A good day today but a couple of health problems tired me out.
After a long wait on a Tesco car park with Doctor Rob to keep me company I at last took delivery of the motor home.I drove it to the camp site and was delighted with the way it drove.
It was dark by the time I parked up so I will begin transferring my belongings tomorrow.
I must thank Michael and his wife for bringing the van and young Bethany who came with them. They brought a large bag of things for me to give me a fresh start.

A good day today with no pain.
Doctor Rob and his Wife Doctor Sara joined me for lunch and for the first time in years I cleared my plate and enjoyed a delicious shepherds pie and veg.
Such good news from Northern Ireland has really given me a lift. A twenty foot long container full of Gospels and Bibles in the Russian language was sent to Finland today. I can no longer carry the heavy packages of books, but I am no longer needed.Praise the Lord.
A loan of money was arranged today so the finance for the motor home is now in place and the vehicle will be delivered on friday evening. Please pray the loan can be payed back quickly. Also finance is needed to restart the work as all my money has now been used.
CT Scan tomorrow at Bolton Hospital.
Wednesday 19th of September 2012 11:31:15 PM
The endoscopy I had was not at all pleasant. Trying to swallow a large tube was not my idea of fun but it was done with the help of a very patient doctor.
He found an inflammation of the lower stomach and in the bowel.
I go for a nearly full body CT scan on thursday and I hope that will be the end of tests for a few weeks.
I am really looking forward to getting the motor home on friday and I am spending a lot of time packing up my belongings and getting ready for the move-
I am still £2,000 short of the target but trust in the Lord that through the readers of this log all will be in place in time.
Tuesday 18th of September 2012 11:29:33 PM
Health seems to be getting better and the tablets prescribed have worked.
I have less trouble breathing and my appetite is back but my mouth is still full of ulcers.
I go to hospital this afternoon to have a camera put down my throat to inspect the stomach and to try to find out why I have lost weight recently.
Doctor Rob and I went to see a motor home in Stoke on Trent yesterday and made the decision to buy it.
I take delivery next friday if I can get enough money together, I am still £3,000 short of the amount required but I am confident that God will supply through His people.
Saturday 15th of September 2012 09:15:09 AM
Back in Bolton area and feeling much better.
I have finished the course of antibiotics and the doctor has stopped me taking the steroids because of the very bad reaction in my mouth.
This afternoon I attend the hospital for more tests and then it is the waiting time for results which can take up to six weeks.
Still finding it difficult in the van but I have no option but to put up with it at the moment.
Finance has been coming in but there is still not enough for a decent motor home.
Thanks to everyone for your prayers at this time.
Thursday 13th of September 2012 11:37:21 AM
Still hanging on and trusting Jesus.
A bad day today with quite a lot of discomfort. Between my legs it is red raw and very painful but this must come from the tablets I am taking.
I was only able to eat liquids today as my mouth is very dry and painful from the Steroid spray I have to use.
I leave here within the next couple of days to head back to Bolton for more tests.
The search for a motor home has proved very difficult and I must put it on hold until I can collect enough finance to get something decent and one I can use for outreach. I hope my health holds out long enough for me to enjoy it.
Finally, Thanks to Phelim and Riverside Church in Londonderry for taking a collection to help me hang on.
Sunday 09th of September 2012 11:55:55 PM
Still hanging on and loving Jesus.
The problem in my mouth is not getting any better but I am coping with it. Last night I once again had a problem with my arm and neck and the pain was just a little too much for me. Thank God for the warriors of prayer who follow this page and hold me up before the throne of grace.
I am now back in Bristol for the weekend but must go back to Weston super Mare on monday to get my tax disk for the truck.
I am still looking for a motor home but they are still out of reach financially.
I know that my Heavenly Father has it in hand and seems to be teaching me how to wait.
Saturday 08th of September 2012 11:00:27 AM
Went to look at an American motorhome today at Exeter Services with John and Jan.
It was another expensive load of rubbish and a waste of time.
I have not been at all well today. The heat rash has now begun to affect my mouth and it feels like it is going to fill with ulcers. It reminds me very much of the weeks after Radium treatment when I felt like I was dying.
