Trevor & his wife Dina - Dina's testimony is also on this site
The next Christmas holidays at home in Ipswich I was to be found delivering tracts from door to door, whereas a year or two previously I had been going round the houses selling the Socialist Worker.
I am glad to say that at Easter 1970, shortly
after my conversion, I was able to write to Harry Jeffrey, the lorry driver, with the news. He wrote back saying that although he made a habit of witnessing in his cab to hitch-hikers, I was the first one known by him to have become a Christian.
Eight years later I had the pleasure of receiving him and his wife as guests at our wedding.
Bible Reading often given when I relate this in a meeting: 1 Cor 1:18 – 25.
“For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. For it is written:
“I will destroy the wisdom of the wise,
And bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.”
Where is the wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the disputer of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of this world? For since, in the wisdom of God, the world through wisdom did not know God, it pleased God
through the foolishness of the message preached to save those who believe. For Jews request a sign, and Greeks seek after wisdom; but we preach Christ crucified, to the Jews a stumbling block and to the
Greeks foolishness, but to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God. Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men.”
