking about the work. It seems that just about everyone in Iceland has heard about the bus and the peculiar Englishman that has come to visit. Tonight I have driven through the mountain tunnel and parked at Reydarfjordur. I will continue driving tomorrow towards Egilsstadir.
Tuesday 02nd of October 2007 08:42:51 PM
Much prayer is required as I move into the last three weeks of the work in Iceland. I hope the Lord will enable me to be used to bring the christians of this great country into a time of reconciliation and unity. The accident and gossip generated after it has caused much damage. I pray that everyone involved will realise that our only aim and the true aim of Jesus is forgiveness and looking forward.I have forgiven everyone UNCONDITIONALY. the bus is running and Jesus is still in control of my life.
Monday 01st of October 2007 10:52:56 PM
A day of great blessings here at Hofn.The service this afternoon was a real time of Joy and Love. I think I will leave here tomorrow heading back towards the Arctic coastline.
Monday 01st of October 2007 12:39:00 AM
The outreach in Hofn was a tremendous success with nearly every child in the town calling to view the Ruter as a bus is named over here.I gave away around forty new testaments in Icelandic with countless tracts and pictures to all.When I was parked up on friday I did some fishing in the glazier lagoon and had a new experience there.
In my fishing life I have lost my lures in many ways. tangles, rocks, big fish, seaweed and even on wrecks. But on friday I had a definate first. The line got caught in the current and was swept under the ice. Two large Icebergs collided and snapped the line in two and that is a real first for me. I got my own back by carrying away a bucket full of ice pieces and the water that has been frozen for a thousand years is the best I have ever tasted.
Who said that serving the Lord was BORING?
Sunday 30th of September 2007 01:27:47 PM
Heavy mist and light drizzle today as I drove towards Hofn. I have pulled in by the Icebergs that have broken off the largest glacier outside the Arctic area. It feels very eerie but is still extremely beautiful and one of my favourite places in the country.Tomorrow I meet the christians from Hofn for an outreach followed by a concert by the Reykjavik Gospel Choir.
Friday 28th of September 2007 08:05:00 PM
Back on the mainland and slowly heading for Hofn to speak on sunday afternoon. I should be in Akureyri by next wednesday or thursday and hope that by then I will be able to do some outreach. The weather has turned milder again but I don't know how long for.
Thursday 27th of September 2007 11:23:25 PM
The weather is very cold and it looks like the winter is well on it's way.I am now placed in the position of needing to make decisions about my length of stay here.I am getting very few visitors now as people prefer to stay at home and keep warm.It is a little disappointing that the people of Iceland are not using the visitor page as feedback to me. Much has happened here this last few weeks with souls for Christ and churches getting out into the community so I can leave with gtreat peace of mind if the Lord directs me to leave.If the snow hits the mountains before I make my decision it will cost five or six times as much to use a freight company for the bus to be transported out of the country. Please pray hat I will be given great wisdom. The newspaper article comes out tomorrow morning here and I shall make my decision in the next few days.
Wednesday 26th of September 2007 12:56:56 PM
The only visitor today was from the local newspaper wanting to do a write-up for this weeks edition.The sun is shining but it is bitterly cold with very high winds.It looks like I will be staying here a few days to enjoy the scenery and encourage the local church.I am informed that the weather is going to improve.I think I have managed to fix the generator temporarily.
