Graeme and Andrea Peak – Regional Coordinators NHM Australasia

Graeme and Andrea Peak were married in October 2010 – their third marriage for both. They participated in their first weekly Love after Marriage workshop before their first wedding anniversary and have been involved ever since. LAM initially brought and continues to bring them both incredible breakthroughs personally, in their relationship, and within their family. Graeme and Andrea have 5 adult children and 10 grandchildren (also a a little dog named Bella).

Graeme has his own business in Aged & Disability equipment, servicing the Melbourne metropolitan region. After 25 years as a midwife, Andrea is now helping Graeme in the business. In their free time, Graeme and Andrea love to go cycling together on the magnificent bike tracks around Melbourne and rail trails in country Victoria, caravanning and camping.  With three trips to Bethel and NHM Spirit Connection trainings, they feel a deep connection with the NHM community and family and are passionate about bringing freedom to marriages and families in Australia.



Andrew & Jacqueline Phoon – LAM Ambassadors

Andrew and Jacqueline Phoon have been involved with NHM since 2013 when they attended their first Love After Marriage workshop in Perth, Western Australia. The workshop has so impacted their marriage and family, that they’ve made what they have learned in the workshop part of their lives.

Andrew and Jacqueline have been married for over 26 years and have two adult children. They have a deep passion to see healing and restoration in marriages and have been facilitating LAM workshops whenever possible. Facilitating LAM workshops have given them the opportunity to experience the work of the Holy Spirit in bringing freedom to couples desiring breakthroughs for their marriages.





David and Ruth Watson – LAM Leaders

David and Ruth WatsonDavid and Ruth Watson were married in January 1971. They are blessed to have two married daughters, a married son and a single daughter and seventeen grandchildren – so far!!!   They have spent many years ministering to people of all ages and while that ministry brought its rewards, their marriage suffered because Godly boundaries were lacking.

In 2014, while visiting their youngest daughter, a BSSM student in Redding USA, they attended a Love After Marriage five day intensive resulting in a journey of challenge and change which continues until the present.  In 2015, they returned to Bethel to attend a Spirit Connection intensive and were so blessed that they felt compelled to share with Brisbane couples the wonderful news “that heaven wants to help” those who long for more in their marriage.

In the courses they’ve run so far, the breakthroughs have continued and it has been a great joy to see other couples also receive the restoring and healing touch of Father.


David & Lisa Purnell – LAM Leaders

Dave & Lisa have been married for 20 years and have 3 children. They live in beautiful Kingscliff on the Queensland and New South Wales border. Both have been involved and served in the church for over 30 years, and have a passion to see lives changed. They believe that their ministry is to see marriages strengthened, so decided to attend a LAM Workshop in Redding, California in 2013.

Dave and Lisa have been involved in facilitating LAM Workshops since returning and recently broadened their calling to include singles and are now facilitating the Single Life Workshop.

Both have a passion to see all relationships strengthened and individuals positioned for healthy, Godly marriages. They love to see Holy Spirit move and bring about healing and restoration.
