The Beginning

Written in


It’s July 2014 and I currently serve as the Director of Yeldall Manor, a Christian drug and alcohol rehabilitation centre in the south-east of England (www.yeldall.org.uk). I met my incredible wife, Mickey, in 1995 and we married in 2000. We have four fabulous kids – Daniel, Jemimah, Phoebe and JJ.

As a family we are preparing to move to Santa Cruz, Bolivia in order to launch Novō, a charity which will create transformational communities in developing nations – places where hurting and broken people can find healing, wholeness and hope. We plan to leave for Bolivia in May 2015.

This blog is intended to be a place where we can share the journey with those are on it with us – friends, family, and others who share God’s heart for the addicted.

I don’t exactly know what this is going to look like. What I do know is that as we move forward in pursuit of this vision we need to be connected with others and I’m hoping this blog will help us to do that!

If you’re up for it, please click on the link to the right and sign-up to follow this blog by email. There may be a bit of a flurry of updates to begin with but I promise not to inundate you with updates in the long run!
