Elder Intern (pictured with wife, Wilma)

My wife, Wilma, and I have been part of Redemption (London and St. Thomas) for over 11 years. We were raised in Christian homes and, by God’s irresistible grace, we both came to know Jesus as our personal Saviour during our teen years. Since then, we have faithfully served our God as He has called and gifted us.


We were married in 1990 and have been blessed with three children who are all married and serving the Lord. We praise God for His continued love and grace!


I enjoy my work as a Forensic Engineer, and Wilma has recently retired from managing a retirement home.


My life verse is Jeremiah 15:16:


“Your words were found, and I ate them,
and your words became to me a joy
and the delight of my heart,
for I am called by your name,
O LORD, God of hosts.”
