Set in a small village in Cambridgeshire, Margaret recounts her dramatic conversion in 1970, which led to her heart and her home being open to sixty-five people in forty-five years.
Led by God, Margaret and her husband, Tony, moved from three to six and then ten bedrooms to accommodate their growing “family.” Their “Liquorice Allsort” residents added great richness to their lives.
During their early Christian life, their son was killed in a road accident which, far from crushing their faith, made them stronger than ever, and their witness resulted in a small revival in their Anglican church.
Eventually, in 1982 they made room in their hearts for many more people when, controversially side by side, they pioneered and pastored a lively and successful Charismatic church for twenty-five years .It was prophesied that they would be like two Shire horses pulling a plough.
Margaret clearly heard God speak and direct her to minister to others and to trust God for everything from her own clothing to buying houses. As a result, she is very keen to teach others how to hear God for themselves.
It has always been Margaret’s aim to love God and love people, whatever the cost.
