Last Sunday after attending the "Broken Chains" meeting I dropped by Reg's house to see him and make arrangements for a small 70th birthday party on Tuesday 20th June. Sadly Reg did not quite get to have a 70th birthday. I found him on the floor of his bedroom at 5 pm. He had taken one step out of bed, fell forward, and was dead before he hit the floor. His heart gave out just then. He had a terrible lung condition, COPD and could hardly catch his breath for the last two years.
In October 1988 I began work at the fisherman's Mission in Ayr. About a month later Willie Buchan came to stay at the Mission and committed his life to the Lord. He is still going on strong. Shortly after meeting Willie, I got him to introduce me to Reggie, he was on the drink that day , on the north side of the "New" bridge in Ayr. I said, " God has sent me from Australia to talk to you." Reg said , " I hope He has given you some money to give me." I said," You can have a free coffee at the Fisherman's Mission."
Thus began a very long friendship. Reg committed his life to Christ on 10th May 1989. He had many ups and downs over the years, He finally gave up the grog about 13 years ago.
There will be a postmortem next Monday and all being well the funeral will be on Thursday 29 June. Committal in Ayr Cemetry at 1pm , service at New Prestwick Baptist Church 2pm , afternoon tea starting at 3pm.

On the train to the conference, I lady who knew me, and was also on the way to the conference, told me about a baby I had helped save. She is nearly 2 years old now. Then a lady at the meeting said she had heard me preach in Hobart.
Several people then said how happy they were that Teresa May was doing a coalition with the Democratic Unionist Party ( DUP ) from Northern Ireland. These are pretty much all born again Christians and very pro-life. Who would have thought there would be a good pro-life influence in Westminster.
