Elaine and I were commended to the Lord’s work on 1st Sept. ’84 by the Bitton Park Road Gospel Hall, Teignmouth, Devon, England. Five years later we moved from Devon to N. Yorkshire, to particularly establish the first PBS work in the north of England. We enjoyed 11 happy years with the saints in Woodfield Gospel Hall in Harrogate, with our three girls. Following our involvement in starting a new PBS work in Canada in 1999, we moved as a family to Portage la Prairie, Manitoba in August 2000 and continue to live there. Each of our daughters are married and also live in Manitoba and are in fellowship in assemblies in Austin, Mitchell and Portage la Prairie and we are richly blessed to have 10 grandchildren.  The assembly meeting at the River Road Gospel Hall is our spiritual home. Our present focus of service falls into three areas:

1. PBS work (Postal Bible Studies)

In N. America – publishing, printing & distributing through the mail, free of charge, monthly PBS lessons for all ages. Approx. 2100 students (children, teenagers & adults) in Canada & USA.

In St. Lucia, W. Indies – supplying free PBS booklets (containing 24 lessons) to 17 schools across the island, for use in Religious Education lessons. That reaches approx. 4500 students aged 4-16 years old. (Morning school assemblies are also undertaken when visiting there.)

[Note: More details can be learned by going to the PBS CENTRE on the GTC website.  Due to having the PBS Centre listed also, we had to supply a different email address to GTC for ourselves. However, it is linked directly to the one we prefer to be used – pbs110@mts.net]


2. ‘Treasure Seekers’ Children’s Series 

Week long series of children’s meetings; held in halls, tents or community centres in support of existing assembly children’s work, in connection with a pioneer work or as a PBS outreach.

3. Assembly Testimony 

Seeking in particular to help and encourage small or isolated assemblies through ministry or Gospel outreach. (In areas as far apart as the Prairies, the Atlantic east coast and the West Indies.)
