Speaker: Mr Peter Ferry
Speakers Background Information
Mr. Peter Ferry was born in Scotland. He was saved in Glasgow, Scotland in his early teens and baptized outdoor in very cold water. He was an Army Cadet and at the age of 18 became a full time soldier, intending to remain in the army. The Lord called him to full time Christian work when he was in Berlin in 1953. However he was a soldier and could not respond to the call at that time. As a soldier he was in Malaya during the Emergency and at that time the Lord showed him the need for missionaries in Thailand.
In 1955, Mr. Ferry obtained release from military service and went to Bible College in England. He also studied linguistics with a view to learn Thai and if necessary do translation work. After finishing his studies, he served the Lord as an Evangelist with children all over UK. In 1958, he was commended to the Lord's work by assemblies in Glasgow and he arrived in Thailand in 1959.
Mr. Peter was married in Taiping at the end of 1961 to a young lady he had met in Taiping Gospel Hall, during his time in Malaya as a soldier. They have two children and nine grandchildren. Later this year, they will have their first great grandchild. They have pioneered new work in some parts of Thailand. Most of their time has been in the south of Thailand but they had served nine years in Bangkok.
Mr. Peter has taught the Word of God in most Asian countries by invitation from Brethren Assemblies. Earlier this year, he taught at a Chinese New Year Conference in Beijing. His base is now in Phuket where he ministers in four churches each month. He works with both the Thai and the Sea Gypsy people. He also does some translation work.
Every year, AFC organizes a camp to provide working adults in the assemblies a time of
rejuvenation away from work.
And this year, we are planning to run AFC 2016 in Phuket!
This years theme is about Money | Profit and Loss, its a series we have embarked on since 2011 to discuss areas of a Christian working adult life where one can relate to:
2011 - Overview | issues facing christians today
2012 - Church | some assembly required
2013 - Country | the idea of nation building
2016 - Money | profit & loss
When was the last time you thought about money how to get it, how to spend it, how to save it, how to invest it, or how to borrow it?
It's an important subject, and there certainly is a place for saving, for wise planning, and for meeting your needs. Let's learn what the Bible says about handling money and God's plan for giving it. Come along to fellowship with old friends and make some new ones too!
See you there!
