Ben and I were sightseeing around Portsmouth this week with the man who died last night.

While Jenny and Christine were visiting the grandchildren this week
in Blackpool, Nigel and Elaine,Ben and myself were seeing some of the sights round Portsmouth.
Nigel and Elaine kindly invited us out to Perfect Pizza in North Harbour. The picture above is one of theirs taken on another occasion, but it is very similar to our view at the Pizza Hut.
So can you feel my shock as I relay the news that after battling pneumonia and fluid on the lungs later in the week, and asking for prayer in the last two days, Nigel weakened and died last night back home in Leicester. As a couple they were lights for the Kingdom on Dupont Close. Elaine's life will change immediately, after being a continual carer and enabler for Nigel.
Part of our meeting was devoted to praying for Elaine and her family at this time.
The story began here in the Inspire magazine.I was so struck by the tale I did a post on it, then a second one about the significance of their lives. Nigel and Elaine contacted me on this very blog and our lives sort of connected from here, on Facebook, and a couple of visits to our home and Havant Church. Havant again did this amazing thing on the first meeting occasion, without knowing any of their story at that point began prophesying in from all sides, specific directional words for them.
Like Rob Rufus and Morris Cerullo, I am unwilling to change my theology to fit circumstances, believing that Jesus came to destroy all the works of the evil one, and He suffered a specific 39 lashes which is the same number as the 39 main classifications of sickness. But now we do not yet see all things subjected to him. But we do see Him who was made for a little while lower than the angels, namely, Jesus.Hebrews 2 :8-9. Nigel, however gets release from horrible confining circumstances and gets to be with Jesus.
