Through and Beyond, TOGETHER Scary things that happen in childhood do not have to affect you forever. It was bewildering for this four year-old boy to leave my happy family in wartime "to be safe!" To be nearly shipwrecked made me terrified, then fearful throughout childhood. My parents never stopped loving us from afar, and praying. Our new American family had faith and love too. Peace did come. We did return to England! There we moved to Ilford, Young fun-loving Christian friends there accepted stuttering little me. As I grew up still feeling fragile, they pushed me to apply for college when I often felt worthless. When God heard my cries of desperation in a phone box outside the college, He healed me amazingly. I began to feel that the Creator was guiding me towards a very creative career. Jesus said "Ask." I prayed to be shown His Way. He had heard and guided through and beyond difficult times. So God gave fresh courage to go on to work with criminals and others who struggled with life. I learnt that those who really want to change can be helped. So, led by the Wonderful Counsellor I found myself starting a new Christian helping service called "Listening Post." This book is about my travelling companions through life. It tells how we learned together to help struggling people to move from despair to peace. Best of all are accounts offered by nine people who found lasting freedom beyond their struggles. Christians of all denominations put theological differences aside by coming TOGETHER to set up Christian Counselling services. Through describing these stories, we hope others like you will be encouraged. Please, put differences aside. Be single-minded. Listen to God. He hears you. He will help you listen to learn and learn to listen. Then find that real change is possible today, "With God all things are possible"
