Restoring the Foundations
Andy and Mandy Drake
Salisbury, Wiltshire United Kingdom
Healing House Network
We have been married for 12 years, each of us bringing three children into our second marriage. We are now blessed with two daughter-in-laws, a son-in-law and a beautiful granddaughter. Our growing family are very important to us and we have learned the hard way how important it is to continually work at relationships and never to take things for granted.
Andy was born and raised a farmer (definition: a man outstanding in his field.) Mandy followed a career in teaching, which was how they met as divorced parents at parent/teacher consultations. Raising 6 teenagers in a blended family took precedence over a full time job for Mandy. For the past ten years, she has combined family life with short-term mission to many countries and ministering within the local community. Andy made a life-changing decision two years ago when he sold his dairy herd and decided to pursue full time ministry.
We love sharing our home on the farm and hospitality is very central to our philosophy of life. As we have been blessed, we like to pass on that blessing to others.
Connection to Restoring the Foundations
Receiving Thorough Format Ministry was life-changing for us in our marriage. We were able to see how much ‘stuff’ had come with us into the marriage, not only from our past hurts, but also from our generational lines. It was so clear we had been set-up to fail because of this. Once we recognized this and dealt with it we had a completely different relationship and it has been growing from strength to strength ever since. As we have continued to receive ministry and self-minister, we have found an amazing level of freedom that has not only enabled us to have a greater depth of intimacy with each other and our Heavenly Father, but also has had a far reaching effect in our families.
Becoming Healing House Network qualified has enabled us to reach out beyond our local community, to a broader cross-section of people and join an amazing international team who share the same vision of healing the world, one person at a time. We chose to train and qualify in the States at the International Training Centre, immersing ourselves in the culture of RTF for four and a half months. We offer individual ministry, couples ministry and lead seminars to promote and train in RTF.
