The journey from the Faroe Islands was long and hard.
Norrona sailed from Torshavn seven hours early to try and miss a storm in the Atlantic. We sailed along the coastline of Norway to try and gain some shelter from the force eight to nine gale for a full day but the ship did a bit of rolling around.
I met up with some lovely people on board including a family I met a couple of years ago at a meeting. I was approached by a man of my own age as I was eating dinner on friday. He said he had always wanted to meet up with me so we spent time chatting. He now works in Denmark with his wife but has spent twenty years travelling the world on Logos 2 with Operation Mobilisation.
Saturday we docked in Hirtshals to a land covered in snow and ice. I had a 200 mile journey covering most of the length of Denmark to catch the evening boat from Esbjerg to Harwich.
Sunday I drove to meet up with Eric near London and we had a nice time together before I drove to Histon Baptist Church and met up with Kate and her family.
I am now resting outside Asda in Bristol for a day.
Wednesday 19th of December 2012 12:16:15 AM
It looks like I am moving away at the correct time.
Norrona has had a time change and I leave at 2pm instead of 9pm tomorrow. It looks like a bad storm is brewing in the Atlantic and the ship needs to get away to miss the heavy seas.
I will be at Siloa tonight for the Christmas Party !!!!!!!!!!
Wednesday 12th of December 2012 04:37:48 PM
Just arrived back at my pitch at the harbour after speaking to the youth at Siloa Evangelical Church in Fuglafjord.
The weather here is mild today but it can change very quickly. Because I cannot rely on Norrona getting me to Denmark and my connections to Ireland I have decided to leave here on thursday. This is the last sailing of the year and my last chance of getting to Britain this year.
My time here has been very rewarding and finance permitting, I will return next year.

I found out how the disciples felt during the hours of darkness last night.
At around 10pm the wind started to blow and the van started to sway.All through the night the wind blew and I could hear things banging against the side of the van. I looked out of the windows at the sea which was only 4 metre's away and was amazed to sea the waves being pushed out to sea. The storm was so bad the incoming tide was being pushed back.
Thank God the wind dropped at around 6am and I was able to get some sleep.
I inspected the van this morning and even though I heard many things hitting it I only found marks on the paint but no damage.
I drove to Skala this morning and even though I was tired I was able to preach to the children and then again to the adults during the Breaking of Bread service.
Sunday 09th of December 2012 10:30:25 PM
I have just arrived back in Fuglafjordur after a trip to Klaxvik where weather conditions were really grim. Snow, ice and cold.
Thursday night was a real success when I spoke to over a hundred young people and was really well received. Most of the young people remember me from the film shows I did a few years ago and a number of them came up me to share their memories and I was able to recognise most of them even though they had turned into young men and young ladies.One of the boys still had a number of tracts and bookmarks I gave him seven years ago.
Last night I travelled through the mountain tunnels to speak at another youth meeting.It was a very sad occasion for us all because "Maria" one of the girls I have spoken to many times was found in the Fjord a couple of weeks ago. She had slipped as she was walking by the water and because she could not swim she had drowned in the icy sea. She was always the first to turn up for youth club and was a glowing christian of sixteen years. Her father continues helping to lead the youth meetings each friday night. Please pray for the family.
The roads continue to be treacherous and a young lady died in a car crash yesterday just outside of Torshavn because of bad ice.
Saturday 08th of December 2012 07:12:11 PM
I have just returned to Fuglafjorder after a day and night in Skala.
Last night I spoke to the youth and was then taken to speak to the old folks at the local residential home.
Jens Beck and his father visit every two weeks to speak and sing to the residents.
It is great to meet Christian brothers who work tirelessly to spread the word of God in this way. Both meetings went very well and I enjoyed making new friends.
I am being asked to speak to many groups and assist in outreach but I am trying to be selective or I will be back to square one and in the hands of doctors again.
It is still very cold with snow and ice on the mountain roads and gusting wind from the sea.
Tuesday 04th of December 2012 05:37:02 PM
A signal at last.!!!!!!
It has been a great week on the island of Suderoy, but the weather has been real winter with snow and ice.
I had to bring out the plumber on 2 occasions for burst hot water pipes. In the end I had him change the piping in the living area for the sake of safety.
I was made very welcome on the Island and spoke to many people.
Today I spoke at the morning meeting at Siloa and was part of the International night and spoke and sang to a good number of people.
Weather still very cold and icy with snow on all the mountains. It looks very beautiful but looks can be very deceiving.
Sunday 02nd of December 2012 10:39:24 PM
It rained all last night and has cleared the roads of ice. I was stuck in the harbour area all yesterday as the ice was just too slippery for the tyres to grip.
A sponsor has been found to change all the tyres over to winter tyres and this should relieve the worry for the next few months.
It is great that the website has been getting around three hundred visitors each day but when am I going to see different people leaving a message either by Email or on the Visitors Atrium.
!!!!!!!!!!!!! Please be an encourager !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It is good that most of the work required on the Motor Home is now completed.
Gordon organised a carpenter to make an alteration to my bed and now I can get an extra person in for prayer meetings when I can organise one.
Last night Oliver and his son Johannes fitted two English sockets and a triple continental socket for me. This will make life much easier for me.
I awoke this morning to a totally white and very slippery world.
I went over the mountain to visit the Filadelfia Evangelical church because I had promised the carpenter on saturday morning.
The service was really good but the roads a real nightmare.It was like driving on a horizontal ice rink. The salt machines do not come out at weekends but I pray they will be out tomorrow morning.
Sunday 18th of November 2012 10:40:30 PM
I had breathing problems again this morning with lots of phlegm but now feel much better!!!
The weather is dry but very cold. It snowed again last night and the mountains look beautiful across the bay.
I was out to dinner with Oliver and family last night and within minutes of getting back to the van I was visited by Sofus.
Moving on today and heading towards Eida but must return to this area tomorrow for Oliver to install a couple of electric sockets for me. It is very difficult to get internet anywhere else on the Islands so please understand if I am off line in future days.
Friday 16th of November 2012 12:56:00 PM
The heavy rain has stopped for a while but I am sure it will return before the day is over. We never suffer from drought conditions in the Faroe Islands!!!!!!
I settled down for a night of relaxation and television last night, then the telephone rang and I was whisked away to speak to the local youth meeting.
A very successful meeting and a terrific welcome from over 50 young adults and children.
It is really great to be back.
Wednesday 14th of November 2012 01:27:04 PM
A week of not being able to connect to the internet.
I should have called on Eric last week but spent hours in a traffic jam on the M25 and had to continue onwards to catch the ferry to Denmark.
The ferry to the Faroe Islands left on Saturday and I arrived here this morning at 5am. The trip was long and boring with a nearly empty ship and much time was spent in my cabin watching TV.
Yesterday I was watching the service of Remembrance on Sky and was so moved to witness the laying of the wreaths by the leaders of the world taking time to remember those who died for OUR Freedom.
I have brought a small quantity of wooden crosses to put on the graves of British Soldiers here on the Faroes.
I was led to inscribe two crosses and dropped one over the side of the ship in the North Sea and the other one in the North Atlantic. This area was known as U-Boat Alley in the last war.
Please pray as I try to get back to work "Slowly"
Monday 12th of November 2012 10:56:44 PM
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.
Tuesday 30th of October 2012 10:23:57 PM
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.
