Who Are We?

Many thanks to the copy right owners of the translations used.  It is much appreciated -

Who am I?

Since this is by and large the work of one person, you may want to know a bit about me.

I am Derek Leaf, former leader of the UK Navigator’s Student Ministry.  I am married to Eva and we have 4 children.

Much of my life story appears in the sections on Experiences of faith.

I also write a blog which you can read at

Shuna George.

Three elements of one picture

Father-Creator God

The feet of Him who brings good news.
