This section covers the years from my move to El Paso where I worked on an electronic control system and was involved with the Navigator Student Ministry at UTEP.  Then meeting Eva and marriage in the midst of returning to the UK.  It ends with my time working in London with STC.  There I was developing transatlantic telephone cables.  This ended when the Navigators asked us to join their student ministry.
