I am originally from North Wales, where I met and married my wife, Lynne in 1990. We have two grown-up children, Leon and Adele and three grandchildren. I live in Poole, Dorset and attend Waters Edge Elim Church.
My first experience of Estonia was in 2013 when I drove from England with a family from our church. I was impressed with the beauty of the countryside, covered with ice and snow. Even the sea was frozen! I was also impressed with the people, who were so hungry and open to God, despite having to cope with heavy burdens. I played keyboard in worship services and had opportunities to pray with people. I also took part in a prayer walk, sounding the shofar in the village where we were staying. I felt after returning home that I had “unfinished business” there and prayed about when I might make another visit.
On another visit, I felt the Lord was calling me to bring the message of the Father heart of God to Estonia. This message has been foundational for me in ministry at home, but this was a specific assignment, for a people who have suffered much from fatherlessness. Subsequent visits have helped confirm that call, which includes bringing hope and healing in a land where people have deep hurts and where there is much spiritual darkness.
