For us, 1985, seven years into marriage, was a life-changing year. First, we experienced a Life in the Spirit programme at the beginning of the year, where it was prophesied that we would work together to build the Kingdom.
Then later that year, God did not waste time, we were invited to attend a ME weekend at Emmaus Centre in Arima. ME, we believed, was that call to Mission. And we were right, that weekend, building on the experience of Life in the Spirit, changed us in a way that continues until today. Later that year, Simone, our only daughter, was conceived. Truly life changing.
The weekend was a call to Mission. On the first Saturday following the ME weekend, we were visited by Vaughn and Merle Amow, who ever so sweetly, invited us to become a Team Couple and to commence writing our talks. At that time, we had two sons, Brett and Kirk, four years and three years respectively, and both Sandee and myself were working, yet we answered in the affirmative.
