  1. Gunvor Rekstad

    Reading Strands of Destiny has been an amazing ‘walk alongside you’ as you share how God has led you from early childhood into the calling on your life. What a walk and what stories!
    Thank you so much Peter, for sharing these precious stories from you heart, giving God all the glory. It is done in such an inspiring and faith building way. It produces awe, strength and endurance as we, too, continue to trust God for “the impossible”, in His service.

  2. Hazel Tingley

    I thoroughly enjoyed reading your latest book – I struggled to put it down and almost stayed up all night to read it in one go! It lifted me in an incredible way and stirred such an excitement in my whole being. It brought me joy and laughter too. Thank you for writing such a wonderful and inspiring book and for sharing your heart in honesty and love.

  3. Fatima Yakubu

    When I started reading Strands of Destiny, I could not put it down until 5am the following morning! This is a story about how God works through individuals that have a heart for His Kingdom. It gives everyone hope that God has a plan for each one of us if we are prepared to walk closely with Him – a powerful story.

    This is a most interesting book whether you know Peter or not. He is an amazing man who, under God, has achieved so much. A MUST read! Challenging and faith-building.

    I would recommend this book to everyone. Taste and see that the Lord is good, His glory goes on forever!! As someone who has been healed and delivered by the Lord through Ellel Ministries, reading this book brought me to tears. Peter has given so much of himself, to be used by our Father and the Lord has been faithful and done amazing things through his obedience! This book is a must read for believers, especially if you’re on the fence about healing and deliverance in the world/Church today.

    I thank God for this man’s obedience, which has lead to healing
    , spiritually and physically, in my own life through Ellel Ministries USA. I like Peter’s humbleness and honesty and his willingness to share his journey with others. It has encouraged me. I highly recommend this book for those who know part of the story behind Ellel USA, and also to those who know nothing about this ministry. The rest of the story is yet to come! Praise God for His wonderful mercy in establishing this ministry in the USA!

  7. Beatriz Benestad

    I have just finished STRANDS OF DESTINY …. I could hardly put the book down from start to finish. The humility, honesty and walk of faith is considerable – so many pearls of wisdom, learned the hard way, and forged in the afflictions of the dark nights of the soul. This, I believe, is one of the most honest and important books I have ever read!

  8. Jim Murdock

    I have been unable to put it down since starting to read it. I have been amazed and deeply impacted by all I have read and l have only got to Ch. 9! Thank you so much for your faithfulness to the vision and persistence in seeing it through.

  9. Margaret Silveste

    I have been so blessed by Strands of Destiny – an amazing story of God’s purposes, leading, faithfulness and humble obedience over so many years.

  10. Angela Davidson

    I couldn’t put it down. I wept, rejoiced, was astonished and astounded and marvelled at the miracles! It could have a subtitle, ‘Miracles Today’. I am doling it out to my friends including my pastor!

  11. Pat Mellon

    Fascinating testimony of God’s guidance and provision! Loved it.

  12. david b brown

    Excellent examples of Gods power and grace at work over many years of service. Hard times when we go our own way. Blessings when we obey God even when times are tough.Great book – read it in a week. Will read it again.

  13. Louie Laing

    Enjoyed this book because it left you wanting to know God the way author did. It also left you wanting to meet and spend time with the author. I didn’t want to put this book down and did not want the book to end. As you read you feel like you are on an amazing journey with God.

  14. Mr. P.H. Dann

    I can say with utter conviction and gratitude that this book is a magnificent antidote to all that is banal and trivial in today’s society so desperate for answers. Read this book with a open heart, be utterly encouraged even in the midst of many difficult times pressures and sad perplexing and often dispiriting news headlines…. or personal struggles. This book rocks! Be refreshed, challenged, stimulated, revived, its beauty for ashes. 100% recommend.

  15. Roy and Edith

    An amazing book! What a wonderful testimony to all that the Lord has accomplished through a life wholly surrendered to Him. A joy to read – It truly is a treasure.

  16. Morris Ruddick

    The world is looking. The world is looking for the reality of God. What I found in “Strands of Destiny” is the real deal. As I reflect on Peter Horrobin’s story, it is on several levels that I highly recommend it. It is a compelling story, an adventure of a life of faith. It is a brutally honest autobiography of a man who has continually reached for a standard higher than himself. Over the course of this man’s lifetime have been a sequence of miracles and the consistent operation of the supernatural, which can only be explained as the result of a very serious and honest-with-himself prayer-life. The story is rich in the substance and practicality which defined the First Century Church, which turned the world upside down, or more correctly expressed, turned it right-side up. “Strands of Destiny” also contains the unfolding of an amazing business model, driving the incredible growth of the practical outworking of his ministry, Ellel Ministries, and his passion to bring healing and help to others. It is a model operated in partnership with and in response to clear and distinct guidance from the Holy Spirit. All this reflects a consistent humility, fear of the Lord and wisdom incorporated in the sequence of steps defining his life and ministry and the ministry associates he has mobilized. Their thrust of bringing healing and restoration to the broken has grown to reflect facilities in 30 nations of the world. “Strands of Destiny” represents a breath of fresh air for the uncompromising rigor and talents of those the author has mobilized and trained to bring the Lord’s healing power to the afflicted and destitute. This remnant of practitioners live lives conforming to this Kingdom standard in making a difference in a world wrought with suffering. Yet, more than any of these other dimensions, this story reflects the Kingdom of God with all its original gifts and power operating in a world challenged by and wrought with corruption and falsehoods. As already noted, it reflects the “real deal” and in my view, the fullness of the way that Jesus intended for the spiritually mature to live and to serve.

    I just could not read one more page without telling you how blessed I am by reading Strands of Destiny. I find myself praising the Lord with each page. Your heart comes through so fresh and so real. I have had tears streaming down my face in thankfulness to our Lord and Saviour – and I am only half way through!!!!!

Peter Horrobin

Peter Horrobin is the Founder of Ellel Ministries International, which began in 1986 as a ministry of healing in the north-west of England. The work is now established in over thirty-five different countries, providing teaching, training and personal ministry opportunities. (www.ellel.org)After graduating from Oxford University with a degree in Chemistry, Peter spent a number of years lecturing in College and University, before leaving the academic environment for the world of business. Here he founded a series of successful publishing and bookselling companies.In his twenties he started to restore a vintage sports car (an Alvis Speed 20) but discovered that its chassis was bent. As he looked at the broken vehicle, wondering if it could ever be repaired, he sensed God asking him a question, "You could restore this broken car, but I can restore broken lives. Which is more important?" It was obvious that broken lives were more important than broken cars and so the beginnings of a vision for healing and restoration was birthed in his heart.A hallmark of Peter's ministry has been his willingness to step out in faith and see God move to fulfil His promises, often in remarkable ways. His book, Strands of Destiny, tells many of the amazing stories of what God has done in the past thirty years.To keep in touch with Peter’s occasional topical writings, scriptural insights and comments on national and international events, please subscribe to his Blog at www.peterhorrobin.comPeter has written many books including The Complete Catalogue of British Cars. And for the past thirty-five years he has been the editor of Mission Praise, one of the largest-selling hymn and song books in the UK and originally compiled for the visit of Billy Graham in 1984.In this season of their lives, Peter, and his wife Fiona are concentrating on writing so that all their knowledge and experience can be made permanently available in book form through Sovereign World Ltd and other publishers around the world. His book Healing Through Deliverance is now a Christian classic.See Peter Horrobin's page for more information.
