Bio for Rev Donald N Martin (Gardenstown) who will be leading the tour;
Born and raised on the Isle of Lewis in the Western Isles of Scotland. My Mother tongue is Scottish Gaelic and my early career was in retail and wholesale management 1972-1988.
I became a Christian in 1985, and soon knew my future was to be based in teaching the faith, so I began training for ministry as a second ‘Career’ or vocation in 1990.
I have been minister at Gardenstown since 1995 and due to retire from active ministry this year. God willing it will allow me to follow other avenues of Christian service. Our congregation has been actively supporting missions around the world for many years, providing them with practical and spiritual support.
Over the years my faith has taken me to Israel and Jordan many times, and numerous times as tour leader since 2008. I have preached in America, Africa and Brazil and Israel as well as over 3000 times in Scotland.
I am involved with groups who have Israel at heart, and have regularly had visitors from these groups and from Israel speaking at our church
I have been married to Suzanne since 1982 and we have 3 children; Gillian, James and Douglas. In my spare time (I’ve still to discover what that is,) I like photography, seeing new places, and have also taken a number of cruises to interesting places.
