MY PRECIOUS SON, NATHAN, BECOMES A FINE ADULT, AT 18, OF WHOM WE ARE SO IMMENSELY PROUD.

He wrote to us "Thank you for giving me the best childhood I could ever have asked for."



I AM PROUD OF MY WRITING, FOR JESUS’S SAKE, THAT HAS HAD ME FOUND INNOCENT IN HEAVEN, BUT TWICE A CRIMINAL ON THE EARTH. THE FIRST IN 1990 WHEN I WROTE A BIBLICAL TEXT ON THE HOUSES OF PARLIAMENT IN PEACEFUL PROTEST ABOUT THE BOMBING OF YOUNG IRAQI RECRUITS DURING THE FIRST GULF WAR. THE SECOND, IN 2016 WHEN I WROTE ON MY BLOG, TO ALERT THE PUBLIC ABOUT A PAEDOPHILE, AND WAS SUCCESSFUL IN FORCING THE AUTHORITIES TO STOP HIM HAVING ACCESS TO CHILDREN. THERE WAS ALMOST A THIRD! IN 1997, WHEN I WAS ARRESTED FOR NAILING MY PROPOSALS FOR REFORM OF THE CHURCH OF ENGLAND ON THE DOOR OF CANTERBURY CATHEDRAL. WORDS ARE POWERFUL MESSAGES THAT CHALLENGE  CORRUPTION, CONFRONT THE WICKED AND CREATE A BETTER WORLD. JESUS IS THE WORD OF GOD AND HIS FOLLOWERS ARE CALLED  TO COMMUNICATE HIS WORDS,  IRRESPECTIVE OF THE COST.
"You brave, courageous and wonderful man. To stand up for the truth in the face of suppression and oppression is truly an act of a pure heart."

CAN YOU HELP BY GIVING ITEMS TO DISTRIBUTE IN GAMBIAN VILLAGES?

I am travelling to the Gambia in November, with my two older sons, to visit villages in need of water provision, as part of our project to supply deep bore hole, solar powered water pumps.We are only taking hand luggage for ourselves but placing 20 kg of luggage each in the hold, the total contents of which we will distribute in the villages.If you would like to send me any items for distribution or donations towards the same, I would be most grateful.If you want to check with me whether particular items would be suitable, do please text me on 07767 687711.Thank you
