I was just an ordinary guy, earning a living as a singer/entertainer in Scotland, doing Elvis impressions but I hit hard times and some friends suggested a way that I could make some easy money.
It sounded like a good idea at the time, just to get me out of trouble and that would be the end of it. So, I did a bit of (drug) couriering... and got caught.
I ended up in prison for 2 years.
An inmate lent me some of his Derek Prince Bible teaching CDs and I became really thirsty for the Word of God. I joined Inside Outreach for myself.
While I was listening to UCB radio one night, I had an experience I'll never forget, I saw a cloud through my cell bars and the face of Jesus. It brought me to my knees. I received the baptism in the Holy Spirit which changed my life.
The prison had a recording studio and I started writing some songs and was able to use the studio. People thought I'd gone "nuts" and was on the verge of a breakdown because I was reading my Bible so much and talking about Jesus. I had to see the prison doctor in the end to prove I was OK!