Tuesday 04th of September 2012 10:29:51 PM
Getting ready to meet John and Jan who are driving me to Exeter to see the motor home I want to check out today.
Prayer is needed for wisdom in this situation because I will have to take out a very large overdraft.
I hurt my arm and shoulder last night when I was locking the van door on the way out to dinner with John. I am finding my movements are becoming ever more restricted as time goes by. I am still having problems with the steroid tablet side effect and have had to resort to an ointment for nappy rash to relieve the pain.
Tuesday 04th of September 2012 09:20:57 AM
Not a bad day today but still feeling under the weather.
John and I went to see a converted bus today. It cost £6,500 and was a load of rubbish that would not get me to Scotland.
All the vehicles I have seen in my price range are too small to live in or are falling apart.
I have heard about an American Motor Home with a brand new engine in Devon and we go to see it tomorrow.
It seems strange to me to be sitting around resting but I am still finding people who need and want to talk about Jesus.
Please continue praying for Our Father's Glory in the work and that the finance will come in.
Finally, thanks to those who have contributed nearly £500 through Pay Pal. The money is now in my bank and waiting for the right vehicle. We still need much more to get a decent place for me to live in.
Monday 03rd of September 2012 11:49:56 PM
Sorry I have not been updating as often as I would like but I am having a few bad reactions to tablets etc and find it hard to sit and concentrate.
I am so grateful to those of you who have helped me towards our goal of a fresh vehicle in the past few days.
I am trying to wait to get enough money to buy a decent motor home but finding this vehicle is such hard work to live in when I am under the weather.
I am still £5,000 short of my target to get a decent vehicle. I could get a small cheap motor home that would not do the job of outreach and would probably break down when on tour but to be honest with everyone. It would not be fair on myself or upon the ministry.
I was hoping to be offered a short term loan but no one has offered and the bank needs more security than a lot of promises.
Today I hope to meet up with John and Jan in Weston where I hope to empty some of my belongings into rented storage.
Sunday 02nd of September 2012 09:16:53 AM
After driving across country I am in Bristol where Commander John has made me very welcome.
Yesterday afternoon I went to a thanksgiving service for a dear friend of mine who died last week.
I think I have once again been doing too much because I became totally exhausted again yesterday, or it could be the effects of so many different tablets and sprays I now need to use for the lung problems.
I have seen a motor home on E Bay that seems to satisfy most of my requirements but I now await John in Weston super Mare coming back from his holidays tomorrow when we will travel to Wales to see it.
I am still quite a lot of finance short but I am sure that some of the readers will help towards the purchase when the Lord speaks to them quietly.
Friday 31st of August 2012 10:37:45 AM
The tablets are working and I feel much better.
Doctor Rob is being a true friend and he is coming each day to see me and we are traveling the area looking at motor homes even though I cannot really afford one at this time.
The last newsletter has really astounded me and quite a few readers have contacted me that I have not heard from for quite a long time.
I am never too tired to read emails or take phone calls if they do not take too long.
????? Why not drop me a line ??????
Tuesday 28th of August 2012 12:39:35 AM
Feeling so much better today.
The steroids I am taking for the next few days are giving me fresh energy at last. I am also feeling the benefit because of the anti biotic tablets and throat spray which are helping to clear up the chest infection which stopped me getting the benefit of the oxygen I was trying to breathe. Only half of it was getting into my blood supply and causing me to be constantly tired.
After sixteen years of daily fasting on one meal a day I have prayed and can now eat as I desire (within reason) but will still be very careful about food consumption when out of Britain because of the amount of spice in foreign foods.
Today I visited a church in Radcliffe near Manchester and was asked to give testimony. After over an hour I was still as fresh as a daisy.
It was good to meet up with Rita and Steve Walkden after a gap of over twenty years.
They held a prayer group each week which I attended before I found the Lord and we just lost contact.
They were so pleased that at last their prayers had been answered and they could see the evidence.
Please join me in praying for Eric of Caleb Initiative and Anne his wife.
Eric lost His mum this week and she was a lovely person I visited on rare occasions when in Cornwall. A glowing christian lady.
Also Mike Ewan from Whitehead in Northern Ireland has lost his mum.
Please pray for Mike and Shona and their family at this time. I delayed this prayer request because I have not been able to to get in touch with him.
