In early October, the Friday night Fellowship Meeting at John & Linda Andrewski’s home in Mashpee, Cape Cod, was joined by the Yarmouth Ladies Bible Study Group, led by Pat Greene. Linda, Pat and these precious ladies had knitted many little baby blankets, scarves, beanies and little jackets for the orphans and brain-damaged babies of Odessa, Ukraine. They had brought these articles to the Home Meeting to be packed in a huge suitcase for me to take to Odessa in early November. The fellowship was very precious and the message on leaving a legacy for generations after ours was [...]

Refreshing Ministry in the USA

2021-12-17T21:27:24-04:00August 3rd, 2018|

I had a really fruitful and enjoyable time of ministry in the USA in May. The first port of call was Memphis, Tennessee where I caught up with good friends, one of whom, Ned LaWarre, arranged for me to minister to the executive team of the company where he worked. It was tremendous ministering to this team of Christian men and encouraging them in their ministry to the community through their business. A good friend, Frank Webb, drove all the way from Columbus, Mississippi to Memphis to see me. The first Sunday ministry in a wonderful House Church in LeRoy, Illinois [...]

Exciting USA Ministry

2021-12-17T21:27:25-04:00May 5th, 2018|

Overland Missions Conference and Staff Retreat in Florida want to thank you so much for your faithful prayers for my recent mission and travels in the United States. This winter in the United States was not the best they've experienced, with heavy snow falls and blizzards, but your prayers moved God's hand to facilitate breaks in the bad weather for me to travel safely. I really did appreciate that. On 2nd January I was due to fly from Brisbane to Los Angeles, and then on to Orlando to speak at a missionary convention for my nephew, Philip Smethurst's organisation - [...]

Wonderful time of ministry ~ May 2017

2021-12-17T21:27:27-04:00July 4th, 2017|

After a brief time in the UK I flew to Massachusetts to visit some dear older friends in Hingham Massachusetts – Ron and Terri Golding. I had a wonderful few days of fellowship before travel-ling to Cape Cod to share with a group of precious people at a Home Group Meeting at John and Linda Andrewski’s home in Mashpee. It was great to help and encourage these wonderful people to keep bringing others to Jesus and meet their needs. What sweet fellowship I have with them each time I’m with them. After that I flew to Florida where it was [...]

Wonderful Ministry in USA

2016-10-25T14:58:52-04:00October 15th, 2016|

I had four weeks of very fruitful ministry in USA against the backdrop of uncertainty surrounding the upcoming presidential elections. Arriving in Bloomington in late August, I spent a couple of days resting up with my hosts, Steve and Janet Eddington. The House Church meeting in LeRoy, Illinois was very sweet and the worship was wonderful. The prophetic message I had for this congregation was well accepted and the fellowship over lunch was excellent. Sunday evening I enjoyed at the Harvest Family Church with a small, but enthusiastic group of people. Monday lunchtime I met with the group [...]

Wonderful Ministry In the USA

Delightful Wedding In an old historical Cape Cod Church It was my privilege to help conduct a wedding for longstanding friends in Cape Cod, Massachusetts. John & Linda Andrewski’s son, Christian married his childhood sweetheart Lizzie (Elizabeth Munafo). The wedding was held at the West Barnstable Congregational Church that dates back to 1616. It was a delightfully joyous occasion and during my address, that included a gospel challenge, a somewhat indifferent man shouted out “Amen” that jolted everyone. I sensed that a quite few people came closer to a faith in Jesus during that beautiful service. The next morning it [...]
