Joseph's Other Coats
"When my father developed Multiple Sclerosis, I was sent from the UK to Canton, China to live with my grandparents. My grandfather trained me in Kung Fu until I became the world champion, three years in a row.
After my beautiful Swedish fiancée, Aiya was killed in an automobile accident I lost interest in living, until a possible "cure" was found for my father's MS.
The treatment was expensive so I stole the money for it. It was in a Cypriot prison, that a missionary from Ireland showed me how that I could experience real freedom.
I was released and returned to England in November 1992 and although life has not always been a bed of roses I have felt God's goodness and His guiding hand time and again!
He has given me a life again - a wife, a job, a home, a family in the people of God and as I enter the next "adventure" of my life, that of being a father myself I know that my heavenly Father has His hand upon me and just as He led me to Himself in that prison in Nicosia He will put me where He wants me and show me the path that my life will take from this point on for His glory! I invited Jesus into my life and felt freer inside that prison than I had ever felt outside of it.
I am now out of prison and waiting for God's next adventure."