Sunday 26th of August 2012 06:56:58 PM
I went to the doctors surgery yesterday and was sent to the hospital for tests and X Rays.
The specialist diagnosed a massive chest infection and has put me on steroids, and other tablets etc.
This has caused a bit of a problem as they have only dealt with half the problems and Doctor Rob has arranged for me to go for more tests today and have more samples taken. He is really trying to find out what is wrong and I am so honoured the "Lord" has placed such a man at my side during this bad time.
Please pray for a swift outcome. Whils't I am sitting around waiting there is no money coming in to me directly and I am finding things are getting very tough.
Please pray that God will touch hearts to help me during this time.
Friday 24th of August 2012 08:55:45 AM
I am parked at caravan site in Lancashire and waiting to go to the doctor for tests tomorrow morning.
Doctor Rob called twice yesterday as I was in a lot of pain in my left side. He brought me some pain killers and a few hours later I got relief. Most of yesterday was spent dozing to get pain relief.
I pray I soon get results from the tests as I am very low on energy.
Thank God He got me home from Finland.
Wednesday 22nd of August 2012 06:07:11 PM
I spoke too soon !!!!!
Because I have got rid of a lot of the stuff I carry I am finding the lorry is bouncing a lot and causing me a lot of discomfort. I am back in Lancashire and hope to go to church in Horwich tomorrow.
This week I have celebrated sixteen completed years of ministry. I wonder what the Lord has planned for the seventeenth year of service?
It has been very difficult this year for me! Because I have not been able to access my hotmail accounts I cannot get to my address list and cannot send out a newsletter, I hope The Web Master can sort it out when I see him this week, " Please Pray "
Sunday 19th of August 2012 02:05:12 AM
On the A1 heading north for Lancashire.
I arrived in Britain this morning and will see the doctor next thursday. This gives me time to meet up with friends and also to relax a little.
I pray the Doctor finds nothing wrong because God has truly answered our prayers.
I already feel much better and because no one is thumping my shoulder in greeting the pain is quickly going away.
Friday 17th of August 2012 08:38:11 PM
I have taken my time driving here and will arrive at the port tomorrow for the sail to Harwich.
Still very tired but most of the other problems seem to have dissappeared. It looks like the warriors are praying.
I will update when I have more energy.
Wednesday 15th of August 2012 11:32:43 PM
It was a great night at Nilsea Alcoholic Centre. Even though the meeting was arranged at short notice a good crowd turned up.
Two ladies did the translating for me and they admitted they had never done anything like it before. I was delighted with the way they interacted and did a splendid job.
The highlight of the day was meeting the resident priest. He is in a wheelchair and has celebrated his one hundred'th birthday. He is so much in love with Jesus that it literally shines from him.
Last night I spoke and said goodbye to the people at Kuhmo Free Church, A few of the congregation were in tears at the end but we must move on. I wonder if the Lord will allow me to return sometime.
I have driven over 600 kilometres today and have parked outside Tampere, I should sail for Sweden tomorrow night and hope to leave Demark on tuesday to arrive in the UK on wednesday.
I will try to update if I can get a connection. Please keep on praying for me, I don't feel well and I am very tired.
Thursday 09th of August 2012 11:45:52 PM
I got back into Finland yesterday and I am slowly making my way to Nailsea to speak at the alcoholic centre there tomorrow evening.
Wednesday I speak at the Free Church in Kuhmo.
I spoke to my doctor in England on saturday and he has told me to come home for tests. It looks like I have picked up a parasite from the water over here and it is causing me to lose energy and concentration through it's activity in the bowel.
My date for leavng Scandinavia has not yet been fixed but it will be in the next few weeks.
The lorry I am driving has been a Godsend for the last two years but I am finding it harder to manage so When I come to Britain I will be looking for a vehicle that will give me comfort for my last years of mission. A large motorhome would fit the bill as I do not intend to continue carrying vast amounts of heavy literature.
Please pray that God will give me wisdom as I seek " HIS " will.
Monday 06th of August 2012 12:13:24 PM
The gospels are delivered in Estonia and I have spent a couple of days with the family in Latvia.
I am truly amazed at the change a year has made with the whole family in just one year.
