A really hectic couple of days have passed.
My friend John Lawrence of Weston super Mare has once again shown me that he is a true friend of the Lord. He came with me to Lancashire and drove the old van back here to Weston. The drive down took over eight hours because of the road works.
I was able to take John to Blackpool and we drove through the illuminations.
I think the highlight of the trip was when we parked outside the entrance to Blackpool Tower and enjoyed fish and chips.
The van will now be parked until a buyer is found and this week I hope to head for Faroe until Christmas.
Saturday 03rd of November 2012 11:50:35 PM
Still in Lancashire and preparing to drive to Weston tomorrow.
I have received news that my brother in law died a couple of weeks ago but I was not told because I was too far away to travel to the funeral. Please pray for my sister Irene and her family at this time.
I visited my twin sister Christine today and met up with her family. We lost contact nearly thirty years ago but God has everything planned.

I am still enjoying a time of rest and feeling much better for the break after so many years of toil.
I went for a breathing test yesterday after the X Ray a few weeks ago had showed shadows on my lungs. This had caused much concern amongst the doctors.
It was such a relief to me to find that once again " PRAYER WORKS"
The doctor was very surprised to find that the X Ray taken yesterday showed a perfectly healthy set of lungs with no trace of a shadow. The impossible has happened again.
The breathing test was cancelled and I was discharged by that doctor. I still await results from the body scan and stomach and bowel tests but have no concerns about the results.
I will continue resting and eating properly until the Lord speaks.
I hope to go to the Faroe Islands in the next few weeks.
Saturday 27th of October 2012 11:01:27 AM
Back in Lancashire and waiting to go for tests tomorrow.
Thursday 25th of October 2012 10:53:57 AM
I have just spent three wonderful days in Tobermore in Northern Ireland. I lived in this village for three or four years in the early 21st century.
It was really good to meet up with my old friend Gerald after a break of around five years and also His son Ian and family.
I move on tomorrow and slowly head for Britain.
Sunday 21st of October 2012 09:02:00 PM
All going really well over here.
I am back in the North after a terrific time in the South of Ireland. It was good to be speaking again and the meeting in Limerick on monday evening was a real boost for me. It was attended by many prayer warriors and was such a blessing.
I have had a few minor problems with the motorhome but they seem to be fixed now.
Still taking rest as required and feeling much better in health.
I attend hospital next friday for Lung Tests and then hope for some results soon.
Thursday 18th of October 2012 07:40:16 PM
I am still parked in Listowel and being forced to rest by my body.
I will be so pleased when things get back to normal and I can zoom around the world like Superman again. I just did not realise how much I was punishing this body of mine but now it is paying me back with interest.
This morning I was visited by two friends I have not seen for years.Mary and Desmond have prayed for me on a daily basis since we last met in 2004. I wonder how many more are so faithful????
I have just tested out the shower in the motor home and I am delighted and CLEAN.
Saturday 13th of October 2012 09:28:59 PM
After a splendid drive I am now in County Kerry. Parked in the car park of Listowel Christian Fellowship.
I met the leader of the church,J P Walsh this afternoon and we had a great time catching up on the work of the Lord since I last visited.
Tomorrow I am in Tralee and then onwards towards Cork.
Thursday 11th of October 2012 07:44:16 PM
All going well and finding time to rest and meet people.
I am finding out that I have more friends than I realised and I am so grateful to the Lord for his provision.
I hope to head south in the next few days and head for Kerry and Cork area.
Monday 08th of October 2012 12:34:25 AM
All going well and enjoying Northern Ireland !!!
I went to Hillhead Fellowship on sunday morning and was really well blessed. On Sunday evening the Lord led me to Limavady Baptist Church and I met up with some wonderful friends who made me really welcome. I was amazed at the number of people who knew about my health situation and came to assure me of prayer. I hope to be in Limavady again for Bible study on wednesday and the Lifeboat Fellowship in Dungannon on thursday. Then I will head south over the border.
Monday 01st of October 2012 08:52:28 PM
Following the Lord's leading I am now in Northern Ireland
Last night I visited Whitehead for the first time in over five years and met up with Mike and Graham. I was shocked to find how exhausted I became when talking to both these lovely Christians and I was really pleased that they did most of the talking.
This morning I had three visitors but had to keep the interviews quite short. I hope things will soon improve but it looks like slow but sure for a while.
Graham called again and took a couple of pictures which are now on the Pictures Page "Motorhome"
Please pray for my strength in the coming days.
Sunday 30th of September 2012 01:19:32 AM
Feeling better but still not 100%.
I have now left the camp site and heading for Scotland. The motor home drives like a dream and is causing no pain when driving. I will update again tomorrow.
Thursday 27th of September 2012 10:24:52 PM
I am now settled into my new home and very happy.It is very strange to be able to actually be able to wash up after each meal and to feel warm at night without a cold draught around my back.
I am still parked at a caravan site and slowly moving my belongings into the new home.
I am now in prayer and seeking the Lord's plan for the future.
Monday 24th of September 2012 11:19:52 PM
Praise the Lord oh my soul, and all that is within me, "Bless His Holy Name"
I could just continue writing praise to our dear Heavenly Father for the Abundant Blessings He pours down upon me. But God desires more of each one of us than words.He desires to see us working to Glorify His Holy Name.
I have just moved into the motor home and will sleep here for the first time tonight.
I cannot find the words to express my gratitude to those who have contributed towards the purchase of my new home. All I can say is, Thank You and may the light of His Love fill your life with Blessings.
I am not ashamed to tell you that tears are rolling down my cheeks as I write this short entry.
I must thank the people of Salem Evangelical Church in the Faroe Islands for their gift towards the work.
I hope to take the motor home on a short outreach trip next week and find out how the Lord desires me to use His tremendous gift to His servant.
Please Pray my Health holds firm.
Sunday 23rd of September 2012 12:18:26 AM
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.
Saturday 22nd of September 2012 12:06:04 AM
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.
