Overview

Against all the odds, Patrick became a missionary to Japan. This story shows the various ways in which God worked in his life, and through him for the people of Japan. An account originally written for his daughters to explain their background, this is a vital book about work in what is still a culture resistant to the gospel.

"The heroes and heroines of this story are the handful of Japanese believers who catch the vision of becoming a local church (my first tears); the struggling home church in Deptford supporting their missionaries with realism; and the McElligott daughters facing, with their parents, the cost of separation for secondary education (more tears). The book is worth reading for the insight it gives into the emotional cost for parents and children alike." (Michael Griffiths)

About the Author

Against all the odds, a young man from southeast London became a missionary to Japan. This story shows the various ways in which God worked in Patrick's life, and through him for the people of Japan.

During their thirty years as missionaries to Japan with WEC and CLC, God graciously extended the McElligott's team. As responsibilities and needs increased, so the Lord added to the team, and through them, made the McElligott's long-term service in Japan a reality. Their lives testify that in God's hand nothing needs to be wasted and everything can be used to His glory.

Patrick has a PhD in Japanese poetry, and enjoys golf and fly fishing. Patrick has been a Pastor at Wycliffe Baptist Church, Reading since 2005. He is married to Sarah, and they have three grownup daughters and three grandchildren.

His autobiography, originally written for his daughters to explain their background, On Giants' Shoulders was first published in 1991, but is now also available as a downloadable ebook.