I have now said goodbye to them as my assistance is no longer required and it is time to "Let Go and Let God"
I am now back in Estonia and heading for Finland.
My health has not been good recently and I am finding driving the lorry and living in such cramped conditions is really wearing me down.
It looks like I will have to downsize the vehicle if I am to continue working the roads for Jesus.
Please pray that I will be given wisdom to make correct decisions regarding the work. I intend to head out of Scandinavia and take a break from driving on the wrong side of the road for a few months ( or weeks )
Friday 03rd of August 2012 11:31:00 PM
Yesterday was a double birthday party for me. The first was a barbeque after an afternoon meeting with over forty people singing "Happy Birthday" in Finnish. The birthday cake was decorated with Cloudberries and looked and tasted incredible.
The evening meeting at the Free Church was great with a cake decorated with Strawberries and must have contained a million calories.
Ileft Kuhmo at lunchtime today and write this after a 12 hour drive to Helsinki.
I sail for Estonia in the morning and deliver thirty boxes of Russian Gospels in Estonia before I drive to Latvia.
Tuesday 31st of July 2012 12:22:07 AM
Yesterday in Juuma was incredible. The open air was very unusual for us. Not many people listening outside but through just the trees we had a captive audience of the inmates of the local prison.
The evening meeting was a true blessing and went on for over three hours. The people would not go home!
Today was an open air in Kaajani and a small talk in the local christian bookshop.
Friday 27th of July 2012 09:05:02 PM
Yesterday saw high temperatures and millions of mosquitoes.
The International Night at the church in Kuhmo went very well with good audience participation during my singing spot.
I am still feeling pain from my shoulder and find it difficult getting in and out of the van.
I am speaking at the other side of Nurmes tonight and Kajaani tomorrow.
Two years ago we got a load of gospels delivered over the border and assisted another mission in obtaining supplies. I have been told that Every Home Crusade in Northern Ireland is printing another 18 tonne for them for delivery ASAP.
Isn't God Good.
Thursday 26th of July 2012 08:13:05 AM
I must first of all pass on my deepest sympathy to my friend Brian and his family on the loss of his mother. I wish I could be with him at this time but he knows that our prayers are with him.
Today has been a day of sunshine and showers with tonights meeting the high point of the day. I was able to sing a hymn in Finnish and it really pleased the congregation. I don't know who was the most surprised ! them or me.
Open air in the morning and a meeting in the evening.
Please pray for me at this time. I hurt my bad arm getting out of the van this evening and it is causing me pain. I think it is time for me to drive a NORMAL vehicle these big lorries and busus are beginning to take their toll on me.
Monday 23rd of July 2012 09:01:36 PM
Back in Kuhmo and very busy.
Because it is the chamber music festival here the town is over run with visitors.
Each morning it is open air meeting with many coming to hear the word in the market place.
Yesterday I was invited to speak at a caraven site and the tent was full to bursting. I got a terrific response to my testimony and many life story books were taken.
Tonight it was free church meeting and two meetings tomorrow.
Sunday 22nd of July 2012 07:41:36 PM
After a drive of over 1,000 Kilometres I am now over the border and into Finland. I hope to reach Kuhmo tomorrow morning and be in time for the first engagement.
I have been reading the last few enties on the visitors atrium and find it hard to believe the good things visitors are saying about me.
These messages give me the will to continue the task as long as I am able and in the Lord's will.
Please pray about the financial situation here. I have just used up all my Swedish money to half fill the diesel tanks but I know that "God" is able.
The trip to Britain cost a lot but the results have been fantastic with much Glory to our heavenly father.
Thursday 19th of July 2012 02:49:24 PM
At last I am back in Sweden after a great but very tiring trip around Britain. I am already hearing of answered prayers as God touched lives in special ways.
I leave here tomorrow for the long journey back to Kuhmo and a full diary for a few days.
Wednesday 18th of July 2012 12:25:23 AM
I have just heard that Ken was promoted to Glory yesterday evening.
He was a lovely man who had a deep faith in the Lord Jesus. I was able to pray with him last week and his mind was at peace. He was so grateful that I had travelled from the far north of Norway to pray for him.
I am now on board ship and heading for Wales before flying back to Sweden on tuesday.
