About Derrence
Joined June 2014
Pastor Derry.

I am a Minister, Christian church. Ex missionary, Ghana, W. Africa, Cape Town, Kimberley, Johannesburg, South Africa.

Presently and pleasantly married 63 years to wife Donna who grew up in Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin. I grew up in Des Plaines, Illinois.

Donna and I were missionaries in Cape Town, Kimberley, Johannesburg, South Africa and Accra Ghana, West Africa for 12 years.

This followed a stateside ministry in Wisconsin, Minnesota and Indiana of over 30 years. We have always been active in sharing the gospel with every one and helping others as much as we could. Wish we could have done a lot more.

We continue to serve missions in the Caribbean, Haiti and Central America.

I think I will still be preaching when Jesus returns, Hope so, anyway.

We recently moved from Orlando to Palm Bay, Florida in October, 2017.

My goal is to make money online in order to underwrite and sustain several Christian mission projects.

You can read more about us at missionsforchrist.org. and on my websites at "Follow Me On" (Far right side below my posts.)

Thanks for following me, Derrence!

I hope I can bring value in some form or other to everyone I meet. Even if its just to have them smile or laugh.

I hope you enjoy watching me as I go from where I am today to wherever the hell I am tomorrow. ;-)

I've been here less than a week and cannot wait to get back online and get to work and interact with the community.

Once again, thanks!

Hello Derrence. I'm very glad the Lord helped me find you here on WA. My wife and I are currently retired and living in Medellin, Colombia. We have several ministries here, one of which is helping establish the first English-speaking Christian church in Medellin. Our focus is ministering to all the US and Canadian Expats and other English speakers who live or want to live in "The City of Eternal Spring".

I have a website and two Facebook pages tied in with our ministries. Our church is Grace Church Medellin, and if you jam those words together and add ".com" you will find us. Our other ministry is our Facebook page called "Live and Serve Christ in Latin America". Please check us out. All input and advice would be very much appreciated.

Hi Pastor Derry

Thank you for hitting the "Follow Button". It is a pleasure to meet you.

Small world I see - Have you been back to SA since the sixties?
A lot has changed here since them, some good and some not so good, but still an awesome country!

I really like your reasons for making money online as there is not enough charity in this world - Keep up the good work and keep inspiring others like myself to try and make a difference, however small.

Kind Regards
Ron from Durban, South Africa

Hi again Ron! We have not been back to South Africa. Thanks for your good reply. Too busy with other missions now.

It would be nice to visit South Africa again. Made many friends there.

Many good memories of a beautiful country. I am sure it is still beautiful.

Hello Derry ... thank you for the follow. Congratulations to you and your wife. My wife and I are going on #57.

We met in high school in a biology class. Dated and even went steady for a while. Kind of went our own way during college years, but somehow got back together after college. We were married in 1962.

I wish you the best on your WA journey. It's such a worthy goal.

Hey, Derrence! Thanks for the connection and great to meet you!

I checked your website. You may want to check the Radio Broadcast audios. I couldn't hear them even with the speakers all the way up. I usually get my eardrums almost blown out on other audio/video at that level.

Hi Derrence

Nice meeting you!

Thanks for the follow and for also allowing me to connect with you and your network!

Africa must be an interesting adventure! Have always thought that it would be fun to see the safari!

One of the ways to list your websites or social media links is to list them on the lower right side of your profile page.

If you are not sure what I mean, you can check out my profile page and you will see an area on the lower right side where I have mine listed as an example.

Wishing you a successful year here in WA!

Have a nice week!

Hi Derrence

Africa is an interesting topic!

An area that has fascinated me about Africa is Ethiopia! I met a man who had lived close to this region who was a Christian. My main interest though was on the topic of the supposed Ark of the Covenant in the mountains there.

This man said the area was very hard to get access to visit. Many risks!

I also met a person who did the Masa Safari trip with her Chinese lawyers. They stayed in a tent which was divided with living quarters. It even had a fireplace in it!

If you wish to connect with me I am usually on Instagram because of my interest in photography.

Have a great week!

Hello Derrence And Welcome To Wealthy Affiliate.
Since you joined you will perhaps have come to the conclusion that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.

You must keep referring to the training.
If you get really stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 440+ blogs I have published within WA.

Feel free to send me PM anytime you get stuck and I will endeavour to point you in the right direction.

You have decided to follow me and I will follow you as well.
Have a great day.

Hi Derrence, nice to hear from you. I look forward to getting to know you my new WA friend. Sorry about the delay in responding but I am a bit slow at the moment. Trying to do too many things at once.

OK, let's see. I lived in Ghana when very young. I lived in Kimberley but not as you know it - Kimberley British Columbia! I don't write but love to read.

You have been here for a few months now so how are you doing with your website and social media. Once you have these you might want to think about putting the links here on your profile page.

You do this by going to the right of your profile page, down to the bottom where it says 'Follow me on' and click on it. Put your website URL and any social media URLs you have (and want to add). This way people like me can hop in, visit and leave a comment. This makes it easier for us to follow you as this will be a direct link. And extra traffic is always welcome.

You should also do some more blogs here on your profile page. These go into Google too so add to your online profile.

If you have time I would love it if you visited my website and left a comment on a post, any one will do. The site address is fantasy-sci-fi-vision.com

As soon as you have a website up and running let me know so I can return the comment.

Keep working hard, having fun and don’t forget to ask questions.

A very nice boss once told me, ‘Helen, when you ask a silly question everyone else breathes a collective sigh of relief because they don’t have to!’ And that is so true. No question is silly so ask away.

If I can’t help I might be able to point you in the right direction.

Now let us keep in touch.

Ciao
Helen

I hope things are going well. I know you are getting rolling within the training and there is ONE thing that always tends to confuse people and that is "what is my niche?".

I know, same thing happened to me when I started.

Thank you Derrence for the follow and many blessings to you here at WA. As a Premium Member you are probably aware of the AWESOME and FREE WA Keyword Tool we have unlimited access to.

This is the keyword research tool I have used exclusively after I became a Premium member 3+ years ago and it has helped me many times to find awesome keywords that have led to Google page 1 rankings.

I created very popular WA Training Tutorials, Part 1 and Part 2, on how to use the WA Keyword Tool for keyword research. If you have not seen it and would like to learn how simple it is to use and a little about keywords, click the below link when you have the time.

Hello Derrence,♫Welcome! Nice to meet you ツ I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun on WA. Thank you for adding me to your network.

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I made an addition for After The Walkthrough. Also a list of 1001 niche ideas, a checklist with 25 points to go through before you publish a post, 101 blogging ideas when you get stuck and an A-Z WA dictionary. I just love lists:) It has been very helpful to a lot of people. I have listed them in one blog you can find on my profile. It's the first website link right under “Follow me on” (click on my picture to get there). I hope to help you with those.
