Martin is married to Maureen and they have 4 grown-up daughters. His parents served in the British army, and he is 1 of 9 children. He was never aware of any spiritual input into his life both as a youngster or as a teenager. On leaving school he entered the electrical trade and life continued along the lines of living for self with no thoughts of the Lord. At the age of 41 he heard the gospel for the first time and the Holy Spirit started to work in his life. The road to his conversion was gradual as he heard more of the truth, but the day he was converted was unforgettable. After leaving Preston North End Football Ground on the way to a local public house he came under great conviction of sin and yielded his life to the Lord. Life has never been the same since! Martin’s desire is to follow the Lord one step at a time and to know Him in a more personal way.
