"I was born in the Orkney Islands in Scotland in 1955. My mother's maiden name was Eunson, indicating some Norwegian/Scandinavian background." "I was the sixth child of eight. At age 18, I left to study theology at London Bible College (now London School of Theology). I graduated in 1976, with an honors degree in Theology, and also left engaged to Sue Middlemiss, with whom I had 27 years of marriage. We moved to Cobham, Surrey, to participate in a reasonably new expression of church there. Ben and Judith were born in 1981 and 1984 respectively. In February, 2005, Sue passed away, and I continued to live in that area in Leatherhead, until the end of 2008. I still journey with many of those same believers, and have friends in many places in the world." "In August 2008, I proposed to Gayle (Crawford), and we were married at the end of November 2008. I had known Gayle for some 10 years, but for the previous 4 years she had been living in Inverness. We found our paths converging and a wonderful relationship has developed. By the time you read this we will have been relocated into Palma de Mallorca."
