Stephen & Gail were commended to the Lord’s work in Malawi in 2003, taking up residence in the city of Zomba (Southern Region) until changing family circumstances required them to relocate to their native Northern Ireland in 2011.
They maintain active participation in the growing work in Malawi, making, on average, 4 or 5 shorts visits each year, one of which usually involves a Seed Sower type team outreach (see Malawi Gospel Outreach). Stephen is also involved in Gospel preaching and Bible Teaching among the majority Chichewa-speaking people of Malawi.
In recent years Gospel literature publication and distribution has been a major growth area in the work in Malawi. To facilitate this and exciting new opportunities to take the Gospel to prison inmates, Stephen and Gail became founding Trustees of Southern Africa Literature Trust, a UK-based charitable organisation which provides Christian Literature and targeted humanitarian aid.
As well as ministering the Word and preaching the Gospel at home and abroad, Stephen is also a Trustee of Seed Sowers UK, which takes up increasing amounts of his time. Together with their son (Philip) they are in fellowship in Ebenezer Gospel Hall, Bangor (NI).
