 'Verses for the King'




'Verses for the King' is a worship poetry book for anyone who likes to explore or engage with God. Its author, Kelvin Fowler, is a New Zealander who has lived in countries as diverse as the Philippines, Scotland and Mexico. He is currently a Vineyard pastor in Klaipėda, Lithuania.

This book draws us to God, who creates beauty out of despair; fathers orphans and meets us in special places. Kelvin's passion for disadvantaged people and life in the 'now and not yet' shine through, bringing us face to face with a living Jesus.

Some of these poems have won awards, many of them have been performed at various venues across Europe.

'Verses for the King' will make an excellent gift.

Please join us in this adventure, be generous and pledge.

'Verses for the King' is being published by 'Vineyard International Publishing'. VIP is paying 50% of the publishing. Kelvin has to fund the rest. Among other things, his costs include printing, shipping and import duties. VIP and Kel will each receive 1000 books.

About the Author

Kelvin Fowler was born in a southern New Zealand village and grew up loving running, nature and dirt-track speedway.

His dance with Jesus began in the juxtaposition of 'New Age' culture and Sydney cafés and the cliff-faces, caves and canyons of rural New South Wales, Australia.

A call to the nations' minorities have been paramount to his dance. He has been blessed enough to count among his friends transvestites in Australia, drug addicts in Mexico, a husky in Canada, malnourished kids in the Philippines, alcoholics in Scotland and orphans in Lithuania.

For the last ten years Kelvin and his wife have been interceding through the legacy of the Soviet Union and planting a Vineyard church in Lithuania's port city of Klaipėda.

In-between times Kelvin likes to write, paint, take photos, ride his bicycle and listen to public radio and jazz.

An important notice

All prices are in New Zealand dollars. The exchange rates as of December 12 were approximately;
€1 = NZ$1.54
£1 = NZ$1.91
US$1 = NZ$1.18

The rewards do not include postage. Postage will be arranged when I receive the books and have a chance to weigh them. In effort to keep the price down, I will be very creative getting the books to you.

Thanks

Thank you so much to all of you who have been involved with this important step in my writing journey. It has been fun getting this far.

Thank you to all of you who will pledge; you are helping the adventure continue.

God bless you all.

Cheers Kelvin

Hello

I would just like to thank you all for dancing in this adventure with me.

We had 74 pledges, by 12 different nationalities, who pre-purchased 202 books & 32 badges raising a total of NZ$4200.

Well done everyone, God has been very kind and 'Verses for the King' will go to print.

The possible release date & venue will be sometime between March 18 & 24 in Wageningen, The Netherlands.

So some prayer-points.

I have had to get quite creative in transferring the money to the South African publisher. This needs to happen smoothly, quickly and cheaply.

We are having a few hiccups formatting the manuscript. It needs to be completed and at the publishers ASAP.

I need to have the books in my hands before a European Vineyard conference in March. We do not need any delays, especially at the printer, in transit and in Lithuanian customs.

Finally, it was very difficult to get a conclusive price, financially things will be tight. I do not need any more unexpected expenses. This being especially the case with Lithuanian customs.

Again thanks everyone for pledging, your generosity has been a little overwhelming.

The 'King's Verses' will start to find their way into your hands in March. For those receiving them by post, I will be in touch to sort out postage and delivery instructions after March 24.

God bless you all and thanks again.

Cheers Kel
