In 2000 after we had moved on from the Sports ministry I wrote that somehow I believed my best ministry years were yet to come - now 14 years later I am able to confirm such a statement, a statement made by many before me upon their senior ministry years.
Leading tours to the Holy Land was a highlight, as was the 2005 visit to Auschwitz and the Ukraine, along with the Country Town Tours and the Art - but for me, the two remarkable ministry adventures have been the Young Writers program and the Laguna Quays Respite for missionaries, mission and ministry. I shall write more on this, both these mission tasks are performed from my desk.
Delma's godly common sense, her role as the glue in our family and now ensuring I follow the holistic medical and pastoral care - are remarkable hallmarks.
Photo - it wasn't until I physically saw the Biblical 'Wilderness' did I comprehend its barrenness.
