I can always remember being interested in country pursuits and have always been interested in country pursuits and when I was 15 I learnt to ride for my Duke of Edinburgh Award. After I left school, I started work at the local Hunt Kennels and then went on to make my career with Foxhunting, eventually becoming Huntsman of the Dartmoor Foxhounds for 12 years.
When I was 14, I became concerned about my eternal future. I knew there was a real hell and didn't want to go there, and I knew there was a real heaven—but didn’t know how to get there! Whilst listening to a Christian radio broadcast, I heard someone explain that you must believe on the Lord Jesus Christ—so I did. I placed my trust in Jesus to save me—it was so simple! I met Margaret in 1974 and we were married the next year. We grew as Christians together as we saw God's Word work in our lives and when challenged to offer our whole lives to God, we said, "Yes Lord". We then felt called into full time employed service for God, and after training, we pastored a Church in Suffolk for 3 years before moving to Somerset to pioneer a Church in Bridgwater, which we pastored for 5 years. In 1999 we moved to Kent where we now pastor the Deal Pentecostal Church. I am also Senior Chaplain with the South Coast Ambulance Trust.
God always keeps His promises but learning to trust God is a life-long experience and we have experienced God’s provision in amazing ways. Instead of hunting foxes, I am now hunting people for God and as we have shared God’s Word in the UK and also in Albania, Latvia, Philippines, USA, Zambia, Zimbabwe, we have proven the Bible to be true: “I will honour those who honour me” (1Sam.2:30).
